Age-by-Age Guide to Finding the Right Toy
Birth– One Year
Yes, right after a baby was born, he or she can already benefit from having toys. The babies are still unable to hold or grasp objects at the first few weeks or months but they already enjoy exploring their surrounding using their sense of sight and hearing. Hence, for babies in this age bracket, it is best to give toys that feature brightly colored, black-and-white- or high contrast features as well as those that make music. Once they are already able to grasp objects, give toys that are safe to be put in their mouth. Remember to avoid toys with ribbons, string or anything that can cause dangerous entanglement. 
One - Two Years
A baby within this age bracket loves toys that allow him or her to make use of her or his newly learned motor skills and those that respond to his or her actions. They are fueled by wonder and curiosity. They will take pleasure to activities such as hitting a ball with a toy hammer. You can possibly give puzzles with as little as 4-5 pieces, rubber ducks for bath time, huge play vehicles, etc. 
Two – Three Years
The toddlers will now take pleasure in playing active games that allow them to jump, climb, and throw. They also now have a good finger and hand coordination and will prefer to use these skills through doping crafts and arts, puppets, completing simple puzzles and blocks. This is also the age when a child start to do pretend play or imaginative play. 
Four- Five Years
For children within this age bracket, give educational and interactive toys. They will also love toys which teach verbal and math skills like mini computers, phonics board. They can now start fantasizing about becoming doctors, police officers, and teachers. Some of the best toys to give them include board games, Barbie or dolls, toy vehicles as well as bicycle, and a little complex puzzle.
