A vital element in children's early development is a response to visual stimuli. Products with visual stimulus such as movement or flashing lights, can engage the child in a fun activity in which they enjoy a sense of expatiation of what is to come next. Products which allow children to interact and control their visual stimulus develop their sense of cause and effect.
Toys that include some type of physical challenge and allows kids to find solutions are extremely beneficial in developing fine motor skills. The simple action of using a stack up toy invites children to solve the problem in a simple, yet satisfying way and rewards their efforts at the same time.
Every child is curious and has a desire to explore new things. Toys can benefit the child to discover things around the world through fun, and at the same time create a better stimulus to learn and recognize things. Development of discovery encourages a child' s exploration and to figure out the cause and effect.
Products which involve colors and shapes are a vital ingredient in a child' s development and help to develop numerous skills such as motor skills, co-ordination, problem solving and visual identification. The simplest function of determining the correct location, or name, for a color shape rewards the child with fun and a sense of accomplishment.
Children benefit from toys that stimulate their imagination and allow them to engage in "pretend play". It is in these situations that they develop a sense of satisfaction from making their own decisions and making things happen. The greater the stimulus to imagination, the more creative the child' s play will become, and most importantly, they will be having fun.
The importance of play in stimulating a child's imagination cannot be emphasized enough. As infants grow into toddlers and toddlers into preschoolers, their imagination explodes. Everything around them becomes something they can transform into their 'pretend' world. The simplest, most traditional toys are often the most brain stimulating, inspiring children to use their imagination to the fullest. Through developing their imaginations, children become capable of creating a concept, organizing their thoughts and then perceiving it into their play. Toys that inspire this type of imagination can help children develop creative thinking skills that are important for academic and life success.
