Children love baby toys that make sounds. Whether it’s animal sounds or the sound of a rattle- your baby is sure to have a lot of fun with such a toy! However, not every toy is suitable for the age of your baby, because too loud sounds can damage the ear of your child in the long run. Therefore, you should consider some important things before buying.
For this reason, we have compiled a checklist for you, which contains all the important information about toys with sounds. Our product recommendations will also help you with your selection.
- Babies prefer naturally produced sounds through crackling foils, bells, rattles or cardboard.
- electrically produced sounds should have test seals or certificates – for example TÜV Süd/ TÜV Rheinland etc.
- the most pleasant sound for the baby in the first 4 weeks of life is human voice.
- artificial animal voices are not suitable for the baby in the first 6 months, as they cannot be processed/assigned.
- the baby hears in the same frequency ranges as you, 20-20,000 Hz.
- in the first days of life there is sometimes still amniotic fluid in the ear – in these days the baby hears sounds more muffled – do not amplify the sound if the baby does not react immediately yet.
- the baby’s hearing is still developing, sounds should be rather soft and harmonious, e.g. music boxes or voices.
- Sounds should remain below 86 dzB, above 120 dzB there is a risk of hearing damage.
- if the sound is annoying for parents, the baby should not play with it for a long time either – bad moods caused by annoyed parents are also felt by the baby!
- The louder, the further away from the ear with the toy!
- a sound that is linked to a certain activity, e.g. “changing diapers” with”crackling” can provide for positive, but also for negative links.
- think about whether you want to link the toy with a certain activity or feeling.
- Music, rattles, water splashing – all sounds are important for the discovery and development of hearing, but should never run on a continuous loop.
- Music boxes & Co: maximum running time 30 minutes.

FAQ For Baby Toys
Toys for babies can be used as soon as the baby can grasp things. This is usually the case between 1 and 4 months, but varies depending on the stage of development.
A baby toy should not exceed 85 decibels, as too loud music or noises can damage your baby’s hearing in the long term. Your baby’s hearing has yet to develop, which is why you should opt for quiet and calm music at the beginning, which provides relaxation.
Gripping and teething rings as well as cuddly toys or rattles are particularly suitable for the beginning. Later, when motor skills are more advanced, music and building games are very popular. However, especially the very young are also satisfied with simple objects that do not have to be purchased separately.
A cuddly toy with sounds should be made of cotton inside. This makes this nice and soft, so it can be used well for cuddling. If the animals are filled with synthetic wadding, they can also be used well by allergy sufferers.
Toys with few sounds and functions are suitable for smaller children and babies. A rattle is therefore already more than sufficient and does not overwhelm your child. If your baby is older than 6 months, your baby is already more receptive and his hearing can also tolerate louder sounds. Then it is possible to buy toys with louder sounds. However, even as a parent, make sure not to buy toys that are very loud or annoying in the long run, so that you and your child are not annoyed after a few days.
Toys are very important for babies, as they can develop their motor skills and creativity with the right toys. Of course, you should not overdo it with the toys. Especially babies are still very busy with themselves and therefore do not need an abundance of toys.
Music boxes, rattles or relaxing background music are very suitable for babies. On the other hand, loud noises that exceed 85 decibels should be avoided. In addition to permanent hearing damage, your baby may otherwise be frightened by the loud noises and lose the fun of playing.
Babies from three months begin to grasp objects. Therefore, gripping balls or soft cubes are sometimes suitable for your baby. If your baby already has teeth, a teething ring can also be an advantage.
Among other things, there are numerous animals that can make sounds. But even dolls and robots are sometimes able to speak individual sentences or produce sounds.
