What are educational toys?

Babies love to play, we all know that they love toys and toys today offer a lot more than just fun for the little ones who enjoy them. Most toys on today’s market offer some opportunity for little ones to learn whether it is engaging a child’s senses, learning how to interact with others or spark their young imaginations.

What types of educational toys are there?

Popular toys for very young babies include rattles and those that offer music. The sounds they make are great fun and help teach them to hold objects and listen to new sounds.

Other educational toys include building blocks that help little ones to improve their hand-eye coordination and help to build their motor skills.

There are a variety of educational toys for young babies available and usually they focus on different textures, colours and sounds to help babies learn their early senses.

Toys that talk can be very educational as their language development starts at birth and as soon as they are exposed to hearing sounds the more language they hear the earlier they start to develop these skills.

Top tips

All baby toys come with an age appropriate warning and it’s important to follow this as manufacturers follow strict guidelines to ensure all toys are safe for the age group they are made for.
