Young children love playing and learn through play. It is important to have well made educational toys that appeal to this age group. In this blog, we take a look at some of the best toys and books to make learning fun for your little one.
Educational toys like “The Very Hungry Caterpillar”, a 2-sided floor puzzle from University Games is designed for ages 3 years and above. This double-sided floor puzzle comprises 26 extra-thick and large pieces that feature images based on the bestselling titles from Eric Carle on both sides. This puzzle will engage young children while developing their hand-eye coordination and problem-solving skills. This educational toy also serves as a springboard to reading. Memory match games like “Mudpuppy tropical frogs shaped memory match” contain large and vibrant frog-shaped pieces that will enhance your child’s visual memory, vocabulary and recognition of colours and patterns.
The best books for your young child
At KidsnToys, we know that children’s books are most effective when they invite involvement and allow children to be engaged emotionally. We are pleased to offer these lovely books written by award-winning author Kat Merewether. These books are well written and have interesting and colourful illustrations. Kuwi’s Huhu Hunt is a celebration of the parent and child bond. Kuwi’s First Egg, Kuwi’s Rowdy Crowd and Kuwi’s Very Shiny Bum will capture your children’s imagination and motivate them in learning more about the world around them. These books can kick-start meaningful discussions about various topics which can further develop your child’s critical thinking skills.
Reading to your child
Reading a book to your child enhances the bond with them because it provides the sense of being nurtured. This feeling of well-being and attention that they feel encourages many beneficial factors including:
• Enhanced cognitive and language skill development
• Enhanced concentration and discipline
• Increased creativity and imagination
• Cultivation of a lifelong love of reading and preparation for academic success
