Tips for creating nursery that is visually stimulating

# Colorful kids spaces don’t only look great, but can assist in learning and behavior, too.

Color is one of the most noticeable attributes of the world around us. For babies and small children, understanding color is an essential building block they will use for learning in all areas of their life. So when it comes to designing kids’ spaces, color is one of the most important elements to consider.

Can colors in nursery stimulate baby’s brain? And the researches show the answer to be “YES”.

Finding out you’re going to have a little girl or boy is an exciting moment that may send you rushing to the hardware store to select a paint color for the nursery.

Creating Nursery

If you’re like many soon-to-be parents, your baby room fantasies are tinted in shades of light pink or baby blue. But experts say it may not be wise to go color crazy during a baby’s first months.

Tips for creating nursery which help baby's brain.

Best color for the nursery of a newborn could be shades of black and white.

Shades of black and white send the strongest signals to a baby’s brain. This can help stimulate brain growth and aid in visual development.  

When colors can be introduced in nursery

After three months

  • After three months, babies begin to see colors. Try to add some color to your monochrome nursery, to keep a baby’s brain stimulated and growing.
  • You don’t have to change the color of all the walls, just introducing simple art, furniture, toys, and even books can be a means of incorporating color.  

After twelve months

  • When your baby reaches the 12-month milestone, even more colors can be brought in. Colorful cushions, curtains, or wall prints may be helpful as babies grow and learn to differentiate between colors.
  • For adding colors to babies room you don’t have to spend money. Use their toys, accessories and other colorful articles to splash some colors in room.

Newborn’s vision is black and white.

Did you know that newborn’s vision is just black and white until about 3 months of age? Let’s see why providing high contrast monochrome toys is beneficial for babies.

Newborn’s vision is just black and white.

Newborn’s vision

According to studies babies are born accustomed to living in a dark and muted environment. Up until about three to six months of age they can only see between 10-15 inches in front of them. And they can only really see in black, white and grey tones. This is why finding toys and decor in high contrast black and white can be extremely beneficial for your child’s development.


It should not be confusing. Newborns can see from birth, just not as clearly as an older child or adult. Until your child is about six months of age, he will respond best to bold, contrasting colors and graphics.

It’s important to provide your baby with toys that feature the visual extremes of black, white and red at times. 

High-contrast colors will captivate and hold the baby’s attention.

It helps in encouraging visual development as well as physical activity – like wiggling, kicking, and arm waving.
But surprisingly, for no reasons there has been a major move in the infant toy industry away from production of black, white and red toys. They have elected to choose bright modern colors. But still there are some companies who are filling this gap.

How to stimulate your newborn’s vision and cognitive abilities?

Stimulating your baby’s vision and helping them determine shapes and colors is important for strengthening their cognitive abilities. It is also helpful in improving their gross motor skills. Because high contrast images are easier for babies to interpret. They are the best way for your child to lengthen their attention span, improve his or her memory and develop their nervous system. It is also beneficial in terms of social development. Being able to describe something allows your child to expand their vocabulary and boost their confidence.

Planning baby nursery! When colors should be introduced to a newborn?

There is a lot of freedom in working with black and white toys and decor for your newborn. You can add pops of color later on that align with your little one’s interests. Black and white is also gender neutral, timeless and educational meaning you’ll get multiple uses for multiple children.

Before having my son, I was determined!

Before having my son, I was determined to have a clean, tidy and organised living room 24×7 unlike the ones I had seen, taken over by toys.

But like all the other things I said, I would never do, it was difficult to avoid, once I was a parent. And I am thankful to God for having such a loving and caring family members. My children have always got all their best toys as gifts.

I have always tried to curtail their collection of toys. As a toddler, he had spent most of his time at home, playing with mixing bowl and measuring cups.

Before having my son, I was determined to have a clean living room 24×7.

As I watched him enjoying and playing with gift boxes and wrappings while ignoring the toys inside, I became curious about how many toys kids actually need. So I decided to do some research. Thanks to Google, I got answers to all my questions. 

As a mother, I am putting down all my finding related to toys, parenting, food and everything that a parent need to this blog. This will satisfy your curiosity and save your time.

A Happy childhood is the most precious gift we can give to our child.

Safe toys? Points to keep in mind while buying toys.

Safe toys? Safety points to keep in mind while buying toys for your kids. When we buy toys for our kids we keep many things in mind. It can be about the purpose, occasion and need etc. We should also be careful about the safety issues associated with any toy.

