5 or 6 months old baby has further hand-eye coordination, and can grasp toys under the guidance of line of sight. At this time, the baby's both hands do not coordinate good enough, when he holding a toys in one hands that he does not want, the baby do not knot to pick up the toy he want with the other empty hand.

Four Important Aspects in Choosing Toys for Children

First, Interest

Interest is children's best teacher. No matter how meaningful and refined the design is, if the baby is not interested in the toy, it would be only a decoration. In terms of interest, the toy should be exaggerated in shapes, style and colors, thus the baby will be attracted and learn to identify different colors and shapes in the process of play.

Second, inspire intelligence

In the process of playing, we should also train the baby's skills and develop their intelligence. The educational toys usually have the following three features:

First, the toys have a variety of playing methods. And children are allowed to use their own creativity and imagination to think out more new ways to play. Second, the toy itself can provide the baby with a great imagination and some space to create. Thus the baby's attention will be attracted for a longer time. Third, the toy is best to have some connection with the children's life. When the baby has stronger hands-on ability, you can choose, for example, a doll that can wear and take off clothes, put on hat and pull zippers, buttons, which is better than those toys only have lovely style.

Third, Safety

Good toy must be safe. Whenever you buy toys, the safety of toys is the first thing to consider. Children tend to bite, knock, smell, lick toys, so the toys should have no sharp corners, non-toxic, and environmental, healthy and safe for children to bite.

Fourth, Durability

It is not necessarily a good thing for children to own too many toys. The best is to have a few must-have toys to let children invent various methods to play. If a toy can play by children for a long time, it demands a lot of playing methods and great enough space to create.
