These toys are really helpful in the development of the baby.As the baby grows, you can incorporate block puzzles and let the baby play with them. You can even show them how to go about arranging them and then let them do it on their own. The types of toys should change with age. The toys are meant to stimulate the five human senses of touch, sight, sound, smell and taste and in turn this will create attention, curiosity, memory and also help the development of the nervous system.When getting baby toys, it is important to go for those which will last for a longer time so that they can be passed from one baby to another as they grow to new toys. Before your baby is strong enough to write anything, you can get cloth books which normally come printed with different shapes in different colors.
