Choosing the correct toys for your babies are very important. These are the little things that make their world a colorful, fun and creative place. Do you know that toys can improve their imagination? Not all toys can but if you know to choose the correct toys, then you are on the right track. All parents and gift buyers for small ones should know the simple rules when buying toys. So, we came up with some of these tips for you.
Toys used in variety of ways
One thing is that they won’t feel dull when they use this type of toys because there are so many ways in which you can use these multiuse toys. For an example take building blocks. How many things did you create using those blocks? There are so many things you actually can do and give your little one the chance to enjoy puling in, pulling out, putting them back together, build up and also break apart those building and roads they have made. Do you know that toys like blocks can actually build a child’s imagination and creative skills?
Encourage problem solving from the small age
We all need to learn that skill from our small age. There are so many toys that you can buy for your kids that can help mould their problem solving skills. For an example, puzzles, clay, paint, crayons, shape-sorters are some of those educational toys in Singapore you can find in shops. Plus, these toys never get old. Your little one would want to play with them over and over again.
Help them be creative
How creative can your baby be with building blocks? Similarly, there are so many other types of toys that will help them be more creative. With time, this is one skill they will be developing and learning to shape up. So, give that encouragement from their childhood by presenting with such gifts. Your kid will actually think that she’s the mother of the doll you bought and will be nursing her, changing the doll’s clothes and make tea and cook with the kitchen set you bought for her. Check for doll houses, action figures, toy vehicles, and other types of toys.
Like crayons and clay can help them be more creative, you also need to pour in some knowledge during their small age. Building the familiarity of words and letters is very essential. Other than helping them to speak you also need to encourage him/her to read and write as well. So, check for some nice short stories in the Ladybird Classics for small ones. You can also bring magnetic alphabetic letters to teach them small words and painting books with animal names, plants, flowers and much more.
