Playmats And Developmental Baby Toys For 3 To 6 Months Old

Playmats and developmental baby toys for 3 to 6 months old create interest, intrigue, and curiosity and give your baby the best start that they can have.

At three months old, your baby has now developed more head control and will enjoy being on their tummy reaching for their chosen baby learning toys.

They will also like touching and feeling the different textures, and playmates with textured toys will fascinate them.

Laying on their back and looking at hanging toys above them will be great fun, as they start to reach out for these toys or move them by kicking them.

These playmats and developmental baby toys will help your babies develop in all areas.

Your baby’s fine motor skills are now growing, and they will be grasping at toys that are placed in their hands, and they will begin to reach for toys that are slightly out of reach.

They will begin using both hands and pass items between both hands, from left to right and back again, examining the foam bricks, softballs, cuddly soft toys, or pram beads that you have given to them.

They will love floor activities, and playmate and developmental baby toys like large bright activity quilts are designed to keep your baby amused and to stimulate their sense of touch, sight, and sound, and often baby learning activity quilts have pictures and musical effects to boot.

Other learning activities for babies are activity centers with suspended toys to reach and handle. These help your baby’s hand to eye coordination, and they will spend a lot of time trying to move around, rolling from front to back, and stretching out after softballs or other moving toys.

Your baby will also love colorful toys with interesting designs and textures to study during quiet play, as well as noisy toys for rattling and banging will have them laughing out too.

But please remember, as your baby is a scientist trying to work out what best use this toy is for them, by using all their senses to check it out, all their toys must be safe for chewing and make sure that the toys are safe for babies by checking the safety label before they play with it.

It’s also worth pointing out that these guidelines for what your baby should and shouldn’t be doing are simply that, guidelines. Babies will develop at their own pace, sometimes they will be streets ahead of their expected development, and at other times they may lag a little behind.

If you baby is not doing some of the things I have suggested, then have a look at these early playmats and developmental baby toys for under 3 months old, or if they have passed through these early stages of movement, and they are appearing to be developing more than ever, holding themselves more and more, you may find that these baby toys for skill building for the 6 to 9 months old helpful.

And if you are at all worried about your baby’s development, either mental or physical, do speak to your doctor or health visitor, that is what they are there for, and more likely than not, there will be nothing to be concerned about.

Pink Pretty in Pink Supreme Play Gym

As playmats and developmental baby toys go, I would put this as a top of my list. It’s good value for money, it’s easy to put up and quick to put away, and the overhead bars have extra links so you can attach your baby’s favorite toys on.

It also plays 8 melodies, has a flower mirror for babies’ self-discovery, a teether, and a rattle! This is not an all singing all dancing playmat, but it is perfect for the first 3 months.

Galt Playtest and Gym

I have mixed reviews on playmats and developmental baby toys that allow you to put an under the 4-month-old baby in a playtest, I feel that it is too large for a young baby and closes off baby’s view of the world around them.

We had two of these bought for our nursery, not many of the babies liked being in them and it wasn’t too long before we had a puncture in one of them. I can see that it could be handy for a couple of months, but I don’t feel its worth all that money.

Baby Einstein Take Along Tunes

This is a great little cause and effect toy. Press a button and it will light up and play a classical melody that will calm and soothe. Light enough for little hands with a bright handle for your baby to hold.

A cheap and cheerful little toy that any parent would be glad to be given for their bundle of joy. Made by the wonderful Baby Einstein Company, you can’t really go wrong with Baby Einstein playmats and developmental baby toys.

Brilliant Basics Baby’s First Blocks

One of those classic toys that have been around forever. It is a basic durable, inexpensive toy that will grow with your baby into lots of fun educational games as they get older.

First, it will be a chewed on the toy, then a carry around everywhere with them toy, next they will start just putting the shapes into the box without the lid on and then, one day, they will actually use the box with the lid on and start to match and sort the different shaped blocks. A classic toy that can last through 3 to 4 years old.

Baby Einstein Bendy Ball

As your baby begins to grasp and hold this is an excellent first baby ball, the design of the ball makes it easy for babies to grasp and hold onto as they begin to move around.

Bright colors and a multi-colored rattle ball inside, this flexible ball adds sound and visual stimulation to this wonderful toy. It will help build on your baby’s fine motor skills and hand to eye coordination.

Fisher-Price Little Superstar Classical Stacker

This is another educational toy that will grow with your child. When your baby is too young to move around, this toy is a wonderful, light changing, music playing toy, and as your child’s fine and gross motor skills develop, they will enjoy knocking down the tower, just to see you build it back up.

As your child gets older and begins to differentiate colors, you can start asking them to bring you different colored stars to help their color recognition.

Fisher-Price Rainforest Jumperoo

Of my recommended playmats and developmental baby toys for this age group, this is one of my favorite. The only thing I don’t like is the price, it’s enough to put many parents off, which is such a shame as your child will love it.

They will be enthralled at their actions making things happen, as the music and lights play while they jump around. An all-round fantastic toy that all children should have and all parents want to have as it keeps your child safe, secure and entertained as you have a well-deserved rest for 10 minutes. A must buy, even with the high price.

Lamaze Play and Grow Jacques the Peacock

I absolutely love Lamaze take-along toys, this one, and My Friend Emily are two of my favorites. Lamaze has wonderful designs with all the take-along toys, each one having an easy link so that you can attach these bright, beautifully designed toys to activity gyms, strollers, car seats, and diaper bags.

This friendly and cute looking bird with his large friendly eyes will help your baby to focus and stare at a single object, which will support healthy eye development. It is also full of textured materials and noises. I love Lamaze products, a great gift to give or be given.

Sassy Developmental Sensory Ball Set

I think Sassy product is great, they are well made, educational and really good value for money. I have come across some similar products to Sassy that is almost double in price!!

This developmental toy has a multi-colored, soft crinkle textured, and an easy to squeeze ball that will help develop babies’ hand-eye coordination, fine motor skills, and when they get older, their large motor skills.

The First Years Stack N Count Cups

You can’t beat the classic nesting cups. These are brightly colored, well made, and inexpensive, (which is always a plus!)

Watch your baby’s joy as they stretch over to knock down your wonderful tower. Babies love any cause and effect toys, as they enjoy seeing the results of their actions. As your baby develops further and builds on their hand-eye coordination and fine motor skills, they will love fitting the cups together and stacking them up and knocking them down too.

Munchkin Mozart Magic Cube

Classical music calms and enriches babies’ brains, which is why there are so many classical music toys and baby activities. This magic Mozart cube includes instrument sounds of the Harp, French horn, Piano, Flute, and Violin.

Lights flash as your baby blends different instruments together by touching the big buttons around the sides of the musical cube, to create a different Mozart musical masterpiece!
