Ensuring an imaginative playtime for little ones whilst protecting them from any risk is a fine balance. This is where soft toys are such great fun. Playing with soft toys can help build up a baby’s reflexes and develop their hand-eye coordination.
Skills developed during play will help develop infants that are more prepared to move around independently. This inquisitive nature will hopefully grow into a richer appreciation for the baby’s environment.
Selecting a soft toy as a baby gift can mean choosing from anything from balls to dolls puppets and teddies or maybe a soft book for baby to explore? There are soft rattles too which can be used without the risk of any accidental injury.
Cloth toys make better choices for baby gifts rather than soft toys made out of fake fur or hair as these can become choking hazards when the infant explores the present.
Similarly try not to select gifts that have hard buttons or eyes that can easily be bitten or pulled off. Indeed, before selecting your baby gift you must check it over for any hazards or design flaws that might have been overlooked.
Shopping for a soft toy as a baby gift is an exciting and thought provoking event, made all the more meaningful when you see the child at play.
