The popular types of highchair toys

Highchairs are great for putting baby in while they are waiting for their dinner or to give mothers a few moments hands free. To keep your little one amused while they are in their chair, give them something to play with. This article has a look at what type of toys are popular to give to your child when they are in their highchair.

For younger ones

Some highchairs come with baby toys attached to their frame. Shaker toys like keys and animals shapes are often used. Made with hard plastic or chewable rubber, they are easy to wipe clean when the highchair for baby is being cleaned.
Young babies

Younger babies will put their toys in their mouth and if the highchair is used for feeding, this will end in mucky toys. Parents of children at this age choose toys that are easy to clean and will not be destroyed by regular washing. Plastic or cloth baby books are popular as well as plastic building blocks or teething toys. These can withstand chewing as well as regular cleaning. Toys that have attachments to tie them to a highchair or stroller are also ideal. One of the best games for baby is throwing toys off of the highchair tray. Parents combat this with attachable toys that won’t go far.

And for older

Cars made especially for babies are great for whizzing up and down their tray and used with a few blocks can turn into an fun toy obstacle course race. Plastic food toys are also popular. The baby can learn on their vegetables and fruits while playing in the kitchen. For older kids, a popular toy by Leap Frog includes fruit and veg with a scanner. The Count and Scan shopper is for two years upwards, but is a great way of adding counting to food association.
Sound and light toys Musical and light toys can keep baby amused while they are in their high chair. Vtech makes a range of small handheld toys like their Animal Fun Phone and baby Tiny Touch Phone. Vtech is an extremely popular range that combines technology with toy. Their Baby Laptop is great fun and is just the right size to fit on a highchair tray. The screen lights up and different buttons introduce new objects, sounds and shapes.
