HOW TO CHOOSE DEVELOPING TOYS FOR CHILDREN

Any modern online store of educational toys can offer its customers dozens of different options for children aged 3 months to 3 years. Such a variety of options can completely confuse young parents. In order to avoid such a problem, they need to be guided by several criteria.

AGE
The first and main criterion for choosing educational toys for children is age. At each specific age, children have different needs in stimulating certain physical and intellectual skills. For example, at the age of up to one year, children need developing toys that train their eyesight, touch and hearing. In addition, educational toys for children up to a year should train coordination between hands and eyes. An example of such children’s products are rattles and mobiles.

Educational toys for children from 1 year old should teach children to climb, walk and maintain balance. In addition, they should help to familiarize the kids with the world around them. An example of such a children’s product is cubes, which provide the development of the eye, coordination of movements and attention, and also strengthen the muscles of the hands. At this age, children’s educational toys such as finger coloring, crayons, pyramids, puzzles, etc. are also popular among kids. Another popular option is a special developmental rug, on which various animals, cities and musical instruments are painted. Such a rug will allow the child to get even closer to the world around him.

Finally, at the age of 2-3 years, toys should be developed speech skills, motor skills, thinking and logic. Therefore, at this age, it is customary for kids to give sound ABCs and books, mosaics, pyramids, in-game games and other educational toys for children 2 years old. You also need to pay attention to the physical development of children. Based on this, at the age of three years, children love to play with the ball, ride a bicycle and use other sports equipment.

FLOOR
Another important criterion for choosing educational toys is the gender of the baby. This criterion is only relevant when buying toys for children from the age of three. Until this age, educational toys for girls and boys are practically no different. But at the age of 4 years and older, girls most often prefer role-playing games that provide the development of creative skills and imagination. Boys at this age prefer ball games, constructor, puzzles and other small items.

SECURITY
Educational toys for babies should be as safe as possible. Therefore, it is not recommended to purchase toys with small or removable parts, sharp edges, springs and open electrical contacts. Children should also stay further away from toys with heating elements and an accessible battery compartment.

QUALITY
Having decided to buy educational toys for children 1 year old, parents must necessarily consider the quality of the children’s goods. Therefore, parents should always contact those online stores that can demonstrate quality certificates for their entire range. Parents should understand that low-quality and cheap baby products can adversely affect the development of the baby. This is due to the fact that such products are usually made from harmful substances that are dangerous to the health of babies.

In conclusion, it is worth emphasizing that the toy should not only develop, but also please the child. This nuance should be taken into account when choosing this children’s product.
