Climbing toys for toddlers need to be a challenge, but they also need to be safe. The good news is that toys specifically designed for children need to pass some pretty high standards of safety before they are approved for sale. Any concerns that you have for your child’s safety have already been thought of in the process of a company’s development of a toy. Toddlers toys are specifically designed with color and shape to attract your child to it, and to keep them focused on the climbing toy and not something else in the backyard or home that could potentially be more dangerous.
Toddlers climb because they can. Climbing is an important stage in the development of a child’s motor skills. At about the 18 month mark, toddlers have the ability to start taking control of their body movements. They begin to explore with these new found abilities and for parents it can be a worrisome time.
