People may think, why do infants need toys at an age where they just need to eat, make dirty nappies and sleep? But, even at the mere age of 3 months, babies start becoming interested in the world around them, and this can be a great time to introduce new things to them. Therefore, it is best to get them fun toys to keep them entertained and aid in their development stage.
If you’re searching for yourself or to gift, here are some features you should look for while choosing infant toys –
Different Soft Textures –Babies are working on their fine motor skills at this age. Interesting rubbery, velvety, satiny, and fluffy textures can help make it more fun and develop their skills.
Bright Colours & Patterns – A baby's vision is fully developed only when over 5 months old. Contrasting colours and patterns like stripes and checkerboards help them see and focus better on objects. Black and white are best for newborns, while older babies love brighter colours.
Safe for Chewing – Babies will put anything they get their hands on in their mouths. Hence, it's essential to give them teethers and toys that have no harmful chemicals and no small parts that they might eat or choke on.
Easy to Clean – It's crucial to frequently clean and dry the infant toys. Ensure that you dry off materials like silicone, plastic, and rubber properly as they can be susceptible to mold.
