Baby rattle: An important toy for fostering your child’s motor skills

Every game is a small learning unit for your baby. When playing, your child acquires new skills and continues to expand the skills she has already learnt. With a baby rattle, not only the motor skills are trained, but all important senses are addressed, too. Normally, a baby aged 3 to 6 months discovers what we humans can do with our hands. Then at the latest, it is about time for you to think about buying a baby rattle. That way, you can promote your baby’s motor skills and help her to train and sharpen her senses in a playful way.

Baby toys for all senses

Clutching toys attract babies in a variety of ways. Once your baby is able to hold objects securely, she can continue to train and develop these skills with such a baby toy. By consciously grasping the clutching toy, your child trains her hand-eye coordination. Rattles feature various noises such as crackling, ringing, rustling and many more that all address your child’s sense of hearing.

By exploring a rattle with the mouth, your child learns to distinguish between different shapes.

Rattles and clutching toys are made of different materials such as fabric, plastic or wood. Wooden toys have excellent haptic properties and do not contain any toxic plasticisers. Your baby will love biting on her wooden rattle or exploring it with her little fingers in a playful way. Clutching toys and rattles made of plastic or padded fabric are also well received, because every child simply loves to try out and test everything.

Your child decides which baby toy she likes best! Therefore, you have no choice but to test different models. Only then, you can find out which model is right one for your child.

High-quality toys are a matter of course!

Your baby is not yet able to explore her surroundings independently. That is when a baby rattle stands out as an important tool for improving her motor skills. Every child will be delighted by toys that make crackling, rustling, clattering and rattling noises, and then normally every game with these toys ends in bursts of laughter. Clutching toys and rattles also turn out to be great gift ideas for new parents.

Checklist: Purchase criteria for baby rattles and clutching toys

The category of baby rattles and clutching toys features numerous models: From toys made of wood, plastic or fabric, to those that come in a cheerful pink or blue colour, to others that feature a round, square or animal shape. Choosing the right one for your little one can be quite challenging. Of course, the health and well-being of your child always comes first. For this reason, some quality criteria have to be met when purchasing these toys.

  • The baby toy should comply with the quality and safety standards specified in the DIN standard.
  • In order to train your child’s sense of hearing and touch as well as her grasping skills, the baby toy should be made of a saliva-resistant material and, at best, feature elastic properties.
  • The toy must have a good grip so that your baby can hold the rattle safely in her small hand.
  • There must be no small parts or accessories that can be swallowed.
  • Fabric models should be machine washable at 30°C.
  • If the baby toy makes noises, they should be gentle and soothing.
  • Toxic substances (e.g. solvents or softeners) have no business in children's toys!
