What toys are recommended for what age?

To the editor:

With Christmas just around the corner, we thought we would list toys that are recommended for children to grow and learn.

Toys for young infants of birth through 6 months, are things they can reach for, hold, suck on, shake and make noise with.

Older infants of 7 to 12 months should have things they can play pretend with, and things to use with large muscles.

Toys for 3- to 6-year-olds are things to solve problems, things to pretend and build, and things to create with.

A website that lists good ideas for toys of all ages is It lists age groups and recommendations for certain types of toys to buy as presents.
