Incorporating play in your baby’s day not only keeps your baby stimulated, but it can foster milestones and abilities to help build these five key skills:

Fine Motor Skills: Hand Movement

This skill is used when small muscles, specifically hands and fingers, pick up objects, hold a spoon, turn pages in a book, or use a crayon to draw.

Gross Motor Skills: Body Movement

This is a child's ability to use large muscles for movement. For example, sitting up, crawling, standing, walking, jumping, and running.

Cognitive Skills: Thinking & logic

Toys and books that encourage cognitive thinking & logic skills can help build on learning, remembering, and problem-solving abilities. Using sensory play is a great way to foster this ability.

Social & emotional skills: Expressions

There are many books and toys that build social and emotional skills to help babies and toddlers express themselves and interact with others. A baby smiling or waving bye-bye are just two examples.

Speech & language skills: Communicating

Books & music are two key ways to build on the ability to communicate & understand. Naming shapes, colours, & the alphabet, are a great place to start.

It’s true, practice makes perfect! So, help your baby put developmental skills into play every day with select toys designed specifically for infants. From 0-3 months, it’s very important to help babies practice fine motor, gross motor, and cognitive skills to help achieve key milestones. See our curated selection of toys to help! Ready? Set. Grow!
