How to choose a musical baby toy?

Remember that a musical toy remains above all a toy, with all the constraints that this implies in terms of safety standards. Even if the manufacturers strive to make their sounds as close as possible to a real musical instrument, your music lover’s ears may sometimes bleed. The correctness of the notes should therefore not be your first criterion of choice. Focus on these instead:

1 | The type of musical instrument

Imitation in miniature or in the form of a table or activity trolley, find all the musical instruments among the musical toys for babies and children:

  • xylophone,
  • guitar,
  • piano,
  • drum,
  • Tam Tam,
  • tambourine,
  • maracas,
  • castanets,
  • cymbal,
  • rain stick,
  • etc

2 | The age of the budding musician

As with any toy, check carefully what age it is intended for. Some musical toys are accessible to listening from birth, such as the rain stick, for example. Others can only be offered from 6 months, when the baby’s hands are able to hold objects, such as maracas. Finally, instruments that require good coordination of movements should be introduced to children from 3 or 5 years old, depending on the toy.

3 | The material of the awakening musical toy

The baby musical toys selected here are:

  • either in wood, mostly FSC®-labelled, i.e. wood from eco-managed forests;
  • either in plastic, solid and colored;
  • either in wood and plastic when necessary.

4 | Operation, manual or battery operated

Many musical toys for children have manual operation, allowing, among other things, the development of fine motor skills. To emit sounds, all you have to do is shake them, press or tap them, with or without a wand, turn them, rub them, pinch them, etc.

Many musical instruments or musical awakening tables require batteries to operate. Check if these are supplied with the device or if you need to stock up before offering the toy to your little one.
