Best Toys for Baby


In recent years, toys have gone high-tech! But a new study shows all those automated,
interactive, and electronically-enhanced gadgets may not be as good for your baby’s development
as the old-fashioned ones. Scientists examined parents and their two-year-olds
as they played with either a traditional shape sorter toy or one that was enhanced with sounds,
songs, and voices. They found parents used higher quality language and more spatial words,
like “triangle” or “over,” when they played with traditional toys compared to electronic
toys. The parents who used electronic toys repeated
the same phrases over and over, such as “push the button” and relied more on the toy to
talk to their child. This study suggests non-electronic toys may
be the better bet for babies.
