Between her birth and her first two candles, your baby has the soul of an explorer. The musical toys accompany him intelligently in his discoveries.

For infants: musical awakening

  • When you return from maternity, it is important to put in place a sound environment that soothes the newborn. A music box, a musical night light or a mobile that plays a lullaby can make it easier to fall asleep.
  • Until 6 months old, your baby is still not really interested in toys. Except if they produce a sound or repetitive movements. One and the other stimulate it. He listens to them and watches them.
  • From 3 to 4 months, you can give him a rattle or soft toys that make a noise when he catches them. For bathing, choose toys that float and allow you to press keys to produce musical notes. Some have suction cups that make them easy to attach if your child is struggling to catch them.

For babies from 6 months to 1 year

  • Starting at 6 months, your child's ability to move increases. It's time to give him a waking mat on which he can crawl or move on all fours. Some parts produce sounds. Have fun identifying together what is this sound: does it come from a musical instrument, an animal or objects like the phone or the car?
  • You can offer him pictures of sound images and small musical instruments easy to grip like maracas or rattles. Be sure to raise the sound level so that your ears do not suffer. Play with him the game of silence, teach him the meaning of "hush" with the finger on the lips. Encourage him to differentiate between musicality and sound.

1 year to 2 years

  • At this age, your child starts walking. Catching objects has no secrets for him. The sound emitted by the musical toy helps to encourage it in its development. Gratifying, it is issued when the child succeeds in an action. Thus, the trotter helps him to control his motor skills and allows him to simultaneously press keys that make noise. He learns to coordinate his actions.
  • You can give him rubber animals that sound fun when he presses them and boxes that sound different when he opens them and closes them.
  • It is possible to introduce miniature musical instruments such as drum or xylophone. Your baby is standing and with his hands he can start playing music himself. It's also the perfect time to learn together pretty nursery rhymes. Finally, you can listen to cheerful and catchy music to encourage him to dance with you.
