SKILLS AND DEVELOPMENT
Blocks & Construction
The cups are easy to build with. This is especially important for successful early building experiences and the development of fine motor skills. The toy encourages manual dexterity and hand-eye coordination for early independence. It has been clinically proven that mastery of hand-eye coordination, number recognition, problem-solving, and construction play will challenge children and develop spatial awareness for later in life. Stack them up, take them down or organise them side by side.
Manipulate & Handle
Through the repetitive movement of placing the cups above each other with room for creativity, children can find inner self-confidence that they will apply in many different settings for the rest of their lives.
Learning & Education
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. Using stacking cups, your little goober will learn to how to think logically. After some tries where the cups topple over your kid naturally learns that there is a specific way that the cups need to be arranged so that they don’t topple over. This may seem simple but is definitely the start of critical thinking in a child.
At 18-24 months your toddler should stack 5 blocks on top of each other in a stacking pyramid without them toppling over. Numerous studies have ascertained that inclusion of building blocks of any kind into a kid’s playtime can help incredibly in developing mathematical and language skills. Language skills will develop when your little goober learn the size and colors of the cups. On the other hand mathematical skills will develop when the child is curious and start counting and the subtracting the number of cups.
