Top Toys for babies this Christmas


“A child reminds us that playtime is an essential part of our daily routine.” Author: Unknown

In the first 9 months babies learn about themselves and the world around them. Everything is brand new. They are eager to explore colour, movement, texture, shape and sound. Sensory experiences are so important at this age. Babies explore not only with their hands but very much with their mouths and so toys must be suitable and safe for chewing. Older babies begin to understand cause and effect so enjoying having toys that respond to their actions something they can push or pull, build up and knock down. These toys are perfect for engaging little ones and encouraging them to experiment explore.
