Every baby is a miracle and such is his still very small world which he starts to explore in a playful way. Age-appropriate baby toys help your child indulge and ensnare his senses by encouraging him to listen, look, taste and feel. Baby toys are important companions for your child while their exciting and colourful features also help you as mom and dad to dive into the magical world of children together with your baby. Get some inspiration form the wide range of baby toys offered by Sterntaler, Haba, Fisher Price or VTech.

Educational toys support the age-appropriate development of your child’s skills. Holding clutching toys fosters your baby’s motor skills as well as his visual perception of different shapes and colours. Toys that are equipped with rattles and little bells or interactive toys that feature sounds and noises are important for a healthy development of your baby’s hearing and promote his speech and language development in a playful way.
It is also important for your child to put toys into his mouth. In this so-called oral stage, your child explores his environment with his mouth, because at this early stage of life his lips and tongue are the most important sensory organs. Whereas, the sense of sight is not (yet) fully developed. Your child learns to distinguish shapes, surfaces, textures and taste while training and stimulating his hand-eye coordination at the same time.
Certain toys are also important for promoting the development of motion sequences. Different shapes, colours and noises motivate your child to turn around or crawl. Mobiles for instance, or crawling blankets are perfect for encouraging your little explorer to do so. Teaching your child how to sit straight or how to walk can be supported properly with baby seats and walkers or ride-on toys that also offer plenty of playing opportunities.
Useful baby toys can promote your little one’s development right from birth and up. The best example for that is Sterntaler’s sleep well figure – a 30 cm cuddly soft toy which features the sounds of a heartbeat. These sounds remind your little one of the heartbeat in your womb and thus make him feel safe and comfortable so that he falls asleep much easier.
Also from his first day on, your child will be madly in love with cuddly cloths or blankets. These cosy and soft companions soothe your child and foster his motor skills at the same time. Fisher Price, Haba, Sterntaler or VTech offer a wide range of washable, completely harmless and safe items.
Children at the age of three months and up fancy everything that moves and makes noises. This is when the right time for a mobile, music box or a crawling blanket with play bar has come. The crawling blanket by Sterntaler features a rattle, squeaking element and crackling paper that encourage your child to grasp, feel, play and move. Even more extensive activities are offered by VTech’s play blanket which does not only come with various grasping elements, but also with a detachable sun that plays songs and texts and thus promotes your child’s speech and language development.
Touch and feel books which are made of soft fabric such as those offered by Fisher Price or pram decorations by Haba are perfect toys for on the go. Haba’s play wraps or the mobiles can easily be attached to the infant car seat or the pram so that your little one can go on a discovery tour every time he likes.
The urge to move is ever growing in your child, that is why at the age of six months at the latest, he will be absolutely keen on crawling, standing up, sitting down and simply exploring his environment. Interactive toys are perfect for this stage of development, because they are made to satisfy your child’s drive to discover and his needs for movement. Baby toys that feature flexible parts such as wheels, doors that can be opened and closed or sliding elements are simply perfect for children at this age.
At about that time, your child will also start to develop his speech and thus try to imitate the sounds and squeaking noises of his baby toys that sing, laugh and make funny noises. In any case, you should choose these toys carefully and always keep in mind that your child’s hearing is still very sensitive to noise. That is why, you should opt for toys that feature a sound level which feels pleasant to your child or even better, for toys that come with a volume control. The baby toys by VTech, Fisher Price, Haba and Sterntaler have proven to be particularly suitable. VTech’s Roll and Sing Caterpillar for instance, is equipped with a volume control or the Shake’n’Beats Tambourine by Fisher Price features a sound level which is adapted in a way that doesn’t harm your little one’s ears.
Whether it is the first every smile, the first little tooth, the first word or the first step – baby toys are important companions throughout all stages of your little one’s development.
Dangers in the form of pieces that can be swallowed easily, poisonous paints and plasticisers or sharp edges can cause injuries or even severe illnesses in babies, infants and toddlers.
That is why, it is important to pay special attention to a high quality and maximum safety when buying baby toys.
Tested and certified brands such as Fisher Price, Haba, Sterntaler or VTech dispense with the use of harmful substances and only produce items that are subject to strict safety tests before they are offered on the market.
Thus, so-called learning or learner’s toys by VTech and Fisher Price are considered to be educationally worthwhile products which are highly recommended due to their outstanding quality. The same applies to toys by manufacturers such as Sterntaler or Haba. Their robust dolls which are completely free from harmful substances, are renowned worldwide and have been very popular for many decades.
Give your little explorer all your love and safety – and the right baby toys that are designed to promote a heathy development in your child.
