Tips and toys for stimulating your baby’s development

The time from newborn to toddler flies by so fast, and there’s a lot to take in – actually, everything. From learning to recognise basic colours and simple shapes to running around on your own two feet, nothing gets your baby’s development going like playtime.

Learning in good company

Toys help babies develop their senses and make the surroundings feel more familiar after a while. A baby gym is good for exercising eye-hand coordination, just as a baby mobile helps stimulate eyesight – but the colourful shapes are also excellent friends to simply have around.

For a baby, surprising things quickly become favourite things. Like a bright yellow giraffe with contrasting black dots and a fun rattling sound.

Levelling up your skills

Constructivism and creativity

Around 1 year most children are well into experimenting and discovering. Structures, colours and patterns enhance the play-and-learn experience, like these stacking rings that stimulate both logical thinking and creativity.
