Trains

From toddler-powered choo-choos like Thomas the Tank Engine to Tyco’s more serious electric model train sets, trains, tracks, and stations fascinate children of all ages.

Trucks

Be they dump, garbage, monster, or fire, trucks appeal to kids of all ages and genders.

Wind-Up Toys

From music boxes and chattering teeth to crawling critters and swimming scuba divers, wind-up toys entertain kids while teaching them cause-and-effect.

Product Features

Be they wooden, plastic, metal, or cloth, baby toys are designed with your tiny player in mind. Some are best suited for indoors, while others are much better for outside or for when you and your Baby are on the go.

Location

Some baby toys may be geared for a certain play location such as indoors, outside, or in the water.

Material

Baby toys can be made out of plastic, metal, wood, foam, or fabric. All toys sold in the U.S. are required to meet material safety regulations set forth by the Consumer Product Safety Commission.

Attachment

Some baby toys may have loops, rings, or Velcro to attach the toy to a crib, stroller, highchair, or baby carrier. These attachments make it easy to take the toys from place to place and prevent them from getting lost.

Cleanable

Some baby toys are easy to clean in the washing machine or dishwasher.

Multiple Uses

Many toys, such as blocks, sorting toys, and animals, support various types of play.

Interactive

Whether with lights, music, noises, or movement, many baby toys are interactive, entertaining children and teaching them about cause-and-effect.

Chewable

Babies put nearly everything in their mouths, so baby toys are designed to withstand drool and chewing; some even have antibacterial surfaces. However, still be cautious of toys with small parts that may break off and pose a potential choking hazard.

Educational

Aside from entertainment, baby toys can teach children about letters, numbers, shapes, sounds, colors, object names, and textures.

Purchase Considerations

Before you buy a baby toy, keep in mind its age range, durability, versatility, and educational value. Also consider its storage requirements.

Age range

Many toys will list a recommended age range for those who use it. If you have more than one child in the house, be sure the toy is safe for all of them or that it is kept out of reach of younger children. 

Durability

Kids are notoriously rough on toys. Select toys that look like they can withstand a few flights through the air or trips down the stairs.

Versatility

Kids are great at repurposing objects, and toys are a natural fit for this. Choose options such as blocks, which can be played with in a variety of ways -- and at different ages and stages -- to build creativity and prolong use.

Educational value

There’s nothing wrong with toys that are purely fun. Yet take advantage of the sponge-like nature of kids at this early stage and select toys that will help develop their cognitive, linguistic, and/or fine-motor skills.

Storage

Before you buy a baby toy, consider if you have adequate space and containers in which to store it. No one wants a pile of life-sized stuffed animals crowding up her living room.
