Choosing right toys for toddlers and infants can be a challenging task for parents and teachers. Many parents believe that playing with the right toys help their child in growing, learning, developing and thriving. Whereas, others don’t realise the importance of playing.
Playing helps children learn to experience the world and to engage in interesting activities, practice new skills, and internalize new ideas. For instance, when a child bangs on drum, the drum create a sound through which a kid learn how to create sound. Similarly, through playing, kids learn the important concept of cause and effect.
The brain of a child is like a sponge. It is believed that before age eight, the mind of a child absorbs massive amounts of physical, emotional and cognitive development, through playing. Playing helps the kid to gain confidence, learning decision-making skills and acquiring critical thinking skills and prepare them for adulthood.
