What are the different types of toys from Matoyi?
We understand the need for having varied toys for skill-building and development of children during their initial years. It has been researched that 90% of brain development happens till the age of 5years, and that makes their initial experiences quite pivotal.
Hence we have developed different categories of toys at Matoyi, to be a partner in the beautiful journey of growing up,
Flashcards: To encourage active recall and strengthen neural connections as babies grow. You can check out our flashcards range.
Rattles: To help babies “acknowledge” and “recognize” the sounds, develop baby’s attention. Rattles are babies' first sensory stimulation toys. Our rattle like the Flat disk rattle, also helps to develop fine motor skills. You can check out our rattles here.
Teethers: Teethers are not just to soothe a teething baby, but also to strengthen the mouth and jaw muscles for chewing and babbling. It is important for hand-to-mouth coordination as well. You can check out our cute, pure Neem wood teethers here.
Pull and walk along:
Once your child starts walking, somewhere between 12-18months, your toddler would love to pull toys along as they walk. Their walk will not only become fascinating with our adorable bear pull along and rabbit pulls along, but pulling the toy will also help in their muscle development. Their eyes will have to work in conjunction with the whole body and it is great for their gross motor skills.
