Good Toys for 6-12 Months
What to look for?
When it comes to selecting toys for 6-12 months, the Good Play Guide is an invaluable resource for parents and guardians.
This guide, created by child development experts, helps identify toys that support key areas of development such as cognitive, physical, and emotional growth.
One of the key things to consider when choosing toys for this age range is their ability to promote exploration and discovery.
Babies at this stage are becoming more mobile and are eager to learn about their surroundings. Toys that encourage them to reach, grasp, and manipulate objects help develop their fine motor skills and hand-eye coordination.
Another important aspect to consider is the toy’s ability to foster cognitive development.
Look for toys that introduce basic concepts such as cause and effect, as well as those that encourage problem-solving and experimentation. Stackable blocks, shape sorters, and interactive activity mats are all great options.
It’s also essential to choose toys that promote emotional development. Soft dolls, stuffed animals, and other comforting toys can help your baby feel safe and secure as they navigate their new world.
The Good Play Guide takes all of these factors into account and carefully curates a list of toys that meet these criteria and are appropriate for babies between 6-12 months.
By using this guide, parents and guardians can rest assured that they are selecting toys that will support their child’s development in the most crucial period of their lives.
Every toy submitted to the Guide is firstly tested by the important people – children.
While the children play, they are observed by professionals who have been trained to carry out research with children in a robust, and ethically responsible way.
These apps are then put through their paces by our team of experts to ensure they meet our strict criteria in three main areas – Fun, Ease of Use and Skills Developed.
