Baby Toys: balls

A wide choice of baby playthings from soft balls for rolling games, to gadgets that make sounds and encourage first discoveries, not to mention giving them plenty of exercise.

For rolling, playing, first handling skills and other exploration, balls for babies come in a variety of forms. From soft fabric balls to durable plastic models these are great for baby development milestones.

When your baby first sits up (this tends to happen anytime from around 7 to 9 months) he might not be able to control rolling a ball, but this ability may well develop before his first birthday, and in the meantime, a gentle movement initiated by you will fascinate him.
