That precious bundle that you hold in your hands is like a sponge, soaking up all the new sights and sounds that they encounter. We stimulate this learning further by providing them with some of the best educational toys on the market.

This can be a confusing minefield to navigate but some things to keep in mind when making those purchases are:

Age appropriate toys:

Toys have to be suitable for both the age of the child and the stage of development. It’s no good buying a toy meant for a three year old but the intended recipient is only 6 weeks.

Cost of the toys: 

Toys can vary in price hugely, depending on where they are being purchased from and the brand of the toy. If you are going to make a significant financial investment in a toy, ensure that it will continue to grow with the child and not be thrown on a shelf when the child becomes too old to play with it in a few weeks time.

♥ Here are the best educational toys for your baby ♥
