Vulli's Tips and Advice on How To choose A Toy For Baby
Play allows a baby to familiarise himself with the surrounding world and to develop. As they pass through the different phases of growth, each baby develops their own pace and develop personality.
Information acquired as the months go by varies with each individual infant. Here are a few reference-points to help you choose the most appropriate toy for your baby’s development.
0-3 months - A baby perceives movement and colour, and listens to sounds. Fascinated by abacuses and mobiles, they usually suck anything he can put into their mouth. They try to grasp objects around them; at 2 months, they love rattles and teething-rings.
3-6 months - as soon as they can sit upright, they are particularly fond of playmats and soft fabric toys, loving toys which make a noise. They can laugh and make vocal noises at this stage.
6-9 months - baby begins to crawl, tries to keep their balance, and manages to grab toys. They can sit up easily and appreciates teething-rings to give them gum some relief when their first teeth start to come through. They like activity gyms, bath toys, and soft toys, one of which will certainly become the ‘comfort’ toy.
9-12 months - baby crawls or goes about on all fours. They try to get the hang of toys such as fabric books or stacking/building toys by exploring them or comparing them. Once they can stand upright, they may like to play with vehicles in order to increase mobility.
12-24 months - baby is mad about ‘pulling/pushing’ toys. Now more precise in their movements, they may love activity toys. As soon as they can walk, ride-on toys may be used all the time. “Special effects” bath toys which can be filled, squirted, emptied, etc. can also become a favorite at this age.
24-36 months - baby gets about rapidly and easily, wanting to do everything on their own. Everything around them allows for instinctively recreating their "cocoon" within the family, identifing with people. Baby is growing and doesn’t like you to go away: all their tricks are worth trying to postpone bed-time, hence, a night-light or musical box can reassure him and help him go to sleep.
