Guide to choosing age appropriate toys for baby : 0 to 6 Months

Toys are essential in a child’s development. They spark imagination, help the child to practice and develop their fine and gross motor skills besides providing fun and play.

The first rule that I follow while interacting with my twins is that I do not underestimate their understanding capacity. Do not limit them just because you think they would not comprehend as they are young. Experiment and explore various playthings with them and they will amaze you each day with newly developed skills.

The three main ways I entertain my kids are :

  1. Toys
  2. Music
  3. Books : Read Here , the five classic books to Read Aloud to your baby .

This post will help you choose age appropriate toys for your baby .

  • Newborn Onwards

Newborn babies are fascinated by faces, though they cannot distinguish between a real face vs a fake one. This is one phase where any toy with a hairline-mouth-pattern appears to them like a face. Though at this stage baby’s vision restricts what they enjoy, so whatever grasps their attention has to be really near to them. Their color vision is also weak, hence they enjoy black-white patterns more than coloured. He is still not ready for toys which can be held.