When we are shopping for a toy for our kids, we should keep in mind that unsafe toys or unsuitable toys often have the following characteristics:

  1. Do not meet basic safety checks (toys should not chip or emit colors) and do not indicate “suitable for children.” Toy safety issues, safe toys are very important part in selection.
  2. Toys Promote violence, the practice of unhealthy habits, and discrimination on basis of race, culture, gender, etc.
  3. Avoid flying toys and projectile-firing toys
  4. Are inadequate for the intended child and do not respond to their interests, age or tastes
  5. Avoid toys with sharp or rigid points.

Safe toys? Points to keep in mind while shopping for a toy for our kids ( shopping for toys) :

  • Safety first, always.
  • Don’t stress out too much about the educational value of toys for babies and toddlers because all of life is new and educational for the very young.
  • Bright colors and shapes…no small pieces.
  • Easy for little hands to grip or hang onto.
  • Things that encourage movement, crawling, walking, etc.
  • Things that make gentle, musical sounds.
  • A variety of ‘feels’ from soft to hard to cushy to stretchy.
  • And, finally, books, books, books.  It’s never too soon.

As parents, it is important to keep a few things in mind before purchasing toys for toddlers and infants:

  • Safety-Plastic toys mostly have sharp edges which can hurt children. It can be hazardous for them and can be injurious in sensitive parts like eyes. It is always advised to buy wooden material toys. They have curved edges which do not hurt children and even if swallowed will not cause any harm to children.
  • Simple Toys- In this era of digitization, toys are getting more complex and confusing day by day. The golden rule for children is the simpler the toy is, they are more likely to enjoy it. Complex toys can potentially confuse children with too many inputs. So simple, yet challenging is the mantra.
  • Value For Money- With prices for toys going up because of the associated brand value, it is good to see if the toy is really worth the money paid in terms of entertainment and learning for the child.

Keep your kid’s interests in mind, while encouraging him to expand his horizons. Kids learn through play. It’s through play that they’ll develop motor skills, social skills, literacy and math comprehension. You really can’t go wrong, no matter what you choose.

Part 3 of 3, Points to keep in mind while taking the final decision at the store.

Here we can list the things to keep in mind before paying the bill. As parents, please check:

  • Will this toy help my toddler grow intelligently? I know many parents selecting useful puzzle games, board games like chess, English learner laptop, robot games to help their toddlers grow intelligently.Guiding Puzzle Games :Example: Abacus, Maze Chase, Size Exploration Board & Shape Sorter – This interesting indoor game, help kids use their abilities & get the right shape & order for the toys.
  • Will this toy be serving the purpose or help in the present interests of my child? Parents choose infant and toddler toys based on educational value, child’s interest and also if the toy has an off switch. Educational value will be different for each child. I want to stress that this does not mean academic learning. If a child shows an interest in cooking then a play kitchen would be a good option. If the child is learning to walk then a toy they can push or stand at would be an option.
  • Does the toy serve multiple option?. Try to pick toys that allow for multiple options. A walking toy that has shaped blocks, or a kitchen that has a clock/timer so they start to understand the concept of time.
  • Is the toy safe for the intended child?

Buying specific toys for kids depends on kids interest & toy advantage to the kid growing age. As a parent I would have always decided to buy educational toys & games for my kids which can enhance their learning skills & motivate them to get social as well.Hope these points are of some use to you. Please mention in comments box, if you have any other mindset for buying toys.

Why buy toys* for children? Part 2 of 3.

Toys*! Why do we buy toys* for our children? Part 2 of 3. (how do you decide what toys to purchase for your infants and toddlers?)

Why do we buy toys* for our children?As parents, practically, you don’t need a reason to buy a toy. But is it the correct way? 

Please also read Do children need a room full of toys? Rethink.

Part 2 of 3

Why do we buy toys for our children?
Here we can list the mindset while buying the toys. As parents, while purchasing toys, these things are to be kept in mind:

Here we can list the mindset of parents, while purchasing toy or games:

  • Purpose: While purchasing or choosing from a collection of toys*, one should always remember the difference between a toy with no objective and a toy serving an objective. An objective oriented toy will stimulate the senses in a child, giving a chance to explore things around. Example: if your child likes cars or teddy bear, making a collection of the same will not stimulate the senses in the child.

  • Value for Money: With prices for many toys being high because of an associated “brand” value, it is wise to see if the toy really is worth the money paid in terms of entertainment or learning for the child. Check if the toy is relevant for an age as well as cultural perspective. Example: the same kind of board games are offered by many companies. If the packaging or the brand name is making the difference in price, please choose wisely.

  • Simple Toys: In the era of digitization, toys are getting more confusing and complex day by day. The golden rule for young children – the simpler it is, the more likely that they will enjoy it. Complex toys could potentially confuse the child by giving too many inputs simultaneously. So, keep it simple yet challenging.

