What is the better choice of the toys for a baby in the period of 3-6 months old?

By Angela Minster

The range of movement skills will broaden in the period of 3-6 months: a child does not just simply reach for the toy with the hand or leg, but he or she can now roll to it in a literal sense. Thus it means it is about time to extend his or her playing space- from time to time it is useful to place your child on the carpet or in a spacious play-pen for exploration.

Prior to this a child perceives the surrounding world by eyesight and hearing, now they will be trying to touch this or that object. Fromathis point of view it is good for the child to have diverse choice of toys in form and texture. You may offer your child a plastic or rubber toys as well as plush and soft ones. "Singing "toys are very good because they are like no other baby toys stimulating deliberate movements of the baby as they attempt to touch the sound source. You may hang a little bell up the baby's cot. When your child moves his or her hands and legs they will swing the cot that will make bell jingle. The little one enjoys these kinds of sound and will want to hear them again and again. Rattles that are fixed carefully on the babies' hands like bracelets also provoke the child stirring his/her hands.

During this period of time (3-6 months) the range of movements of your child is widening, that means you have to "refresh" the spectrum of his or her available toys. Rubber small "animals-tweeters", tilting dolls and primitive musical instruments with big keys represent an inexhaustible source of interest. They are "alive"! They speak, cry, and laugh…when the child touches them.

Thus, these simple exercises with toys help to establish connections with different parts of the brain; which are respondent for visual, auditory, tactile perception and moving functions. Efforts that a child makes trying to master the toy he or she is interested in and difficulties connected with it develop one of the main human capacities- to act purposely and intelligently. Behaviour of your child with the toy is a real independent way to research and discover, as an object as well as an investigation of the potential of his or her own body is a discovery period for all.

It is very important in this period of time not to overburden the child's attention- give him or her a chance to come to know the particulars of one toy, and only after that's should you- offer another one. There is one more detail; charm of novelty always attracts your child; in order not let his or her favourite toy become boring; hide it from time to time, thus after a short period of time the little one will be happy to see it as if it was a new one.
