Find the right baby toys
It’s very important to find the right baby toys, and if you don’t shop wisely you could end up with something that simply isn’t age appropriate and perhaps even dangerous. This is also something you should consider if someone asks you what they should buy your child and you certainly need to check any baby toys that have been bought for your child as presents from people who aren’t too sure how old your baby is. Baby toys are specifically designed for babies. This means that any moving parts on the toy will be safe and secure and impossible for your baby to hurt themselves on or the toy will be big enough, with no removable parts big enough for your baby to swallow.
As they grow
Of course your child won’t stay a baby forever, but they’re still likely to need baby toys as they grow, and remember that it’s better to keep buying those toys that are well under their age so that you avoid all risks of them hurting themselves. Baby toys like building blocks are timeless, but these days safety standards have even put age limits on them. It’s important to understand that baby toys are still classified as baby toys even if your child is over 36 months old; they’re still a baby to you aren’t they? And most of their toys are still likely to be in the baby toys aisle in the toy store.
You can usually stop checking the age limits on toys when they’re much older and able to learn how to play with things in a more fun and productive way; i.e. not putting everything in their mouth! However it’s important to remember not to become complacent with toys if you have another baby; there are far too many accidents involving babies who pick up toys designed for much older children. It’s easy to let your baby play with their brother’s or sister’s toys, but they should really be playing with baby toys.
