Wooden Toys Are Less Distracting And Encourage Imagination
When your kiddo plays with natural toys or wooden toys, he/she is forced to think, use their imagination, and figure things out by themselves. They also learn about basic grasping, distinguishing items, and developing sensory skills. From one seemingly simple toy – a shovel and a set of colored bowls and apples, your toddler can learn colors, counting, sorting, and pretending. (Older toddlers can use their apples and bowls in their pretend kitchens.)
By playing with educational toys on a regular basis, their little brains develop in a way that does not happen from playing with electronic toys. THIS is why you hear neurologists and educational experts say that wooden toys offer a variety of options to toddlers.
As your little one plays with educational toys, they have to supply all the voices, noises and sounds. (The bells and whistles of electronic toys interrupt a child’s thinking process and they certainly do limit your child’s imagination, because they box us into specific ways of playing with a toy). But by playing with natural educational toys, your toddler is in control of what is happening. Their minds are clear as they think through different scenarios or solve problems.
