The Best Musical Toys For Babies Under 6 Months

The Best Musical Toys For Babies Under 6 Months

Newborns don’t really need toys. Because they don’t see colors yet during the first few weeks,  what they need are the warmth of your cuddles, the melody of your soft voice, lots of sustenance when needed and your constant loving presence. 

At about 3 months, a few toys may come useful. At this time, provide toys that help in developing fine and gross motor skills as well as for sensory stimulation (although not too much or they might not go to sleep easily!).

Music is one of the things that a baby loves. The right music calms them, invigorates them and develops their senses.

There are many of these baby musical toys. On this list are a selected few which babies love to play with and are highly-rated by parents.

The Best Baby Musical Toys (6 – 12 Months) That Babies Love To Listen To

Music is like a pill to babies. Play a familiar song and you’ll see their faces light up, their bodies sway, their hands clap and often, their mood changes.

Researchers from Mcmaster University have discovered that infants who are exposed to music before they can walk or talk tend to smile more and communicate better. They also have a more sophisticated brain response to music.

Babies under 6 months don’t need a lot of toys. But musical toys for babies are ones of the best you can give. Make them or buy them. Sing to them as often as possible. Expose them to different genres. Give them the gift of music.
