Every parent wants to give their child a head start when it comes to
their early development, and there are many educational toys available
that can stimulate your child to grow and develop in fun and playful
ways. It’s been scientifically proven that young minds need stimulation
to develop thought and reflex patterns and good hand/eye co-ordination.
The toys available must also entertain your child if you want basic
learning skills to develop. The child won’t even realize that lessons are
being taught, because it’s so much fun!

Toys that feature a lot of turning buttons and items will help to develop
motor skills and co-ordination. Toddlers and infants especially love the
toys that make noise. Also, toys that feature keyboards or noise-making
buttons can help your child to associate actions with obtainable and fun
sounds. A basic ability for sound recognition is usually developed in
this manner.

It’s important to realize that there are age-specific toys for every
level of childhood, because children grow through various stages of their
development. Educational toys must stimulate the child’s imagination
during play to be effective, and these toys must match their learning
ability. Interactive toys are some of the best educational and fun toys
for a child. They usually stimulate and entertain the child so that they
can learn while having fun.

Any activity that involves pulling or pushing something is also a
favorite activity, followed next by filling and emptying anything.
Toddlers are curious and have to touch and look at everything in their
world. Action toys, cause and effect toys and any activity that
challenges their minds are always favorites. Stacking blocks, simple
puzzles and any toys that pop up are also high on the list of fun and
educational toys.
Shape sorters, which are colorful and interesting, can keep a child
entertained for hours. Bath toys are also colorful toys that are a great
way for your child to have fun and learn in an unlikely spot. Interesting
bath toys that bob and float and make noise are wonderful playmates in
the bathtub! Some great bath toys include the traditional rubber ducky,
foam letters and numbers, and the more sophisticated bath play areas that
are educational and fun additions to any child’s bath time.

Older toddlers can have fun with colorful fridge magnets, books that
feature sounds and songs and other interactive toys. Any sorts of
fanciful play sets, such as garages, airports and dollhouses, can also be
popular and educational ways for your child to learn about the world
around them. Toys that feature clay modeling, chalkboards or anything
that the child can write on will help to give the older toddler an outlet
for expression.
