Learning can be fun for all ages, whether a child is first learning about shapes and colors or getting ready to start kindergarten. Genius Babies carries educational toys for all ages, from birth to children in preschool. But whether you are looking for a gift for a newborn baby or toys for your own child, Genius Babies has many toys for all stages of development up to five years.
Baby toys for newborns up to six months are soft, brightly colored, and are about sounds and touch. Our store carries unique baby toys and gifts like various soft developmental crib books, playmats, soft blocks, crib mirrors, mobiles with an array of primary colors and shapes, and many toys that produce sounds like soothing music, ocean sounds, jingles, and chimes. Even toys with unique shapes, like the Whoozits, are still soft and can be used to help a baby learn shapes and colors.
Toys for six month olds and up have more shapes and realistic forms than toys for newborns. Instead of various triangles and squares, baby toys in this group include stuffed animals, stacker toys, and puppets by Baby Einstein. Some toy sets, which would be a great gift for a baby who has started to like animal shapes, include groups of animals, like a bird house and circus animals. In terms of sound, we carry activity triangles and boxes, which have a full interactive experience of shapes, colors, and music. In fact, the Mozart Magic Music Cube is one toy that will expose a baby to more complex musical sounds.
Toys are still educational and fun for children around one year. For this age group, we carry many interactive toys like hammers and pegs, trucks, toy drums, musical gears, and animal toy sets that make sounds. To prepare a baby for learning in preschool, we also have toys to introduce your baby to the ABCs and food and animal names. We also carry many toys and gifts for a baby’s first birthday, including personalized baby gifts and unique boy and girl toys. Some include blue and pink bear photo albums or rocking and musical toys, like a rocking horse and musical octopus.
Between eighteen months and three years, toys are about being creative and preparing for preschool and kindergarten. We carry many toys sets, like a pirate ship, tool box, playhouse, and occupation toys like a doctor’s set, that a baby or young child can make up stories and games with. Or, if your child, or a child you know, has taken a liking to Thomas the Train, we also have wooden toy sets in which a child can set up toy train tracks for the trains to run. More educational toys include puzzles and toy sets focused on learning the ABCs and counting up to twenty.
Preschool-age children, from three to five years, need to be prepared for kindergarten. In addition to more complex alphabet and number games, we have beginning spelling and language toys, as well as a cash register and beginning calculator for a child to learn to apply numbers and do math. But, for this age group, we also make unique games that will reinforce what your children are learning in school, like games about traffic and tying your shoes and even outdoor games, like hopscotch.
