The right toys for all ages

Toys for infants and children form an intrinsic building block in the education of children and play a special role in every child’s life. The child gets to know about his environment by playing with them, also gets some experience and gains an understanding of the first rules and relationships. When a toddler slowly gets used to the new environment and is mainly dependent on the affection and contact of his parents, the first toddler toy activates his senses and enhances his vision, feelings, grasping and hearing power. Soft cuddly toys and teddy bears, as well as colorful play-trainers and playing mats are popular products in this section. The manufacturers provide the age indications on the packaging itself, which helps the parents select a suitable toy for their infants. This is also helpful when the child gets older and the his abilities and needs change: From the first year onwards, the focus is mainly on grasping and moving things, children from two years of age are physically very agile and curious about everyday activities. From four years onwards, children have a lot of imagination and can concentrate for longer periods of time and are usually engrossed in their own world of games. As each child also exhibits special skills and talents, parents can cater to these with appropriate toys: From the first musical instrument to sports accessories or learning and magic kits to toys on various subjects. In addition to the toys suitable for each development phase, there are also toys for various occasions such as travels, going to the restaurant or playing outdoors.

Natural and high quality toys for young and old

Keeping the health of the child in mind, the main focus should be on the quality of workmanship and use of good quality materials when selecting any toy.
