Why a Wooden Baby Play Gym is beneficial for so many aspects of early years development
The idea of providing your baby with a Baby Play Gym to explore the world is a tried and tested method of enabling them to develop a number of core skills.
Perfect from around 6 to 8 weeks (or whenever your child is ready to be somewhere other than swaddled or held) to help babies explore their abilities and discover their limitations in an indoor safe environment, the benefits of our Wooden Baby Play Gym span across several areas.
Ideal as a complement to tummy time and all manner of other sensory and physical development activities.
Gross motor, hand-eye coordination and physical development
The most obvious is the physical aspect of play possible using a baby play gym.
By laying back and looking at and reaching for the objects above them you help activate the visual and gross motor skills.
This encouragement to grip, grasp, roll over and look in different directions is essential to developing the first neural networks required for building on later in early development stages.
In addition to simple gripping and clambering, another opportunity is playing with sensory objects.
Dangling coloured scarves, fairy lights or interesting shapes and patterns helps to stimulate visual and touch reflexes and helps you as a parent bond with your child and explore their instinctive likes and dislikes.
Boost cognitive development
Vital to early development, you can use our Wooden Baby Play Gym to feed your babies inbuilt curiosity to explore primitive cause and effect and also develop their understanding of different colours, shapes and patterns.
They also provide a focal space to build on early vocal development and sounds.
Encourages Freedom of Movement
Not just great for play directly with parents or caregivers, the wooden baby play gym can also help to encourage your child’s desire to explore the world on their own. Once familiar with the objects around them, they instinctively look to see how they interact with each other and how they feel on their skin or in their mouths.
