|« Everyone wants a Brainy Kid!||The Stages of Play »|
Over the last few decades we've seen enormous advances in the design of toys for babies, with most toys aimed specifically at stimulating the senses of a newborn baby. If you read the manufacturers' descriptions, you would think that we have only just learned how to keep a baby's attention, but parents have known these secrets forever! The world is full of so many fun things that a baby can be allowed to play with that stimulate senses of colour, feel and sound that you don't need to buy into the latest 'must have' toy. There are so many products available on the market that it can be easy to get carried away, but your baby only needs a small number of toys, you can add to the sensory learning by playing with household objects and interacting directly with your baby yourself!
