Finding The Right Toys For Your 7-12 Month Old Baby
Between ages 7-12 months, babies are beginning to sit, crawl, pull to a stand, walk holding onto furniture, and even walk alone. They are interested in moving about and practicing their new motor skills. They are increasingly able to grasp with the thumb and finger and are beginning to hold small objects with one hand and explore them with the other. Babies 7-9 months old are fascinated by cause and effect and enjoy banging, poking, twisting, squeezing, dropping, shaking, biting, throwing, opening, closing, pulling, and pushing. By 10-12 months, many babies begin stacking, filling and emptying things, turning things, pushing balls and cars, pressing levers, and dragging around objects.
From a safety perspective, be sure that all toys for this age group are safe for mouthing with no small parts that can get lodged in the throat, ears, or nose. Toys for 7-12 month old babies should always be made of non-toxic materials with no sharp points or edges or brittle plastic. There should be no long strings that could be a strangulation hazard.
Appropriate toys for this age group include simple push toys, soft and wooden blocks, clutching toys, rattles, soft dolls, stuffed animals, towel dolls, cloth baby toys, simple stacking toys, mirror toys, hand puppets (for adults), and activity boxes and cubes.
