Why wooden toys?

Why wooden toys?

One of the primary advantages that wooden toys have is that they require a child to use their own imagination to play. Play in the beginning stages of a child is crucial for their development and growth. In today’s day in age, there are an infinite number of toys to choose from that can interact with your child. However, studies show that imaginative play is CRUCIAL for a child’s cognitive ability. Wooden toys do not have electronic parts or voice commands that will instruct your child on what to do. Thus, allowing your child to use their reasoning skills as to which activities they see fit. Role-play and imaginative play will also stimulate different types of intelligence like emotional, thinking, and social skills. Some of the classic wooden toys, like puzzles and building blocks, help children with numeracy, motor skills and problem solving. Children also begin to exercise their fine motor skills and hand eye coordination with wooden toys instead of simply pressing buttons and watching.

Children love to experience different weights and textures. Plastic doesn’t give off the same feeling and sensory experience to a child as a wooden toy does. There is a certain sensation that comes with rubbing your hands over a well-crafted wooden object and kids know this better than anyone. On top of this feeling, there is a timeless element that wooden toys add to a room. This modern look and simplicity adds perfect decor to any room.
