Top Toys for Babies for 2014| 6, November 2014
Play is baby's work, so toys are baby's work equipment. While the assortment of bells and whistles available to today's children is astounding, rest assured, however, Mom and Dad are still baby's number one playthings.
When looking for toys, you want to consider a number of factors. First off, is it safe? This is usually fairly easy to ascertain. Abide by the age guidelines one toys, and be aware of any possible choking hazards. If the toy isn't new, make certain there are no recalls on it. Make choices that are age-appropriate to baby's development. Look for toys that will stand up to the beating a well-loved toy is sure to get.
Don't just focus on the most technologically advanced toys, either; sometimes the best toys are the simplest and most old-fashioned. They have stood the test of time for a reason, after all.
