Toys for Babies

Toys are vital for a baby’s mental and physical development, plus they can give your baby the biggest smiles as they have lots of fun. While the first few months of a newborn’s life seem to be about feeding and sleeping, and changing nappies, the playtime and joy they have with toys is just as important.

Tactile toys which allow babies to grip and shake, toys they can put into their mouths, all can help develop young brains, make links between objects and understand the world around them.

Keep it simple, of course, and join in. Get down on the ground with your baby. Hold some toys and have them track and follow with their eyes, reaching out with their hands, and smiling their big baby grins.
