Entertaining your children in a way that’s both engaging and educational is probably the most parent-preferred shape of playtime. It’ll come as no surprise that children, too, choose toys that bring satisfaction to a curiosity and a delight to the senses. Curiosities are a determined bunch, however, marching ever-forward and bringing that-which-delights along for the journey. Early childhood development experts tell us that there are ages which contain marked differences concerning what sort of toy engages a child and what sort of toy educates a child. A toy designed specifically for a child a few weeks shy of 18 months will be of little benefit to the boy entering kindergarten, just as his preferred toys will be of little benefit to his big sister in the 3rd grade.
For those parents wanting to provide their children with the perfect toy, the toy that will at once delight and educate their little ones, search for your kid’s particular point in their development in the list below and choose a toy that’s designed to benefit and certain to become beloved. Popfun has an excellent selection, and I’ve chosen a handful to highlight below.
1-12 Months – The Foundations: Sensory Play, Hand-Eye Coordination, Early Problem Solving
12-24 Months – Laying the Bricks: Language Development, Recognition Skills, Early Problem Solving
2 Years & Up – Continuing Cognitive Skills: Reading, Writing, Critical Thinking, and Physical Play
Invest in these toys, and you’ll be investing in your child’s education. After all, what’s more important than that?
Wishing you a happy, healthy, and educational weekend. Signing off from Popfun Headquarters, located in sunny Southern California.
