Make a splash with exciting new bath toys
Bathtime is not solely about getting clean. With the right bath toys, children can continue to develop their bodies and minds while they splash and play. Toys that spray water help to develop a child's fine motor skills. The pincer grasp, which is used by squeezing the thumb and forefinger together, is one that is often unused until a child reaches preschool. Give him or her the chance to work on this skill with bathtub writing toys or even the traditional rubber ducky.
A good accompaniment to bath toys is baby rattles. Like bath toys, baby rattles are learning toys that stimulate the child's ability to hear small noises. Also like their squeaky clean counterparts, rattles can double as exciting toys during playtime and soothing toys when a cranky mood strikes. Combine both types of toys to create a customized yet inexpensive gift set to give to new parents. Look for rattles that can get wet to create a piece that serves multiple functions. Both types of toys offer simple additions to other baby gifts as well.
Newborn babies get a lot of attention, and for good reason. Do not forget that the newborn phase is very short. The baby will roll over and sit up within a few short weeks. Babies desire to use their hands to hold toys like building block sets at a very young age. This is why it is sometimes important to find gifts that cater to slightly older babies rather than newborns. Look for bath toys that focus on age 3 months and older.
Sears offers gift sets that include a number of bath toys, but you can also create your own. Fill a shower caddy or even a baby bathtub with your favorite bath toy choices. Add a soft towel and wash cloth as well as a bottle of baby shampoo. A bathtime bundle is not complete without an after-the-bath toy. Look for stuffed animals that a baby can cuddle immediately after the bath is over. Add sleepwear and a CD of soft music, and you have a perfect gift that every new family can use.
Bath toys are versatile in that they offer the perfect gift for a special day or just because. Nearly all children get excited when they have a new bath toy. Parents also love them because they encourage babies to enjoy a daily ritual that is difficult for some children. Sears has all the best bath toys at fantastic everyday prices.
