Playing with striking colors and producing sounds will stimulate the brain, hearing and muscles of the baby. Choosing the appropriate game will help your baby in determining the identity in the next period, choose the right game with the gender of your baby. Generally research shows that play has an effect on your child’s personality, maybe you find boys who are too feminine or girls who are too tomboyish. This could be due to the selection of games that are not right with the gender of your baby. Games that are not intended for men or women are usually influenced by environmental factors, such as the desire to see their siblings. If your baby has chosen his own game and lightened the game that is not according to gender, you should be wise to explain it. The materials used in making baby toys must be considered. Remembering that babies are very sensitive to new objects, especially if they come into contact with your baby’s skin. Likewise, if the material is made of plastic, check the code for the plastic the toy uses. Many of them choose toys made from wood because the material is safe, even so you have to pay attention to the dye used, especially if the color fades and the baby puts it in his mouth.
The shape of the game is your next concern, avoid sharp shapes that will hurt your baby. Likewise, a small form that can completely fit into the baby’s mouth so that it requires extra supervision from you, it should be avoided first when your baby is under one year old. Choose toys that are appropriate for the age of the baby, which will usually be listed on the packaging. Introduce your baby to toys that can introduce him to his environment and social life. Playing with peers will help your baby adapt to new friends, be sociable and respectful. You still have to keep an eye on him, especially if you involve some of his toys when playing games with his peers. Even so, basically you don’t need to limit playing with baby toys, this is to help stimulate your baby’s development, especially his intelligence, agility and creativity. Baby toys don’t have to be expensive, but you should pay attention to the function of the game. Some toys will actually make your baby learn in fun ways such as puzzles, counting blocks and others. Thus it is important for you to pay attention to the choice of your baby’s toys, especially for babies who are still in the oral phase (inserting objects into their mouths) so that it is feared that some harmful chemicals will enter their bodies.
