Educational wooden toys



Educational Wooden Toys

I am going to try and give you a few basic hints as to what you should be looking for when making your choice for purchasing or sourcing out Toys for preschool age kids.

Firstly I a firm believer of offering kids toys made out of natural material and echo friendly toys.

I am not a lover of plastic toys. My first on the list is Educational wooden toys, and also if they are painted make sure that paint is non toxic. All toys in my store are painted with non toxic paint.

Now the following are some food for thought to think when making your choice..
  • manipulative skills
  • pretend play 
  • sorting, lacing, threading
  • imaginative play
  • language skills
  • story telling
  • learning difficulties
  • behaviour  problems
  • social problems
  • co-ordination
  • fine motor skills
  • building, designing
  • colour recognition
  • mathematical concepts
With a toy you might be able to cover one or many concepts of the above...so think what do you really want to achieve, or what are you trying to develop or encourage more in your child.
When you are buying a gift for your child being your child or otherwise, I encourage choosing something that has a purpose behind it as well....kids get bored very easily, so it is great to have in mind that while they are playing, they are also enriching or developing their skills...
I hope you find this  helpful in choosing the right Educational Wooden Toy for your child...below are some of the range of products that you will find in my store... I would also like to hear your input...would love some feedback or comments....always love comments!
