Haven’t baby toys come a long way since you were a kid? Modern baby toys are bright and engaging, teaching babies through the various elements that are each designed with a purpose. Well, at least that’s our approach at Mother’s Choice. We know how important play is for babies and how curious minds are developing through every interaction. The role of infant toys is vital in this development.

Many parents are choosing to use the latest gadgets, such as phones and iPads, to entertain their baby with videos, games and more - and this is totally okay! Technological advances have given parents even more options to stimulate, entertain and help their child develop. However, there are also benefits in traditional baby toys, such as puzzles, stacking games and mobiles, that encourage interaction, heighten the senses and help develop fine motor skills. Having a selection of different newborn baby toys on hand can ensure your baby has all the tools they need to learn.

As babies grow and start to engage more with the world around them, the opportunities for play and introducing baby toys also increases. Baby toys are handy particularly when you are doing tummy time with baby and when you are out and about. As your baby gets older and they are looking for more stimulation from toys, your haul of baby toys will grow with them!

While you are out and about, stroller arches and stroller toys can really help keep baby happy while you go about your day. Often babies will want to stay close to their parents but attaching some baby toys or an arch to the stroller will give them something bright to look at, to start grasping for and keep them happy and alert.

At tummy time, a play mat will keep baby comfortable and safe while they practice building their neck strength and interaction with the world around them. Baby toys scattered around the play mat also give them something to search for encouraging them to look beyond mum or dad and start reaching for objects.

At Mother’s Choice we have a range of baby toys including developmental toys, stroller arches, stroller toys, play mats and cot mobiles that encourage development and celebrate the joy and magic of babies.

How to store and care for your baby toys

When you have a baby you can certainly accumulate quite the collection of baby toys. Storing and caring for them properly will ensure they last longer and don’t become a hazard for your baby.

Keep them clean

Remember that babies put everything in their mouths and their baby toys are no exception. To avoid introducing any nasty germs to your baby, it’s important to keep your toys clean. Always follow the instructions on the toys but many will be machine washable while others may only be able to be surface cleaned.

For any attachments such as teethers or chew toys, give them a good clean after each time your baby has played with them. Warm soapy water should be sufficient, although once again follow the care instructions on the label. Play mats should also be washed regularly.

Watch out for any repairs

As much as you care for baby toys, sometimes an over enthusiastic older sibling or friend can do damage to a baby toy that needs repairing. Every so often check over your baby toys for any stitching that needs to be repaired or for loose parts. These can be hazards for a baby.

Buy back ups of favourites

If your baby has an absolute favourite toy that they can’t be without, it’s also a good idea to buy back ups. A good idea it to rotate between the back ups as if you lose the much loved original and try to replace it with a brand new one, well that’s just not going to cut it!

Try toy rotation

If you have multiple baby toys, toy rotation is a good idea. Keep the toys in tubs or boxes and every few weeks, switch out the toys that your baby plays with. This ensures that you don’t have toys stuffed at the back of the cupboard and keeps them engaged with their toys for longer as they are always fresh and different. Toy rotation works for babies and equally for older kids.

Have toys on hand

As much as you want to keep your baby toys tidy, it’s also a good idea to keep a few toys on hand and within reach in places like the car and in your nappy bag. Keeping something on hand means you won’t get stuck if baby gets upset and you need something to cheer them up. It’s also handy for delays when you end up out for longer than expected.

The Mother’s Choice range of baby toys are affordable and practical, encouraging learning and discovery at such a beautiful time in a family’s life.
