Brio Infant Developmental Toys
As a parent we celebrate every milestone that our children achieve. As we watch them grow we also worry about their development. That is why BRIO has developed toys to help them in the development and stimulate them based on the way they sense the world. I recently had a chance to receive the BRIO Motion Wobbler and BRIO Horse to review. They came at a perfect time because my niece was born just 10 weeks ago and is starting to discover the world around her.
BRIO uses bright and contrasting colors in their toy designs because a baby’s vision is not fully developed at birth. Since babies also have sensitive hearing, the new sounds they hear in their toys can bring many smiles as they discover new things.
The BRIO Motion Wobbler is recommended for ages 6 months and up but my niece loved listening to the clickity-clack sound the yellow piece made as I wobbled it back and forth for her. She focused on the toy as the noise was made and would stare at it when placed on her playmat while doing tummy time. I am sure as soon as she can reach it she will be making a lot of noise on her own.
She is also very nosy when it comes to things moving and loved while I moved the BRIO Horse across the floor in front of her. The horse is recommended for ages 12 months and up and comes with a pull string so when they start walking they can pull it behind them. It also has simple, bright colors that make it a fun toy without being overstimulating.
The BRIO Horse and Motion Wobble are made of high quality material that will stand up to many years of play. BRIO designs their toys to grow up with the child, so they can get a lot of playtime without having to leave their favorite toys behind as they grow. With a long-standing reputation for high quality toys, BRIO focuses on how their toys can help children reach their developmental milestones through play. I can’t wait to watch my niece engage with both of these toys as she gets older.
Brio has been making toys since 1884. It can take anywhere from 6 – 18 months for a toy to go from a design to a final prototype ready for production. When designing new toys there are four area that they make sure all their toys comply with. Are the toys safe to play with, do they comply with BRIO’s high quality standards, are they intuitively easy for the child to understand , and do they help the child grow through play. They also think about how they toy can grow with the child and not just be used for a specific time in the child’s growth. BRIO also has a long history of being active in toy safety regulations.
