As your baby grows and gets acclimated to life at home, they begin to develop quickly. At the six-month mark, babies are more likely to respond to familiar faces, recognize voices, and pick up on a variety of social and environmental cues from the world around them. At this developmental stage, having access to baby learning toys helps cultivate their natural curiosity and engagement with the world.
The toys that you give your baby now can significantly influence their continued development. Because of this, toys that reinforce a baby's ability to recognize different sounds, colors, and other sensory stimuli are best.
Additionally, the learning toys you give your baby need to be durable and versatile for the variety of ways your child will interact with it. At this stage of development, babies’ motor skills begin to catch up with their natural curiosity. Babies begin to explore the world in different ways, including trying to eat anything they can get their hands on, and their toys have to be built with this safety concern in mind — something we take into deep consideration at Discovery Toys.
Musical Toys for Babies
Musical toys can address multiple facets of childhood development. The musical notes or melodies from the toy allow your baby to learn and differentiate sounds while picking up on various cues associated with that sound. At this stage of development, you can also become active participants in their learning and playtime by singing along with the musical toy. Babies can also learn to create musical sounds with kid-powered musical toys and how to vary the sounds.
Baby Learning Books
Throughout early childhood, books have an essential role in your child’s overall development. Reading to your child will help them respond and recognize different sounds. With the variety of educational books in our inventory, your child will have access to a wide range of educational books that will keep them engaged throughout storytime and provide unforgettable memories.
Building blocks can prove to be an essential learning toy for your baby. Your child can begin to learn how to build different structures and recognize the unique images on each block. At this stage of their development, it is about your baby’s curiosity to continue growing, and they interact with their surroundings in different and continually developing ways.
As your baby grows and continues to explore the world around them, they begin to interact with more external stimuli. Your baby experiences learning through simple games like peek-a-boo, and the right toys enable them to experience these things differently. The process of your baby learning through games and play is critical as they learn to respond to the evolving world around them.
While these games aren’t as complex as the games they will play when they get older, the learning that your baby engages in with these toys can facilitate their continued development. At this stage, you can begin to introduce light elements of problem-solving into their playtime.
In addition to our variety of baby learning toys, Discovery Toys offers a variety of educational toys for children ages:
