Baby and Infant Toys

Toys For 6-12 Month Olds.

Do you need help choosing an infant toy for a child who is having their first birthday?
Moving on from the baby toys that were of interest in earlier months are infant toys which do more to challenge babies as they start discovering the world around them, becoming more mobile and gaining their independence. Moms and dads look out!!

Versatile infant toys- stacking cups

In the second six months of life your baby will make great advances in mobility and dexterity opening a new world of experiences and interests. Sitting, crawling, and the first steps towards walking are all a part of an increasing mobility that allows your baby to get around in their world.

A longer attention span and being able to pass toys from one hand to the other makes blocks and activitiy centres of great interest. Infant toys that teach about cause and effect are also recommended- your baby loves to know that he/she has ‘made’ something happen.
