A child needs stimulation to develop physically and emotionally. This stimulation can be provided by toys. Different types of toys like institution toys, motor toys (in Danish motorisk legetj),etc helps in skill building and encourages the child to take up challenges. When a child is able to achieve a particular milestone he or she feels elated which leads to development of the mind and body. Parents should choose toys which they know that will make their children enjoy and at the same time harness their potential. There are different types of skills that a child has to develop from an early age. These important skills are motor skills, verbal and aural recognition skills, problem solving skills etc.
Another important thing that parents should keep in mind, while buying toys is that they should buy age appropriate toys for their children. Educational games and toys are usually labeled with the recommended age for playing those and introducing your child to such toys at an early age will be very beneficial for him or her. There are even toys for babies which show that learning should begin very early.
Every child will develop at different rates; while some children will be walking well before their first birthday others are still finding their feet at 15 months. All children are natural learners; they are like sponges absorbing new experiences and their surroundings constantly. Introducing educational wooden toys can play a very important part in their formative years.
A child’s early awareness and curiosity in the world around them is their first tentative steps into understanding nature, science and the world around them. The child’s home environment with their toys and interaction with adults and other children greatly influences their early language and educational development. Playing with toys is a huge part in a young child’s life so it should not be surprising how significant the effect is on their development.
