From the moment when babies make their entrance into the world to the celebration of their first birthday, toys play an important role in their development. Give priority to safety whenever you buy gifts for newborns. Brightly coloured mobiles and toys that make noise can encourage co-ordination of movements and improve concentration. Even reading to babies promotes their language development. Choose from cloth books and board books with colourful and high contrast pictures to grab their attention. Baby gyms are specifically designed to strengthen their muscles and make them ready to move around. Activity centres are also great ways to keep the little explorers entertained all the time.
