Playtime Is Important!
Every child deserves a chance to play with the best toys in the early years and stages of their lives to allow them to learn through their inquiry, creativity, and problem-solving. It’s also very important for parents and caregivers to know the type of toys to give to children at different stages of life, younger children need toys that allow them to be creative, encourage problem-solving, exploration and develop fine motor strength as well as build their self-esteem. Meanwhile, kids that are older need toys that expand play into adventurous, more fun, and challenging.
Every household should have toys that encourage imaginative play and that will last long enough for them to play with for many years. Most often, if not all the time, parents look to find that perfect balance between a learning toy and a toy that will keep their child entertained long enough to buy them time to complete household tasks, grab a cup of coffee while it’s still hot and catch up on your tweets and reels.
Here’s a roundup of toys that are great for entertaining a wide range of ages and perfect for learning too.
Toddlers like to stack blocks, babble into a toy phone, or pretend to eat with a toy fork the same way they would see an adult do. Have you come across a toddler tucking a baby doll into bed at night or making “choo choo” noises while pushing a toy train? The concept of pretend play starts now. Lay the foundation for preschool play with Doctor Play Set, Space Gun Blaster or Lego Olivia’s electric car available at our store.
Your toddler will also get to understand that each item serves a purpose and begin to differentiate colors and shapes. Pick toys that are bright, colorful, fun, and within the right size for little hands to hold. Most toddlers can kick a ball, scribble with a crayon, and build towers by the age of 2, and by the age of 3, they can do simple puzzles and pedal a tricycle. Your toddler will fall in love with the KidzRobotix Wacky Electric Robot if they are inquisitive and have an interest in adventure or start having imaginary friends.
Don’t be surprised when your older kids start bringing you into a fantasy and expect you to play along with their “imaginary friends”. This stage of playtime often called “fantasy”, will help your kids face their fears, anxieties, hopes, and dreams. Physical abilities like large and fine motor skills start to develop and refine at this stage too.
Your child may start to show interest in learning to ride two-wheel bicycles and daring to glide on skateboards. Arts and crafts become more intricate, and a child might spend hours weaving friendship bracelets or drawing comic strips and that is all a part of their learning and understanding of the world around them.
