Most recently, my crumb was a helpless little ball that didn’t react to people or toys. Now everything has changed. My baby is already 5 months old! She is already trying to crawl and does not lose sight of any bright toy.
Choosing toys for two daughters is very unusual. The eldest is always pleased with the new doll or pink pony. But what toys will be interesting to children to a year? After all, they are developing at an incredible speed. It seems that only yesterday the baby was lying in the crib, looking at the ceiling, but today he is already deftly moving on the floor on all fours. How not to make a mistake when choosing toys for a particular age? I propose to discuss this issue.
At this age, the development of visual and auditory perception. In the month, babies begin to follow the face of an adult, and in two they are already looking at the drawings on the wallpaper. During this period, it is desirable to attach a mobile (carousel) to the crib.
My daughter looked at the mobile up to 4 months with interest. We chose a musical model with a delicate lullaby melody. While the music is playing – the bears on the mobile move smoothly, the child relaxes and falls asleep.
Also at this age, you must purchase the first rattle. It will help train the visual perception. The main thing is that the rattle is bright (it is believed that children perceive yellow color better), thin and light, so that the baby can hold it in the handle.
During this period, the child is already free to take light toys into the pens. If there is no opportunity to reach out to some of them, then you can always roll over 🙂 It is at this age that the first fall of the baby occurs. Therefore, it is time to expand the gaming space.
We are very useful developing mat, which I bought the eldest daughter. Baby looked with interest toys suspended on the arcs. Now, at 5 months, she turns over on the tummy and goes through the tweeters and shurshalki on the rug. True, and crawls from it very often.
Also, rubber toys (on which my daughter regularly scratches the gums), rodents, dolls and musical toys came in handy.
At this age, children crawl freely, and some even walk along the support. Also develops fine motor skills. If before the child grabbed everything with a whole palm, now he is learning to do it with a pinch or fingers.
The kid will be interested in learning musical toys, for example, a children’s piano. Anything that spins, spins, and pushes will cause untold delight in the little tester. When buying toys with small details, you should make sure that they are securely attached to the body of the toy and the baby will not be able to swallow them or put them into the nose.
At this age, the baby begins to master the game with two objects at the same time. For example, if you rattle on a pyramid, a knock will appear. He is very interested in such games!
Pyramids, cubes, sorters and designers with large details – the most interesting toys for kids of this age. Toddlers who have already started walking will appreciate wheelchair toys.
