Colorful and fun grasping toys are ideal for baby beginning at about 3 months of age. At approximately 3-4 months of age, baby will begin grabbing for her toys and purposefully bring them toward her mouth. This will help in her development of motor skills and hand-eye coordination. From 8 months on you can place grasping toys in front of her to help encourage crawling to the toy. At this age she will also try to pass the toy from one hand to the other or play a game of dropping the toy to the ground.
