Babies and toys almost seem synonymous. The mere mention of a baby conjures the image of a toy and likewise the sight of a toy brings to mind a baby. A lot of thought goes beyond creating a baby toy. Baby toys are usually as soft as baby skin and by necessity have to be infant friendly in order to qualify as baby toys.

Babies are precious little beings and the utmost care needs to be taken when choosing items that are going to be close to our precious ones.

Materials & Textures
Baby toys are made of the softest materials available so as not to hurt the soft skin of babies on contact. While manufacturing soft toys care is taken to see that the fibers from the soft toy do not irritate the eyes, throat or nasal passages of the baby. For plastic toys due care is taken to see that virgin plastic is used. Babies are prone to putting almost everything they handle in their mouth. Hence, care is taken to see that the materials used do not contain carcinogens that may harm the baby if accidentally ingested.

Sounds & Colors
No one can stay unmoved at the happy gurgling sound that babies make when they spot bright colored toys that make those cute tinkling sounds. It is a great joy for the parents when they see toys evince such spontaneous response from the baby.

Teething woes
Baby rattlers and soothers are also effective to calm an agitated baby especially when the baby is teething. These when cooled in the refrigerator are especially soothing for a baby’s gums.

Bathing fun
Bath toys are a lot of fun in the tub for the baby in order to distract him when he is averse to being soaped.

Activity centers and baby gyms
Watching a baby cycle away while trying to reach an activity center with podgy hands and feet is an undiluted joy for which honestly, there is no substitute. These and other crib toys can be placed over the crib, hung on the side rails or even on the floor.
Baby toys are indeed a source of great joy to your bundle of joy.
