Baby toys keep little ones amused while aiding their natural development. Bright colors and fascinating shapes and materials motivate your baby to train his/her dexterity and sensory awareness through play. In order to provide optimal opportunities for play-based learning, it is important to make careful choices. More information >
Leander kicks his legs happily while following the movements of the mobile that his Dad Tobias has just poked. In the first weeks of life, his little son spent most of the time sleeping. Tobias recalls how that suddenly changed. The baby has since started exploring his own fists with his mouth and is capable of grasping objects. Mom Nina and Dad Tobias want to give their little one a suitable baby toy to feel and explore. Together, they go in search of the ideal toy.
“Look what happens when I press this button,” says Tobias enthusiastically. Nina realizes her baby won’t yet be able to operate the talking car Tobias is holding. She’s looking for a baby toy that fits perfectly in her baby’s hands. But owing to the abundance of colorful shapes and charming motifs, they’re spoiled for choice. The choice of manufacturers and materials also seems endless. Tobias wonders whether clutching toys from Haba are as suitable as toys made from soft materials. He wants to make sure that no harm comes to his offspring.
Our little family is well on the way to selecting a baby toy appropriate for the child’s age. The parents take a close look at the functions, material and suitability for tiny hands. They want to arouse their son’s interest without overtaxing him. This is the best way to assist the instinctive learning process. Manufacturers such as Haba, Sterntaler and many others design baby toys geared to the various different stages of development. By way of a purchasing guide for grandparents, parents and other relatives using our online shop, we publish age recommendations for all our products.
A colorful clutching toy from Haba with movable limbs appeals most to Mom Nina. She shows the toy to her son, who appears to take an avid interest in the colorful shapes. Dad Tobias has his doubts: “Will the paint stand up to teething?” In order to make quite sure, Tobias asks a member of the customer service team.
Toys sold here in the EU require a CE mark. However, this is not an independent certification mark. Our Dad is therefore wise to question the safety of the baby toy. Sharp edges, chemical odors and detachable small parts are fairly obvious to parents. Harmful substances, on the other hand, are hard to detect. It is therefore all the more important to select manufacturers whose products have been tested by an independent institute and manufactured using transparent production methods which do not involve toxic substances. These are the criteria which we from kidsroom.de have used to select baby toys for our online shop. Haba, for instance, attaches great importance to saliva-resistant paint and native, robust wood species. Even when Leander’s teeth have come through, he won’t be exposed to any risk of peeling paint or wood splinters from his clutching toy. See our online shop for information about toys which will help your child explore the world through play.
