Toys for children from 0 to 6 months
From birth to six months is very important to facilitate the growth of the baby to stimulate their senses and motor skills. For it,there are many toys, suitable for these small ages, that will transmit to babies new experiences that activate their senses.
At the beginning, babies only capture what they notice in isolation, but when they reach 10 or 12 weeks of age, they can capture images together. For this reason, it is very important to think about toys by ages, which are used to stimulate the child's senses in bright, mobile colors that include sounds, textures and varied shapes. Here are some toys you can buy for your baby:

Benefits of these toys in babies from 0 to 6 months
The use of these toys is intended to favor the different areas of the baby, with the aim of achieving all the essential aspects for maturation.
1. Area of cognition. The objective is to favor the visual exploration of the environment and toys through visual and auditory stimuli.
2. Communication and language area. With toys, the child is expected to start communicating by laughing or gesturing, as if the toy were a person. That shows interest in the toy by reacting to the different visual stimuli, and that little by little it is coordinating the action of looking and listening.
3. Socialization area. Through the child-toy-adult interaction, we seek to favor the following aspects: look at the face of the adult (attention), smile or vocalize in response to the adult's attention, favor the reaction in anticipation of a stimulus and show knowledge of your hands.
