10 Toys that Stimulate Your Child’s Curiosity and Motor Skills
Help your child reach his milestones! Get him moving and exploring with these toys.
CREATED WITH VTECH
Babies grow and learn at an amazing rate so encourage his sensory development and mastery of movement with age-appropriate toys. Babies and toddlers will benefit from those that rouse curiosity and stimulate his gross motor skills (like rolling over and sitting). As they get older, introduce toys that challenge his imagination and hone his fine motor skills (those that make use of fingers and hands).
The following toys aren’t just suitable for one stage of your child’s life—as your child grows, he or she will discover more things about each toy that match his or her growing skill set.
First Steps Baby Walker
This sturdy walker is a great companion for babies who are just learning to get up and go. A step up from the traditional walker, it also features a detachable learning center—introducing numbers, shapes, colors, and more—which babies can use even before they start cruising.
Baby Bear Laptop
6 months-3 years
Encourage both sensory and motor skill development with the roller-ball paw and movable mouse built into this laptop. The peek-a-boo effect ensures endless fun for your little one!
Sort & Discover Drum
6 months-3 years
Aside from developing fine motor skills with the shape sorter, your child can also tap the drum to make fun sounds and sing along to the songs and melodies.
Sort & Learn Car
Encourage learning through this fun toy, which plays music and sound effects whenever shapes are inserted through the windows. The car also plays a catchy learning song when pulled, while the built-in piano keys teach colors and musical notes.
