If you haven't yet heard, there is a new site that makes is super simple to find age appropriate toys for kids. Ebeanstalk has put together toys grouped in age categories from birth to 7& up. They have researched the best developmental toys in each group and have listed them on the site for your convenience.
One of the best features of the site (in my opinion) is their gift series. For Christmas, a birthday, or a birth (even as a shower gift) you can put in the age of the child and every three months, for a year, a new gift will arrive. You can use their pre-selected, age appropriate gifts or choose different gifts in the same age grouping. A great idea for a relative who may be out of state and wants to remind a child how much they are loved. Here's the Press Release from Ebeanstalk:
Ebeanstalk is dedicated to a baby's development. And we select the best baby toys matched to a baby's development. To see great information on how a baby grows up, check out the info on our baby toys page.
Picking toys for a baby is not as simple as it sounds. Here are some quick baby facts:
- Toys for a newborn baby: A newborn baby is briefly looking at objects and attempting to imitate facial expressions. They can follow objects with their eyes and usually quiet down, when they are picked up.
- Toys for a three month old: They will enjoy ‘frolic play', reaching for objects and will repeat enjoyable activities. Believe it or not, they will respond to ‘no' (about half the time) and will start babbling.
- Toys for a six month old: They'll search for hidden objects (object permanence). They'll reach for themselves in the mirror, play peekaboo, crumple paper, roll from their stomach to their back and even respond to their name.
- Toys for a nine month old: They are pushing toy cars, playing pat-a-cake and looking for hidden sounds. The baby toys they are playing with are also getting more fun.
