Overview

The first year of a baby’s life is an important one. During this time, an infant starts developing fine motor skills and begins to learn to communicate, among other things. But infants also want to be entertained. Luckily, toy manufacturers work hard to develop toys that will not only engage young minds but also help with that development.

But a baby’s needs can vary from one month to another during infancy. Many toys are designed for children who are much older, so it’s important to rule those out. You’ll also find some toys that are labeled for children 6 months and up need parental supervision for infants under a year old. You know better than toy manufacturers what’s best for your own infant, so it’s important to trust your own judgment over what’s printed on the packaging.

When shopping for toys for your infant boys, here are some general guidelines to help you with those age differences:

  • 0 to 3 months—At this age, babies are still learning to move their arms and legs. If you hand your infant a toy at this age, chances are your baby will be able to grab it but not hold it for long periods of time.
  • 4 to 6 months—A baby’s grasping ability tends to become a little more advanced in this stage. Simple, colorful toys are popular at this age, particularly those that make noises.
  • 7 to 9 months—Infants can not only grasp longer at this age, but they can also often transfer objects from one hand to another. This is a great age for babies to begin learning cause and effect. Toys that give a response when a button is pushed or a dial is turned can be big hits.
  • 10 to 12 months—Infants at this age play more independently. Toys that let them safely bang items or move items from one place to another can help them get more comfortable with their developing motor skills.
