SKILLS AND DEVELOPMENT
Blocks & Construction
When toddlers start to stack objects, you’ll see them assessing “problems” and experimenting with solutions. They’re practicing problem solving skills and contributing to their cognitive development by stretching their brain. Activities like these make valuable educational games because they take more concentration than many of the other activities your child has been pursuing up until this point.
The toy encourages manual dexterity and hand-eye coordination for early independence. It has been clinically proven that mastery of hand-eye coordination, problem-solving, and construction play will challenge children and develop spatial awareness for later in life.
Learning & Education
The set serves to develop very specific skills through meaningful, hands-on experiences; and encourages self-directed approach to learning along a more natural developmental trajectory.
Through the repetitive movement of placing the boxes on top of each other or inside the other with room for creativity, tots can find inner self-confidence that they will apply in many different settings for the rest of their lives.
Discover & Experiment
Brightly colored two-tone cylinders mixed with natural wood will stimulate the discovery of nesting- Sorting and stacking.
This wooden block toy is handy for teaching tots about spatial awareness, how things work, object/size relationships, and developing fine motor skills as they move the block and boxes around.
At 16-18 months your toddler can successfully stack three blocks without them toppling over.
