Toys are more than just fun and games for kids. Most toys provide at least some opportunity for children to learn. The best toys engage a childâs senses, spark their imaginations, and encourage them to interact with others. Babies are eager to learn about the world around them, and they have much to learn. Every new shape, color, texture, taste, and sound is a learning experience for them. Giving your baby toys that are safe and stimulating will help him discover his senses. Rattles and toys that make music are favorites of infants. Toys with contrasting colors are fascinating to babies and stimulate their developing vision. As they grow, infants can use toys to explore object permanence and cause and effect relationships. They also need objects such as blocks to help them build motor skills and hand-eye coordination.
