Showering your child with toys might seem like a great way to show you love them, but for your baby, the more the merrier doesn’t necessarily apply. Though babies are easily stimulated by anything they get their hands on, they usually find themselves clinging to an average of only 3 out of the 20 toys that they have.
It’s hard to tell what toy they’ll enjoy, so save yourself a pretty penny by being smart about the baby toys you buy:
1. Don’t Go Branded – Fisher-Price and Little Tikes may be household names when it comes to baby toys, but spending the extra dollar on a brand might be all in vain if your baby doesn’t end up liking it.
2. Observe What Your Kid Likes – See what toys your baby enjoys when he or she is at a friend’s house or at daycare. If you find out that they’ve been playing with the same toy over and over again, it might be a sign that you’ve found the perfect toy for them.
3. Buy secondhand – A good toy is a good toy, and as long as it isn’t broken or harmful, you can always find yourself a deal on Ebay or at a local garage sale. Always research on the toy you’re buying. Make sure to inspect it thoroughly before paying for it and handing it to your child.…
