The best toys for each age
4 to 6 months: the time for rattles
At around 4 months of age your baby can finally hold an object in his or her hand. Colours, textures and sounds fascinate him: all objects to look at, handle and bite are suitable at this age! He will no doubt enjoy:
- Rattles and other small toys that are easy to catch hold of, that he will be able shake to make them jingle-jangle and that he can put in his mouth. Choose them in varied colours and materials to diversify your baby's experiences and renew his interest: wood, fabric and plush filled with small bells, beads and jingles, etc.
- A string of small toys to attach to his pushchair to distract him during walks.
- A teething ring to bite on if teething begins to bother your baby.
