When looking to select baby gifts, it is easy to get carried away by the huge number of cute little outfits and even larger number of cuddly toys that are available to buy for newborn babies today. New mums and dads are often inundated with these items which, although lovely to give and receive, offer limited or no use to the new arrival. If you choose to give a gift that is both fun and practical, it will be able to be enjoyed by baby for much longer and it will also be appreciated by the newborn’s parents. One such example of great baby gifts at Gifts Australia is baby bath toys. Let us explain why:
Baby’s bathtime is a very special time for new parents where they get to spend some quality one-to-one time with their new bundle of joy. This daily ritual that often takes place toward the end of a busy day, is a chance to unwind and relax, and often involves songs or stories designed to get the new baby to adjust from daytime to bedtime. As babies become more aware of their surroundings, playtime in the bath becomes a great way to encourage them to develop new skills without them even being aware of it. Grabbing toys or reaching for bubbles promotes motor skills, and they can learn to distinguish different colours, sounds, and textures.
As babies grow into toddlers, playing with bathtime toys can assist them in developing literacy and numeracy too, as well as helping to distinguish differences by sorting toys into shapes or sizes. Their active minds will soon be making up stories about their bathtime companions and if the bath toy squirts water or makes sounds, so much the better! (sorry mum!) So choosing bath time toys as baby gifts is a great idea, and luckily Gifts Australia has some wonderful bath toys available. One very Important thing to consider when buying anything for babies is safety, so please don’t be tempted to buy cheap products from unrecognized brands, as these may contain toxic materials or small parts that can be dangerous to babies and small children. All the baby gifts at Gifts Australia are carefully chosen with little people’s safety in mind.

It is never too early to get kids interested in nature and wildlife, and you can certainly start them at a young age with this great Bugs in the Tub Toy Set! Aimed at babies and toddlers from age two, this set from Alex Toys comprises three cute “bugs” (one of them is actually a snail, but we’ll let that pass) and a colourful little net to catch them in as they float around in the bathtub. The net has a handle that is specially designed to be gripped easily by little hands, and the bright colours will make the bugs easy to see once they have been released amongst the water and bubble bath foam.

Another great bath toy from the Alex Rub-a-Dub range, these three cute little pooches are covered in “dirt” that will magically disappear as they are washed in the bath.
