Babies and toddlers learn by playing, so choosing the right toys is an important way to foster their growth and development.
Even infants who aren't yet mobile can be introduced to toys that stimulate their senses of sight and sound and, eventually, touch. Look for musical mobiles to hang above the crib and changing table, and consider getting an infant swing with an overhead toy bar featuring hanging toys that your baby can look at and touch. As your baby grows older, they'll also enjoy rattles and teethers, play stations and baby gyms.
Toddlers (between 1 and 3 years) are ready for more physical play. For outdoor play, look for riding toys and balance bikes, balls, wagons and water stations or sandboxes. For indoor play, look for large, colorful blocks, puzzles and board games. Toddlers often respond to toy models that make them work a little and let them feel like they're meeting a goal.
