Naturally, babies love toys and need them for both entertainment and development of their motor and social skills.
However, most parents tend to buy too many, unsuitable or unnecessary toys for their babies. Do we always buy sensibly?
I believe that limiting the number of toys is essential.
|Too many toys mean more clutter in your house.
|A storage solution is essential especially in small spaces.
|Babies can get over stimulated with too many toys around them.
|Many toys are used for a short period of time especially during the first year.
|Your baby will get a lot of toys as gifts from family and friends thus don't hurry to buy and save money.
There are many wonderful baby toys on the market and although it is so tempting to buy, before buying, here are some tips to consider:
|Make sure the toy is strong and will not separate easily.
|Be aware of the facts that old toys do not meet today's safety standards and may contain lead.
|Choose toys that suit your baby's development.
|Check age labeling on the toy.
