Great Toys for Baby's Development #baby #games

Great Toys for Baby's Development

Playing with your baby isn't only great for the  bond you'll form with them, it also helps them develop in all areas. While toys aren't a required part of play for little ones, they can help baby experience new objects, shapes and colors, and help you feel more confident about playtime too! Below I've rounded up a few toys that I found have helped me with my kiddos - and ones I'm using with our newest little one now!

Baby Swings and Seats

Luv U Zoo SpaceSaver Swing & Seat
Seats like this one for baby not only give mom and dad more free time - they help baby to relax in, observe and take in the world around them. Closeness with caregivers is of the utmost importance to babies - being close to you and in your arms bonds you and gives your little one a feeling of security and comfort.
But putting baby down sometimes for play can be beneficial too! Encouraging them to play outside of your arms gives them confidence in their own abilities - and putting them in a safe, soothing chair like the Luv u Zoo us a great way to face baby for play - and take 5 minutes for yourself!

ExerSaucer Triple Fun Active Learning Center

Exersaucers are not only a great way to encourage your baby to stand up - but beginning at 4 months old for most babies, they can be a great way to encourage that all important eye-hand coordination! All the toys inspiring babies to reach out and grab things, and the reward they get when they finally touch it makes them want to do more! Plus it's a great way to include older siblings in baby's play!

Musical Toys

Laugh & Learn Baby Grand Piano

Although the light-up, flashy colors make some parents heads spin, these toys that encourage standing, sitting up and eye-hand coordination are great for babies from 6 months up! Baby gets rewarded by easily pressing buttons, giving them the opportunity to concentrate on sitting or standing skills.

Crawling Tunnels

2-in-1 Safari Adventure Gym & Tunnel

Remember crawling through those tunnels at the park as a kid? There was nothing on the other side - just the reward of having crawled through! So for a baby learning to crawl, these tunnels are great! Not only can mom or dad be on the other side, cheering them on, but the little toys hanging on both sides make for a fun-filled journey too!

Baby Gyms

No, these aren't your typical gyms - no weight machines or treadmills in sight! - but for your baby from 2 months and up, they're a whole workout for mind, body and soul! The colorful toys excite your baby and encourage them to move, while also giving them the opportunity to learn to rollover, reach out and play with mom, dad or sibs!
