Making sure your child has enough opportunities for free play throughout the day is of great benefit to both your child and your whole family, allowing opportunities to release energy and have some fun. Even early on in a child’s development, their mind is expanding just by taking in their environment and absorbing the sights and sounds around them, and research continues to show the importance of learning through play as a big part of a child’s development.
The introduction of educational toys can help children learn a number of different skills. They can help develop problem-solving skills, teach them how cause and effect work, and teach them about conflict resolution. In addition to this, these toys help children learn about sharing, help develop their fine and gross motor skills, and nurture their creativity and imagination.
Educational products such as blocks promote hand-eye co-ordination, and teach children about shape and space, gravity and spatial awareness, sharing and letter recognition.
The great thing about educational toys is that there is that they are beneficial for both babies and children.
