During the baby's first year of life, toys provided to the baby can encourage the baby to explore his senses and help him develop his motor skills.

Toys also encourage young children to learn how to simulate playing, such as pink wooden kitchen, wooden doctor play set, cash register, clothing, etc., all of which help to encourage children's creative thinking and emotional development.
