Cube Toy For Baby

If you haven’t seen them yet, cube toys are all over the internet. They’re simple, easy to make and perfect for babies. The best part? They can be customized to fit any baby’s interests. In this guide, I’ll show you how to make your own baby cube toy using wood or paper!

Is a baby cube toy safe?

Safety is always important, especially when it comes to your baby’s toys. So, before you buy a cube toy for your little one, make sure that you:

  • Be careful with small items. Check that the cube toy is not too small for your baby to swallow or choke on.
  • Make sure the material is safe for your baby. If it’s plastic, look out for BPA-free materials (many toys are made from plastics containing BPA). If it’s cloth or fabric, be sure that there aren’t any loose threads or buttons which could cause a choking hazard for your kid.
  • Make sure there are no sharp edges on the cube toy either! This can also be dangerous so make sure to check everything carefully before buying anything online!

What can you put in a cube toy?

Cubes are a fun and versatile toy. They can be used as baby toys, toddler toys, and children’s books- which means that your little one will never get bored! The cube is also perfect for storing blankets and pillows in the living room to create a cozy atmosphere when you’re watching tv or reading together. If you prefer to have more than one of these cubes around the house you can even put stuffed animals inside them so they have their own special home too!

Let your imagination run wild with all of the different things that can be stored inside these useful little cubes!

What are some DIY cube toys ideas?

You can make a DIY cube toy out of a cardboard box, plastic container, or plastic bottle. First you’ll want to cut the top off the box. Then measure your dog and cut two holes in the side of the box for his head and front paws. Finally, attach two pieces of rope to each side of the cube so that you can tie them together in order for your dog to pull it around.

This project requires only a few basic supplies and tools:

  • A water bottle – preferably one that is small enough for your cat but large enough so he has room inside (about 1/4″ thick)
  • Scissors or craft knife (if cutting with scissors)

Can you make a softer fabric cube cubby for baby?

You can make a soft fabric cube cubby for baby using a lightweight, washable fabric. You’ll need a ziplock bag to keep the pieces together:

  • Cut one side of the ziplock bag off using scissors or an x-acto knife. The best way is to cut right down the middle of where you see the zipper end (it’s kind of like cutting open a sandwich). You want to leave enough room around each piece so that it doesn’t fall out easily when you sew them together later on!
  • Cut two squares from your fabric (this will be two sides of your cube) that are about 4″ x 4″. Fold these in half lengthwise so they’re now 2″ x 4″, then place them inside the opening of your ziplock and pin them in place securely by sewing along all four edges where it folds over itself on itself right next to where it was sewn shut originally with thread or yarn (you don’t see this stitching because its hidden inside). Try not rush through this step but take time making sure everything looks neat before moving onto next steps 🙂

Are there patterns for wood baby blocks and cubes?

Yes! There are many different types of wood and finishes, and you can find patterns online or in books. You can even pick up a block at your local craft store, take it home and finish it yourself.

Can you make a wooden cube toy for baby?

Wooden cube toys are also great for baby. They are durable and easy to clean, which makes them a great choice as a toy that your little one can play with while they are developing motor skills.

In addition to being economical and environmentally friendly, wooden cube toys can also be made by you at home!

If you’re interested in making your own wooden cube toy, there are plenty of tutorials online that will walk you through the process step-by-step. All you need is some basic tools and materials like paint, sandpaper or stain (depending on how much time/money you want to spend), and glue for affixing pieces together. You might also consider adding bells inside so there’s something fun for baby when she shakes it around!

Can you make a baby cube out of paper?

You can make a Baby Cube out of paper. To make one, you’ll need the following materials:

  • Paper
  • A pencil or pen for drawing on it (optional)
  • Scissors to cut out the cube shape. If you have a paper cutter, that works too! But if not… just do your best. You don’t have to be perfect here! The important thing is that when they’re done being shaped into cubes and then folded up into cubes again later on, they fit together nicely and stay together without falling apart into flat pieces of paper (or fabric). That’s really all there is to this whole thing – cutting out rectangles in certain shapes and sizes, folding them up in different ways so they become cube-shaped when unfolded again later on by unfolding those same folded rectangles back into rectangular pieces again first before unfolding each individual rectangle back into its original square shape again finally but only after first folding each piece once more this time using different kinds of folds than last time during which step we did unfold them all first anyway before finally unfolding each individual piece yet again…

How can you personalize a baby cube toy?

There are many ways you can personalize a baby cube toy. You can use a marker to write your message on the cube, or use fabric paint to color it. You could even use stickers or stamps to make a pattern on it. If you want to get really creative, try using buttons, beads or other craft materials to decorate your baby cube toy! Or why not make one for each of your friends?

A personalized baby cube makes a great homemade gift for new parents.

Making a personalized cube is an easy and fun way to make your new baby’s first toy. You can personalize it with the new parents’ names, the mom’s due date and other details about their life together.

Here are some ideas for what you could put on your baby cube:

  • Your family’s last name or initial
  • The name of the child who will be playing with the toy (or someone else in the family who will be playing with it)
  • A special message from grandparents or other family members, such as “Love Grandma & Grandpa” or “Made with love by Mom & Dad.”
  • The baby’s birthdate or weight at birth

What Toys Are Good For Babies

Good toys for young infants:

  • Things they can reach for, hold, suck on, shake, make noise with—rattles, large rings, squeeze toys, teething toys, soft dolls, textured balls, and vinyl and board books
  • Things to listen to—books with nursery rhymes and poems, and recordings of lullabies and simple songs
  • Things to look at—pictures of faces hung so baby can see them and unbreakable mirrors

Toys for older infants—7 to 12 months

Older babies are movers—typically they go from rolling over and sitting, to scooting, bouncing, creeping, pulling themselves up, and standing. They understand their own names and other common words, can identify body parts, find hidden objects, and put things in and out of containers.

