As new parents it can be hard to navigate through all the endless toy choices that are available to your child, so I wanted to share with you some tried and tested toys that are classics. They will be enjoyed through out your children’s early years and the majority are open ended toys, which have been chosen as they allow your child countless creative possibilities to imagine, explore and captivate.
Wooden toys allow a child to use them in multiple ways as there are no batteries, no noises, and no lights. Your child’s imagination is enriched as they make their own noises for the train or create a safari world for their wooden animals or make you multiple pieces of birthday cakes or plates of food. When a child is allowed to explore their own imagination through play they gain self confidence whilst exercising their fine motor skills and coordination to make the toy move, begin to understand complex social relationships by exploring the world around them and develop life skills like sharing and co-operation.
Here is a great guide to some beautiful, versatile and toys that will be loved and cherished by your child through out their early childhood.