  • Appeal: Fancy super colorful and filled with imagery could hit the eyes initially, but children are likely to just ignore all this after a couple of times of playing with it. Example: Kinder joy, children buy this chocolate for the excitement of getting the tiny attractions in the package, they play with it, for some time. Then it goes to some corner of the toy box. What will excite them, is the challenge. Classic examples are tops like bey-blades & fidget spinners. This catches the fancy of all older children, because they enjoy the challenges that these toys pose. For the younger children, wooden blocks/toys score really high on this factor of appeal.

  • Age Appropriate: Many a time when the toy is bought, it has all the features that an individual is looking for, but somehow it has not taken the child’s fancy fully. Usually the reason for this is that it may not be age appropriate. In the initial years, every phase for a child is critical, and every age group has some milestones to be fulfilled. So if the toy bought for the child is not appropriate to his or her age, he or she will either: (a) get bored fast if the toy is below their age, or (b) they may get irritated if the toy’s complexity is too much for them to handle. It is always wise to match children’s age to the appropriate toys to make their time joyful and interesting.

  • Safety: For obvious reasons safety is the greatest concern. Sometimes a child puts a toy in his or her month to explore and understand more about it. Unaware of any dangers due to sharp corners, the paint used on the toy, they choose to experiment with the toy. Keeping all this in mind it is necessary to look for preferably CE certified ones or the ones you have checked and assured keeping all the above points in mind.

  • Battery Operated Toys: Battery operated toys are made up of typically metal or plastic. These will obviously need periodic battery replacing. This is not environmentally friendly both in terms of the battery as well as the outer metal/ plastic case. Battery operated toys* also tend to take away the manual element in toys which young children need. Pressing buttons to move cars is less preferable to moving the car around manually. They also need a constant supply of batteries to work. 

  • Discovery and Exploration: While purchasing a toy, ensure it provides ample opportunities to explore and discover. When children start to discover different ways of playing with the toy, then they learn a lot while playing.

Buying specific toys for kids depends on kids interest & toy advantage to the kid growing age.

As a parent I would have always decided to buy educational toys & games for my kids which can enhance their learning skills & motivate them to get social as well.

खिलौना/खिलौने क्यों महत्वपूर्ण हैं?

खिलौना/खिलौने, खेल और पहेली में कई प्रकार की सामग्री शामिल होती है, जिससे बच्चे खोज सकते हैं, एक साथ रख सकते हैं, खींच सकते हैं और धक्का दे सकते हैं, जोड़ और बना सकते हैं – कभी-कभी लंबे समय तक वो एक ही तरह के खिलौने से अलग अलग तरह का खेल खेल लेते हैं।

To read in English: Why toys, games and puzzles are important?

उपयुक्त खिलौने बच्चों को नए कौशल का अभ्यास करने का अवसर देते हैं जैसे कि छोटे छेद में मोती डालना, रंग भरना, चित्र बनाना ये सब नए कौशल विकसित करने में मदद करते हैं।

 खिलौने परिवार में बच्चे की देखभाल की एक बुनियादी आवश्यकता है।

एक अच्छा खिलौना वह है जिसे एक से अधिक तरीकों से इस्तेमाल किया जा सकता है।

वास्तव में जितनी ज्यादा तरह से ऐसे खिलौनों का उपयोग किया जा सकता है, वे अधिक समय तक एक बच्चे के लिए रुचिकर होंगे।

और आपके निवेश का अधिक मूल्य देंगे। यही कारण है कि ब्लॉक वाले खिलौने, रंगीन पैटर्न ब्लॉक, गुड़िया घर और लोगों या जानवरों के सेट इतने लोकप्रिय हैं।

एक अच्छा खिलौना बच्चों द्वारा विकास के विभिन्न चरणों में उपयोग किया जा सकता है। बच्चे उन्हें विभिन्न तरीकों से उपयोग कर सकते हैं।

उदाहरण के लिए, 1 साल की उम्र और 4 साल के बच्चे दोनों नेस्टिंग ट्यूब का आनंद लेते हैं।

1 साल की उम्र में आम तौर पर इन खिलौनों को अपने मुंह में डालते हैं, उन्हें देखे रहते हैं,  छोड़ देते हैं देखने कि क्या होता है, या बस उन्हें कंटेनर में डुबो देते हैं।

4 साल की उम्र में बच्चे nesting tube को एक साथ फिट करेंगे, उनके साथ विस्तृत डिजाइन और संरचनाएं बनाएंगे या प्रत्येक टुकड़े से रंग का नाम सीखेंगे।

