Toys for Boys: Ages 0-3 months
What Does A 0-3 Month Old Play With?
Trying to find the perfect gift for a baby boy who is 0-3 months can be a challenging task. After all, you have to make sure that there are no small parts that can come off and get choked on. The best toys for a 0-3 months old baby boy are those which are going to promote hand-eye coordination and sensory stimulation,
Hand-eye coordination is one of the very first skills that your baby will start working on. He or she will try to reach for objects and grab them. Toys that can promote this skill are best for young babies. Toys like this teach babies to reach and explore the world around them. There are many toys out there that will promote such a skill. Just make sure that all toys are age appropriate.

A baby will only be able to explore the world around him or her with the help of sensory stimulation. This is anything that will stimulate the five senses. It is well known that babies explore objects through using their mouth, they can also touch, see, hear, and smell things that are around them. The more sensory stimulation that a baby has, the more aware of his or her environment he or she will be. It is important to note that babies can become over-stimulated as well. Toys that promote sensory stimulation should do so simply and not overwhelm the infant. If the toy is too loud, bright, or obnoxious for you, imagine what that will do to a 0-3 month old baby.
