4 Categories Of Toddler Learning Toys And Why They Are So Important

puzzles, etc. Toys such as this type help to give the child the ability to learn how to move their bodies and how their bodies move in relation

to other solid objects around them.

sound/light games, water games, bubbles, play dough, sand toys, etc. These education toys help your toddler to differentiate between the

many different aspects of the five senses that will aid them later on in life.

3) Toys that Engage the Toddler's Imagination or Social Skills - Educational toddler toys such as dolls, dress up costumes, play houses,

imaginative games, books, etc. Toys such as these can help broaden your child's mind helping to imagine all sorts of different things as