खिलौनों का उपयोग करके सीखे जाने वाले कई कौशल बाद में स्कूली शिक्षा के लिए तैयार करने में मदद करते हैं।

उदाहरण:जब बच्चे खिलौनों के साथ खेलते हैं तो वे गणित, पैटर्न और दिशा के बारे में सीखते हैं।

यहां कुछ तरीके दिए गए हैं जिनसे बच्चे खिलौने के साथ खेलकर बड़े होंगे और विकसित होंगे।

खिलौना/खिलौने बच्चों में सोचने का कौशल विकसित करते हैं:

  • एक खिलौने का पता लगाने के लिए उनकी संवेदनाओं का उपयोग करना (प्लास्टिक पर अंगूठी चलाना)
  • आकार में रंगों की पहचान करना (रंग खिलौनों के साथ खेलना या geometric आकृतियों की तरह खेल का उपयोग करना)
  • निर्देशन सीखना (पहेली के  टुकड़े जोड़ना ताकि वे एक साथ फिट हों)
  • आकार के आकार या कार्य के अनुसार वस्तुओं को वर्गीकृत करना (बटन बॉक्स के साथ खेलना और बॉक्स में बटन गिराना)
  • रचनात्मक होना और समस्या को हल करना (stick up and set के साथ एक स्पेसशिप बनाने की कोशिश करना)
खिलौने, खेल और पहेली में कई प्रकार की सामग्री शामिल होती है, जिससे बच्चे खोज सकते हैं, एक साथ रख सकते हैं, खींच सकते हैं और धक्का दे सकते हैं/ खिलौना
खिलौना

बच्चे सामाजिक रूप से विकसित होते हैं:

  • अपने खिलौने को साथ मिल कर खेलना
  • सहकारी रूप से खेलना (दूसरे बच्चे के साथ ludo खेलना)
  • जिम्मेदारी लेना (सामग्री का सावधानीपूर्वक उपयोग करना और उन्हें उनके उचित स्थानों पर वापस रखना)

बच्चे भावनात्मक रूप से विकसित होते हैं:

  • अपनी स्वयं की शक्ति का अनुभव करना (एक खिलौने को प्लास्टिक के हथौड़े से मारना और उसे हिलते हुए देखना)
  • एक कार्य पूरा करके संतुष्टि प्राप्त करना (सफलतापूर्वक एक लकड़ी की puzzle को पूरा करना)
  • कल्पना और रचनात्मकता का विस्तार करना (अद्वितीय डिजाइन बनाने के लिए do it yourself  का उपयोग करना)

बच्चे शारीरिक रूप से विकसित होते हैं:

  • छोटी मांसपेशियों के कौशल का उपयोग करना 
  • दृश्य कौशल का अभ्यास करना
  • आँख और हाथ के तालमेल विकसित करना (लकड़ी की मोतियों को कसना)

जब बच्चों के पास खिलौनों के साथ खेलने का समय होता है

तो वे अलग अलग तरह से उस खिलौने का उपयोग सीखते हैं।

वे कई अवधारणाओं को सीखते हैं और मज़े और खेल में महत्वपूर्ण कौशल विकसित करते हैं।

No, it is not. We cross by the shop and we buy a toy because our child likes those building blocks or cars.

Why do we buy toys for our children? Part 1 of 3.

 Following could to some of the occasions we buy toys:

  • It is our child’s birthday, or any such occasion.
  • It is sibling’s birthday, and we don’t want the other child in the house to feel left out, so we buy two of them.
  • We are visiting a mall or shopping for something else and our child starts to disturb us. To do our work uninterrupted, we buy a diversion for our kid.
  • We are going outstation, and ourchild is not enjoying the event or trip, we buy one more diversion. Even if we have a shelf full at home.
  • We are with some friends and they bought a toy for their child, so we get influenced to buy one for our kid, because we must. (sounds crazy, but how many of us can say NO, to this)
  • If we have siblings fighting for the toys at home most of the time, we buy two toys next time, to avoid any fighting at home.
  • We are we happy for some reason, we buy toys for our kids
  • We are feeling  guilty of scolding, we buy toys.
  • Child got hurt, we buy toys to calm him or her down.
As parents/elders we are in these situations when we can not avoid gifting a new toy to our child. They deserve to have toys with them. Because it is their age to enjoy and play with toys.

As parents/elders we are in these situations when we can not avoid gifting a new toy to our child. They deserve to have toys with them. Because it is their age to enjoy and play with toys. 

But can we just avoid doing it too much? 

Why do we buy toys for our children? Part 1 of 3.

These points are not mentioned here,to stop giving toys to our children.

Read the above points again and you might notice, some buying could have been avoided.

