What Features make the best pram toy?

The best types of toys for prams will have:


Bright Colours

Bub will love the contrasting patterns and different textures

  • Visual Stimulation: Bright colours and contrasting patterns can captivate a baby’s attention, aiding in their visual development.
  • Tactile Experience: Varied textures encourage touch, an important part of a baby’s sensory development.
  • Engagement: The mix of colours and textures can keep a baby interested during pram rides, making the journey enjoyable for them.



Sound Elements

Babies love that crunch, rattle, squeak, music and more!

  • Auditory Development: Different types of sounds can stimulate a baby’s auditory senses, helping in the development of hearing.
  • Interactive: The inclusion of multiple sound elements like squeakers, rattles, and musical notes can make the toy interactive, promoting cause-and-effect learning.
  • Entertainment: Diverse sounds can entertain the baby and may even serve to soothe them if they’re feeling agitated.



Clip or Ties For Pram Attachement

Let’s keep mum and dad’s life easier with toys that easily attach to the Pram so it doesn’t get lost

  • Security: A clip or tie ensures the toy stays with the pram, eliminating the risk of losing it during outings.
  • Versatility: Easily detachable clips or ties mean the toy can also be used in other settings like a car seat or crib.
  • Ease of Use: Parents can quickly attach or remove the toy, making it convenient for varying situations.



Baby-Friendly Materials

Ensuring toys are safe and non-toxic is a must!

  • Safety First: Materials should be non-toxic and comply with safety standards to ensure the well-being of the baby.
  • Soft and Chewable: Many babies will want to put the toy in their mouth, so it should be made from materials that are soft and free from sharp edges.
  • Easy to Clean: Given that pram toys will inevitably be drooled on or thrown around, they should be easy to clean for hygiene purposes.


Sensory toys to entertain and stimulate

Sensory toys awaken the senses in babies and toddlers, encouraging them to reach, grab, twist, pull and crinkle. We have a fantastic collection of sensory toys to attach to prams that are BPA-free and made with baby-friendly materials.

Shop activity spirals to wind around the bumper bar, like our ones from Done By Deer with cute critters like foxes, birds and hedgehogs. Additional features like bells, mirrors and horns keep the fun times going.

Discoverosity 3-in-1 Classic Stroller Toy by Skip Hop is an educational toy complete with high contrast patterns, bright colours and a wooden ring. This popular pram toy provides babies with endless visual stimulation and opportunities to develop their motor skills on-the-go.

The Farmstand Mushroom Baby Stroller Toy is another top pick that offers loads of sensory fun. With adorable mushrooms and acorns, babies can entertain themselves with rattle sounds, a grab ring and multiple soft textures for little hands to explore.


Why are baby toys so important?

Baby toys aren’t just fun – they give infants the stimulation they need to start developing important skills and building strength in their bodies. Activity toys and sensory toys in particular help babies to learn skills such as hand-eye coordination and grasping as they focus on the toys above them and reach up to take hold of them.

On walks, babies can get fussy if they don’t have something to focus on and play with. Stroller toys up the fun factor when out and about by dazzling little ones with pretty colours, interesting textures and new sounds to explore. Another bonus with these toys is that most come with a strap or a tie so that you can fasten them onto the stroller bar to avoid losing them when walking.


Teether toys to soothe and relieve

Teether toys are important for little ones as their teeth start to come through. Sore and swollen gums are a common side effect which can be uncomfortable for babies. Giving your child some teething toys when strolling can help take their mind off irritated gums and give them something to chew on instead for relief. Silicone is a top material as it’s safe for infants to put in their mouths and easy for them to bite down on. Silicone toys are also super easy to clean.

At Metro Baby, we have a great range of teether toys to take with you on your outdoor adventures. The Done By Deer Activity Jelly combines chewy rings with an adorable plush jellyfish with soft arms that crackle and jiggle when pulled. Another popular choice is the Silicone Teething Ring by Haakaa. Made from BPA-free silicone that’s hypoallergenic and food-grade, babies will love biting down on the soft shapes to cool and soothe aching gums. Simply tie the ring to the pram bar or attach it with toylinks.

Baby toys for every type of pram

The best thing about stroller toys is that they attach to any type of pram you have. From single prams to double prams, travel prams and jogger prams, all you need to do is clip or tie them onto the front bar so that they’re within easy reach of the baby and they can see them as you’re walking along. You can also keep the toys inside the pram with bub so that they can cuddle and play with them more easily.