Good toys for older infants:

  • Things to play pretend with—baby dolls, puppets, plastic and wood vehicles with wheels, and water toys
  • Things to drop and take out—plastic bowls, large beads, balls, and nesting toys
  • Things to build with—large soft blocks and wooden cubes
  • Things to use their large muscles with—large balls, push and pull toys, and low, soft things to crawl over

Toys for 1-year-olds

One-year-olds are on the go! Typically they can walk steadily and even climb stairs. They enjoy stories, say their first words, and can play next to other children (but not yet with!). They like to experiment—but need adults to keep them safe.

Good toys for 1-year-olds:

  • Board books with simple illustrations or photographs of real objects
  • Recordings with songs, rhymes, simple stories, and pictures
  • Things to create with—wide non-toxic, washable markers, crayons, and large paper
  • Things to pretend with—toy phones, dolls and doll beds, baby carriages and strollers, dress-up accessories (scarves, purses), puppets, stuffed toys, plastic animals, and plastic and wood “realistic” vehicles
  • Things to build with—cardboard and wood blocks (can be smaller than those used by infants—2 to 4 inches)
  • Things for using their large and small muscles—puzzles, large pegboards, toys with parts that do things (dials, switches, knobs, lids), and large and small balls

Toys for 2-year-olds (toddlers)

Toddlers are rapidly learning language and have some sense of danger. Nevertheless they do a lot of physical “testing”: jumping from heights, climbing, hanging by their arms, rolling, and rough-and-tumble play. They have good control of their hands and fingers and like to do things with small objects.

Good toys for 2-year-olds:

  • Things for solving problems—wood puzzles (with 4 to 12 pieces), blocks that snap together, objects to sort (by size, shape, color, smell), and things with hooks,
    buttons, buckles, and snaps
  • Things for pretending and building—blocks, smaller (and sturdy) transportation toys, construction sets, child-sized furniture (kitchen sets, chairs, play food), dress-up clothes, dolls with accessories, puppets, and sand and water play toys
  • Things to create with—large non-toxic, washable crayons and markers, large paintbrushes and fingerpaint, large paper for drawing and painting, colored construction paper, toddler-sized scissors with blunt tips, chalkboard and large chalk, and rhythm instruments
  • Picture books with more details than books for younger children
  • CD and DVD players with a variety of music (of course, phonograph players and cassette recorders work too!)
  • Things for using their large and small muscles—large and small balls for kicking and throwing, ride-on equipment (but probably not tricycles until children are 3), tunnels, low climbers with soft material underneath, and pounding and hammering toys

Toys for 3- to 6-year-olds (preschoolers and kindergarteners)

Preschoolers and kindergartners have longer attention spans than toddlers. Typically they talk a lot and ask a lot of questions. They like to experiment with things and with  their still-emerging physical skills. They like to play with friends—and don’t like to lose! They can take turns—and sharing one toy by two or more children is often possible  for older preschoolers and kindergarteners.

Good toys for 3- to 6-year-olds:

  • Things for solving problems—puzzles (with 12 to 20+ pieces), blocks that snap together, collections and other smaller objects to sort by length, width, height,  shape, color, smell, quantity, and other features—collections of plastic bottle caps, plastic bowls and lids, keys, shells, counting bears, small colored blocks
  • Things for pretending and building—many blocks for building complex structures, transportation toys, construction sets, child-sized furniture (“apartment” sets, play food), dress-up clothes, dolls with accessories, puppets and simple puppet theaters, and sand and water play toys
  • Things to create with—large and small crayons and markers, large and small paintbrushes and fingerpaint, large and small paper for drawing and painting, colored construction paper, preschooler-sized scissors, chalkboard and large and small chalk, modeling clay and playdough, modeling tools, paste, paper and cloth  scraps for collage, and instruments—rhythm instruments and keyboards, xylophones, maracas, and tambourines
  • Picture books with even more words and more detailed pictures than toddler books
  • CD and DVD players with a variety of music (of course, phonograph players and cassette recorders work too!)
  • Things for using their large and small muscles—large and small balls for kicking and throwing/catching, ride-on equipment including tricycles, tunnels, taller  climbers with soft material underneath, wagons and wheelbarrows, plastic bats and balls, plastic bowling pins, targets and things to throw at them, and a  workbench with a vise, hammer, nails, and saw
  • If a child has access to a computer: programs that are interactive (the child can do something) and that children can understand (the software uses graphics and  spoken instruction, not just print), children can control the software’s pace and path, and children have opportunities to explore a variety of concepts on several  levels

Safety and children’s toys

Safe toys for young children are well-made (with no sharp parts or splinters and do not pinch); painted with nontoxic, lead-free paint; shatter-proof; and easily cleaned.

Electric toys should be “UL Approved.” Be sure to check the label, which should indicate that the toy has been approved by the Underwriters Laboratories. In addition, when choosing toys for children under age 3, make sure there are no small parts or pieces that could become lodged in a child’s throat and cause suffocation.