Some suggestions, for the next time there is an urge to buy toys:

  • What’s the occasion?
  • Can buy a team game, instead of buying individual toys? (this might create a better environment at home. )
  • What kind of toy, my child is most interested in?
  • Do I really have to buy toys of the same nature, and make a collection of the same. ( if your child loves car, do you really need to buy twenty more cars, and make a collection out of it. Are you not limiting his or her imagination.)
  • Am I buying this toy because i like it and i want my child to like it too. (if this is the reason, please buy  that toy, and make sure you play that game with your child.)
  • Am I buying it as a showoff? (it is always better to develop the habit of sharing between the kids. 
  • If you are feeling happy, give some time to your child. Your time is more valuable than the toy.
  • You have scolded your child for some reason, don’t buy gifts, take him outdoors, play with him, and slowly tell him your good intentions, worries and reason behind that scolding.
  • Child is hurt, and this might divert his attention. (very personal choice and differ from child to child)

Hope these points are of some use to you. Please mention in comments box if you have any other reason for buying toys, to the kids who already have plenty of toys to play.

Less toys more development

Development of a child will be more with lesser toys. While most of the space in our child’s almirah is filled with toys, we can become wise parents and learn to limit the number of toys that our kids have to play with.

Toys are not something to just play with. Toys form the building blocks for our child’s future and development. They teach our children about the world and about themselves. They send messages and communicate values. So, intelligent and wise parents think about what foundation is being laid by the toys that are given to their kids. And they want toys that lead to development of the child.

Wise parents also think about the number of toys that children are given. They understand that fewer toys will actually benefit their child’s development in the long-term:

  • Children learn to be more organised. They  live in a cleaner, tidier home. If you have children, you know that toy clutter can quickly take over an entire home. Fewer toys results in a less-cluttered, cleaner, healthier home.
Lesser toys will be more fruitful for the child's development. Having lesser toys, is a better idea to give your child a childhood full of learning. It is not that toys are not important for a child. They are important. But, we don't have to keep giving them a toy in the very first chance we get. Lesser toys will lead to better development of a child.

  • Increase in the creativity of a child. Too many toys prevent kids from fully developing their gift of imagination.  Although boredom set in during the initial stages of the experiment, the children soon began to use their basic surroundings to invent games and use imagination in their playing.
Lesser toys will be more fruitful for the child’s development.
  • Children learn perseverance. Children who have too many toys give up too quickly. If they have a toy that they can’t figure out, it will quickly be discarded for the sake of a different, easier one. Kids with fewer toys learn perseverance, patience, and determination.
Lesser toys will be more fruitful for the child’s development.
  • Children become less selfish. Kids who get everything they want believe they can have everything they want. 

  •  Kids establish better social skills. Children with fewer toys learn how to develop interpersonal relationships with other kids and adults. They learn the give and take of a good conversation. 

  • Children develop a sense of responsibility for their belongings. When kids have too many toys, they will naturally take less care of them. They will not learn to value them if there is always a replacement ready at hand. If you have a child who is constantly damaging their toys, just take a bunch away. He will quickly learn.
Lesser toys will be more fruitful for the child’s development.
  • Children experience more of nature. Children who do not have a basement full of toys are more apt to play outside and develop a deep appreciation for nature. They are also more likely to be involved in physical exercise which results in healthier and happier bodies.

  •  Due to Fewer options to play, kids develop a habit of reading, writing a learning faster than children who have lots of games to occupy their time. Fewer toys allows your children to love books, music, coloring, and painting. And a love for art will help them better appreciate beauty, emotion, and communication in their world.

  • Kids become more resourceful. Fewer toys causes children to become resourceful by solving problems with only the materials at hand. And resourcefulness is a gift with unlimited potential.
Lesser toys will be more fruitful for the child’s development.
  • Kids argue with each other less. This may seem counter-intuitive. Many parents believe that more toys will result in less fighting, because, there are more options available. However, the opposite is true far too often. Siblings argue about toys.

  •  Kids learn to find satisfaction outside of the toy store. True joy and contentment will never be found in the aisles of a toy store. Children need encouragement to live counter-cultural lives finding joy in things that truly last.

  • Increase in the attention span of a child. When too many toys are introduced into a child’s life, their are unable to pay attention to one set of toys. This decreases the attention span to a child. A child will rarely learn to fully appreciate the toy in front of them when there are countless options.

Having lesser toys, is a better idea to give your child a childhood full of learning. It is not that toys are not important for a child. They are important. But, we don’t have to keep giving them a toy in the very first chance we get.

Alternatively, we should limit the number of toys, and give our child a chance to explore things around him.
