5 Best toys that can boost development of your infant

Brat H adores his toys. He is particularly fond of the ones which offer his antics a bit of a support ;). He is a hyperactive baby and so if he happens to spend good 15 minutes (at a time) totally involved in it, means we made a good deal! Besides, Ace and I are big fans of such baby accessories which offer some sort of infotainment (information-cum-entertainment) to kids. Such toys for infants can serve as a great medium to boost mental development for a baby. They should be age-appropriate, engaging and most importantly should teach your baby a thing or two in the playing process.

From 6 months onwards, infants are able to utilize their motor skills and should be introduced with toys that move or make sounds. Babies in the age group of 6 to 12 months find it enjoyable to play with toys that they can drop, open-shut, bang, stack-up, and has cause and effect features.

As your baby progresses into the latter half of their first year, you can begin to introduce the following types of toys: bath and teething toys, balls, plush dolls, stuffed animals, squeeze toys, soft blocks, shape sorters, activity boxes, stacking toys, rattles, interlocking keys or rings, push-pull toys, simple musical toys, and pop-up toys.

Brands like Fisher-Price, Funskool, Chicco, MeeMee and LeapFrog has a lot of variety for every age group.
