Buying a toy for your tiny tot is not at all difficult as there are a lot of toys in the market out there. However, when shopping for toys for toddlers, do remember that children of different ages have different attention spans thus it would be a good choice to get the little tots something brightly colored and musical such that it captivates the attention of the child for a long time. Also, there are many educational toys that will help a child to play and learn and also develop essential skills.
The best toys I personally prefer for children one year or below of age are ‘push’ toys. These toys come with long handles and have balls or wheels at the end of it and are meant to be pushed. These are made for toddlers and are very safe. Some of these kinds also play musical notes when pushed. These toys also help to play and learn (in Danish leg og lær).
Children learn to start walking and it also improves there locomotion skills as they run/walk with the toys.
If your tot is a little princess then a baby doll will be the best choice. Nowadays baby dolls have become very realistic with belly buttons, soft hair, eyes, and defined facial features. The little girls love playing with baby dolls and these toys actually make them feel more secured. They also role play with these toys thus cultivating positive emotions in them.
For your tiny boy scout you can get beach toys—they come in sets and have a shovel, a sand sifter, a watering can and a bucket. These toys will keep the boys occupied for hours in the garden, backyard or on the beach!
Bilibo is another great type of toy that I found when going through toy categories.
It is a really a tank amongst toys—shock proof, virtually unbreakable, food proof, stain proof, made from recycled materials and is recyclable itself. A bilibo looks like a face. The toy is meant for the child to sit in and has a lot of attachments and there are a lot of things you can do with a bilibo. It encourages open ended play and learn games and helps the child’s mental growth.
These are but a handful of toys that help in your tot’s overall development. So just head over to your nearest online store and choose the toy you want.
