Age Appropriate Toys For Kids

Today, parents can shop toys for their kids just about anywhere. Parents can buy in department stores and online toy boutiques. The selection is endless. If looking toys for your child, consider the following guidelines on how you can pick age appropriate toys for your kid:

Baby Toys and Infant Toys
These are children age 0 to 1. When choosing toys for your baby or infant consider those that stimulate the senses, particularly the senses of sight, sound and touch. However, avoid toys with small parts because the child may choke.

Toddler Toys
Toddlers are full of energy. They are curious beings. They learn through exploration. Pick toys where your toddler can do all sorts of physical activities like pulling, pushing, lugging, knocking down, emptying and filling. Again, do not buy toys with small parts to avoid accidental choking. 

Preschool Toys
Preschoolers love pretend games. They enjoy toys that stimulate their imagination. Find challenging and exciting toys to play with. Encourage your child to explore the wonderful world of geometry, design & construction with puzzles and games.

It is fun to pick toys for kids. However, remember that toys don't replace parents. Make time to play with your child and enjoy the moment together. For other pointers, visit this link: Selecting Toys for Infants and Toddlers (Parenting Pointers)
