I can’t even begin to tell you how many times in the last 18 months I have spent searching for the best baby toys by age. My friends can attest to this as I am constantly asking them what toys I should buy Michael next. To be honest, I am horrible at things like this. Not to mention, walking into a toy store is probably one of my least favorite things to do. Am I the only one who feels SO overwhelmed in those places? There have been so many times where I think I found a good toy for him and he ends up being completely unimpressed. Finding the perfect combination of an engaging and educational toy can be quite the task.
Baby Toys By Age
I was absolutely ecstatic to find Educents, a marketplace for educational children’s products. Educents brings tons of retailers together all in one place to keep your kids excited and engaged. Whether I am shopping for Michael or for someone’s birthday party, Educents makes things simple by breaking their products down kid and baby toys by age or grade. Talk about a mom life win. I feel SO much more confident when I am trying to find the perfect toys now.
When searching for toys on Educents, all you have to do is select the age or grade and start browsing. As I was filtering through the toys in Michael’s age range, I came across this balance bike. He will be able to use it in a couple months, but as you can see he is just a little excited about it. I really love browsing around the site to see what types of toys they recommend to help your child excel in their learning.
Finding the Right Products
We went ahead and assembled it even though he clearly has a couple months before we will start using it. Here’s what convinced me to order it: “[Child] will develop an early sense of balance and control, along with independence, self-confidence and happiness – all without any need for stabilisers.”
Personally, I have found that buying toys a few months ahead of schedule works for us. I buy a few things here or there, and then when he seems like he is starting to get bored I will bring out something new and engaging.
He hopped right on as if someone had already taught him how to ride a bike! I actually didn’t know what a balance bike was, so if you’re wondering Balance bikes have no pedals or stabilisers. They are much lighter than pedal bikes. On balance bikes, children use their feet to balance and propel themselves along. Children as young as 2 learn to balance on their own without explanation, coaching or unnecessary stress.
I can’t wait until his cute little feet touch the ground and he is able to start playing with this! There is nothing quite like seeing your child’s face light up with excitement. Next time you are shopping for a birthday present or trying to find the best baby toys by age, put your mind at ease by shopping on Educents.
