A guide for toys and the development of babies and children
Tips and recommendations for selecting toys based on the age of babies and infants
Suitable toys are very important for the development of every child because the majority of their cognitive, social, and motor development takes place during play. With lots of fun and many new impressions, our descendants learn to discover the world around them and comprehend the unknown. Everything that children see, hear, touch, and hold, they learn for good.
In addition, playing supports their natural desire and motivation to learn, and therefore their curiosity, too. All of these components are important building blocks for their acquisition of educational skills in school which are built on top of these first components.
In the following sections, we will explain which development stages children go through and which toys are particularly important at which ages in order to support you with the purchase of toys. Of course, despite this advice, the selection of a toy depends on the individual child in question. A parent's feeling of whether or not a toy is suitable for their child or not is just as important and worthy of consideration.
Milestones of Childhood Development
Support the development progress of your children with the right toys
When growing from a baby to an infant, children go through several development steps. Seeing, hearing, speaking, cognitive and social skills are competencies that babies and infants have to learn next.
