If you’ve been to Toys R Us and have been totally puzzled about which toy to select, you are not alone! I’ve found myself in the same situation many, many times before.
The first thing to keep in mind when buying the best baby toys is this: Make it age-appropriate.
For instance, Lego for a 5-month-old just doesn’t work. Although they are super-colourful, the hazards they pose to babies are many — baby could choke on the tiny blocks, or stick them in his ears or nostrils.
Most toys actually come with an age recommendation on their packaging, so always check it first. Another thing that will help a lot is to ask other mums for their tried and tested toy recommendations.
That’s where the ever-helpful mums of our 2013 mums Facebook group come in! Keep reading for their best baby toy picks for babies 6 months and below.
