34 Grounded Toys for Tots

Floor-Based Toys Offer Parents a More Stable Way for Little Ones to Play

— March 12, 2014 — Life-Stages
When it comes to occupying kids, especially toddlers and infants, making sure they aren't getting into any trouble can be a challenge, which is why these floor-based toys are a great way for parents to keep an eye on their little ones at all times.

It's through curiosity and exploration that babies learn to expand their minds and imagination, which can also lead to a plethora of possible dangers and hazards if parents aren't constantly on the lookout. Floor-based toys, such as building blocks and rocking chairs, allow infants to engage in playtime while comfortably based on the ground, helping to diminish the possibility of getting hurt through possibly falling off of a higher surface.

From critter puzzle blocks to doodled racetracks, these grounded toys for tots will definitely give new parents who are worried about safety greater peace of mind.
