What toys are suitable for a playpen?

In a playpen, you can choose toys that are appropriate for your child's age and stage of development to provide entertainment and promote their development. Here are some suggestions for toys that are suitable for playpens:

Activity Center: An activity center is a multifunctional toy that often features knobs, buttons, music, lights, and rotating parts. They stimulate a child's sensory development, providing visual, auditory and tactile stimulation while exercising their hand-eye coordination.

Stuffed toys: Soft and safe stuffed toys are ideal for playpens. They provide comfort and security while allowing little ones to grab, pat, shake and explore.

Pushable and pullable toys: Choose some toys that children can push or pull, such as pushable cars, pullable dogs, etc. These toys encourage little ones to move around in the playpen and help them develop muscle strength and balance.

Plastic or soft jigsaw puzzles: Choose plastic or soft jigsaw puzzles that are suitable for children’s fingers. These puzzles help little ones develop hand-eye coordination and problem-solving skills.

Stacking and inserting toys: Choose some stacking and inserting toys, such as plastic rings, wooden blocks, or illustration boards. These toys help little ones develop finger dexterity and problem-solving skills.

Touch and explore toys: Choose toys with different textures, shapes, and colors to encourage little ones to touch, explore, and discover new sensory stimulation.

When choosing toys for your playpen, make sure they have no small parts, are made of safe, non-toxic materials, and are appropriate for your baby's age and stage of development.
