The nursery is often one of the most difficult rooms in your house to design and decorate. The reason is simple; you want the very best for your child. Even after you’ve managed to design the room you may struggle with the right toys and how to place them

Fortunately it is possible to improve a nursery room with toys and it is much easier than you think to get the right toys. These are the ones that your child will enjoy playing with which will also help their education.

Here are 5 great ways to improve a nursery room with toys:

  1. Baby Dolls

This is generally something for a girl’s room. A baby doll can help your child to explore their imagination and discover a new world of playtime. Even when your child is small the touch and feel of the doll will help them to understand the world round them.

  1. Build The Toys In

If your baby loves playing in the ‘kitchen’ then add a small kitchen to their room. This will allow them to play using their imagination but you can also benefit as your child will effectively be tidying their room as they go.

  1. Go Large

It’s a great idea to select large toys when your child is young. These are easier for them to handle. They can also be a lot of fun as your child becomes part of the play.

For instance a dolls house which your toddler can actually walk into is great for their imaginative play. Or a tent over their bed will make them feel like they are camping every night.

  1. Keep It Simple

When children are very young they will struggle when faced with having to choose between more than 2 or 3 things. Therefore make it easier for them and remove the majority of the toys in their room or keep them out of sight. A new study even suggests that too many toys are bad for children.

This way you’ll be able to direct their attention to specific toys and help their decision making abilities.
