Playing with toys make up some of our fondest childhood memories. Starting early in infancy and toddlerhood, toys play an important role in early childhood development. Here are some reasons you should buy educational toys for your little one and how Mr Toys can help you find just the right brain-tickling books, games, and toys to help foster a life-long love of learning.
There are many reasons parents should consider the educational value of toys, and why certain toys may be better for different childhood age groups than others. When looking at the wide array of educational toys available in Australia, you should consider your child’s individual personality, their age, and whether the selected toy is safe for them, and what sorts of skills a particular toy is intended to develop. Some toys are designed to help sharpen your child’s developing senses, while others demonstrate important concepts such as cause and effect or help to bolster your child’s memory. There’s no shortage of ways you can use toys and play to help inspire your budding intellectual!
While toys geared toward older kids are also often intended to be educational, most ‘educational toys’ typically target babies, toddlers, and pre-schoolers, because the brain develops most rapidly during the first five years of life, laying down the vital neural pathways and connections needed for future cognitive development. Thankfully, these types of simple toys are also a lot of fun for young minds, meaning your child will have a blast while their brain is busy at work.
Mr Toys has a great selection of early learning books, puzzles, games and other toys that are educational for sale. Dinosaur enthusiasts are sure to love The Great Dino Race board book, featuring movable eyes that allow novice readers to follow the action from one page to the next. Your kid can also enjoy sensory play with the help of fun and slimy Gogopo Goobands, including the Mixogoo collectible pots that allow children to learn about colours while they squish and squash to mix them together. Many of our toys also help develop your child’s innate imagination and creativity such as the Shopkins Mini Colouring Set, which makes colouring on the go a breeze.
You can buy these educational toys and more either online or at one of our many store locations throughout Queensland. We also provide $12 flat rate domestic shipping anywhere in Australia, allowing you to save money while knowing you are getting high quality educational tools for your child.
