Clutching toys and baby rattles are some of the best first toys for your baby because they help them develop their motor skills. Here you can find a colourful selection of popular, tried and tested toys your little one can explore with all of their senses in their first few months of life. With this you give your baby a lot of joy, provide an entertaining activity and ensure playful learning right from the start. We hope you have fun exploring our range.
Babies don't need or want a toy for the first two months. They may instinctively hold onto a toy you put in their hand. However, in terms of motor skills, they cannot do very much with it at first and would therefore much rather watch or listen to the toy. From around two to three months of age, when your baby's hands open and they first discover what they can do with them, toys become much more valuable as educational tools.
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. To ensure that your baby can develop motor skills in the best possible way through new impressions, you can provide them with child-friendly toys. Baby rattles and clutching toys are particularly suitable for this.
With a baby rattle, not only the motor skills are trained, but all the 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.
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 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.

A baby rattle or clutching toy is a small, but important toy for your baby as it encourages their development and promotes their motor skills.
