How To Find The Best Baby Sensory Toys

Want to know how to find the best baby sensory toys?

There are a few things to consider when looking for the best baby sensory toys. Sensory toys are designed to stimulate your baby’s growing senses, which include vision, sound, touch, taste and smell. They also help with fine motor skill development, hand-eye coordination, and cognitive development.

Here are some tips to help you find the best baby sensory toys:

Consider the different senses - Sensory toys should stimulate the senses and lead learning and development forward. Toys with interesting textures, reflective patterns, bright colours, sounds or shapes are ideal for stimulating your baby’s sense of touch, sound or sight.

Look for age-appropriate toys - It's important to choose toys that are appropriate for your baby's age and stage of development. Your baby will reach certain milestones at different stages, so be sure to check the recommended age range before purchase.

Take into account what your baby likes - Every baby has different interests, and you know your baby best. Take into account what type of toys your baby seems to enjoy most such as soft toys, interactive picture books, rattles, baby-safe instruments or stacking toys.

Choose toys that are safe - Seems obvious but always make sure that the toys you choose for your baby are safe. Avoid toys with small parts, batteries or magnets that present a serious choking or health hazard if swallowed. Ensure they are made from non-toxic materials and are safe for mouthing or chewing.

Look for toys that are durable - Safety is paramount so it's important to choose toys that are durable, non-breakable, washable, and can withstand a lot of use.

Look for toys that can grow with your baby - Classic toys such as stackers, shape-sorters, stacking cups, and puppets invite interaction and can be used in different ways as your baby grows. Look for toys that have multiple play functions, provide fun and entertainment, and can be used for a long time.
