As Millenial parents we are constantly hearing about child development. In today’s world, it seems we are focusing on child development a lot earlier than our parents’ generation. My daughter started playing with my iPad when she was about 8 months and by the time she was a year old she could navigate through Youtube. Whilst Youtube navigation at such an early age seems quite advanced, there is so much more to a child’s development that parents can play a role in.
We stumbled across an amazing baby toy brand called Little Tikes that has toys designed to boost your baby’s development. I remember when my daughter turned 8 months old I struggled to find toys that would stimulate her. Walking through Toyzone can be quite daunting because there are far too many toys to pick from and many of the toys we buy just contribute to clutter.
Little Tikes toys are designed into 3 developmental segments: to soothe, stimulate and strengthen from as early as the first six months of their lives.
Playtime is such good bonding for you and your child. Whilst social skills are a big result of playtime, development is equally as important. Little Tikes’ toys were designed in partnership with child development experts so you can rest assured that some research has been applied into their design.
If you are thinking of a baby shower gift or some new toys for baby that will actually go further than just fun try out Little Tikes. For playtime ideas that will encourage toddler development read our post here.
