What Makes Infant Toys a Hit

There are many things about infant toys that make babies smile, clap, giggle and have fun. When shopping for baby toys for your own baby or as a baby gift, keep in mind a few basics for the best choices.

  • Anything soft is always a winner. As babies develop their senses, touch lets them understand space and begin to identify objects. It's comforting to them to feel high-quality textiles and textures.
  • Colors add a lot of fun to life at any age. Infants, in particular, are starting to differentiate colors well before they need names for them. Even if you like a modern palette of neutrals, showing your baby contrast lets him or her piece together the elements of playtime. Try a bright green turtle or a snowy white lamb.
  • Rocking is soothing, helps build muscles, burns off all that energy and creates balance. The connection your baby forms with a rocking toy is sweet to watch. Your baby is likely to enjoy holding a toy that moves with him or her.

Getting Creative with Plush

As infant toys become more beautifully made, you can begin to include exceptional plush toys in your nursery. A wide range of animals, both real and conceptual, are now available for play, as are toys that feature iconic themes with creative angles.

  • Check out infant toys in bold colors, like a cheerful reddish-orange fox with simple facial features and a friendly contrast stripe and tipping or the patchwork quilt colors of Lilly Pulitzer toys.
  • Enjoy the craftsmanship of plush animals you don't normally see in toy stores. Have fun with a llama, a hippo, a Mongolian lamb or a fantastical pegasus.
  • Incorporate light to make infant toys even more fun. A light-up walrus features characteristic tusks, but glows to comfort and delight children.
