What types of toys should be chosen in the playpen for babies to play with?

The type of toys in the portable playpen should be chosen to be suitable for babies to play with, which can promote their development and learning. Here are some suggestions for the types of playpen toys that are suitable for babies:

Sensory Stimulating Toys: These toys stimulate baby’s sensory development including touch, hearing, sight and chewing. For example, soft plush toys, toys that make sounds, brightly colored toys, and chew toys are all good choices.

Hand-Eye Coordination Toys: These toys help babies develop hand-eye coordination and fine motor skills. For example, puzzles, insert toys, and stacking toys all allow babies to practice grasping, placing, and manipulating objects.

Educational toys: These toys stimulate babies’ thinking and problem-solving skills. For example, shape sorting toys, puzzle toys, and maze toys allow babies to learn shapes, colors, and spatial relationships.

Musical toys: Music can stimulate baby's auditory development and emotional expression. Choose some simple musical toys, such as music boxes, small pianos and hand bells, to allow babies to enjoy music.

Explorable toys: These toys allow babies to explore and discover new things. For example, activity board books, flip books, and touch books all allow babies to explore different textures and patterns through touch and flipping.

Movement Toys: These toys encourage movement and activity in babies. For example, strollers, slides, and ball toys allow babies to develop their muscles and balance.

Make sure the toys are made of safe, non-toxic materials and contain no harmful substances.
