In this stage, you parents may notice that your little ones can sit without any help, crawl around and grab objects within their reach. They may not be good at using their fingers to grab objects but they will use the whole hands to help transferring, turning from side to side and twisting upside down.
They also love touching different types of textures. They will notice more of details. They will now be responsive to sounds. You may notice it from when they start to imitate sounds Since there are numerous toys available in the market and most of them are promoted to help enhance child development in various ways, whether it is a picture book helping kids with development of language and communication or a floating water toy promoting intellectual skills, interactive and imaginative skills. However, which one should parents go for? First of all, there are two aspects parents need to consider about:
1. ‘AGE’ - The toys parents choose should be suitable for their ages. Please do not rush your little ones. It takes quite a while for them to develop each skill. Therefore, it is not recommended to let them play toys that are below or above their ages due to their development skills and safety concerns.
2. ‘SAFETY’ - Your little ones are not aware of what could bring them danger. Therefore, their toys should not consist of small parts that can lose to prevent choking and strangulation.
What PlanToys® recommends are:
1. Baby Rattles: Since they are responsive to sounds, this kind of toys will stimulate your baby’s hearing sense. At PlanToys®, we also have babies category for supporting all babies.
