  • Yes, but you can cycle through them – use toys for a couple of weeks, swap them out, and then swap them back a couple of weeks later.

  • It’s good to give a child paper, pencils, materials that they can use to make things and use their imagination.

  • I used to rotate toys and books and even went to the lirlbrary for new ones

  • I pack toys into boxes and rotate them. It’s like a boxful of new toys every time I put a box in front of them

  • My boys were both always quickly bored with toys. As soon as they figured out how it worked they lost interest. I was concerned that it indicated a problem. It turns out that it can be a sign of giftedness or advanced problem solving ability (at least that is what they told me at the time). It has since proven to be true as my eldest has been assessed as gifted in problem solving and logic and my youngest is showing signs of advanced intelligence as well.
    They don’t necessarily need fancy toys, just new and different or things that are a little bit tricky keep them both entertained for longer. Building blocks (duplo, lego etc) and Coloured pasta have been a winner in my house because they can be used in so many different ways (but not till you can stop them from eating them). Putting different things in bottles of water or plastic jars (rice, bells, coloured pasta, flowers, etc) when they are babies and changing them regularly can be an endless source of ‘new’ for them.

  • No, they are happy with the same toys or books.

  • Babies don’t need much in the way of toys. Once they’re a bit older (around 1yr) u could fill empty water bottles with rice to make a shaker etc. this will keep bun happy
