Babies also need to have their five senses stimulated so that their brain can develop. Some play mats have electronic devices that teach babies words and songs. Ideal if you're looking for a toy that can stimulate your baby's senses and teach your baby new words.
We recommend the Fisher Price Rainforest Melodies and Lights Deluxe Gym. This playmat stimulates your baby with music, lights, nature sounds, games, etc. It also includes a spinner with rattling beads and a shiny mirror (good for your baby's hearing and vision).
Jumperoos are usually designed to be very safe to babies. Despite the intensity of the activity involved, parents can have peace of mind that their baby is safe. We recommend the Baby Einstein Jumperoo. It has many height adjustments and contains many toys to stimulate your baby's senses (e.g. baby proof mirror). It also features electronic devices such as piano keys that your baby can play with.
Some of these toys will form an animal shape when stacked correctly. Some even contain electronic devices that produce a light or sound when your baby stacks the rings correctly. We recommend the Tiny Love Musical Stack and Ball Game. It can teach your baby the concepts of size, height, depth, sequence and colour and can stimulate your baby's senses as it integrates lights, sounds and textures.
There is a whole range of educational electronic toys that can help you baby expand his or her vocabulary, learn about numbers, colors, shapes and opposites. For example, the Leapfrog Electronic Toy Book (a toy in the shape of a book containing large buttons) can produce sounds such as letters, words, phrases and numbers.
Babies can usually tap and pound on the toy and hear sounds and see lights of different colors (which also helps them learn about colors). We highly recommend the Leapfrog electronic book toys. They are great infant learning toys and they are usually very well-designed and help babies explore words and their meaning.
