Building Blocks - Simply Fun, Yet Stimulating Play For Your Toddler.

Updated on March 16, 2011

According to the online dictionary Wikipedia - "In 1798,Witold Rybczynski found that the earliest mention of building bricks (also called building blocks) for children appeared in Maria and R.L Edgeworth's Practical Education (1798)."

"Called "rational toys," building blocks were intended to teach children about gravity and physics, as well as spatial relationships that allowed them to see how many different parts become a whole."

It's obvious that building blocks have been around for a long, long time.

Even at it's birth, the positive impact of building blocks on children were highly recognized.

In addition to stimulating and building your child's creativity and thinking abilities, building blocks teach children how to control his/her movements in a precise way.

Who knew that simple building blocks (or bricks) were so influential!

Available in plastic, wood, and cloth; in addition to a variety of colors and shapes; parents truly have a wide selection to choose from.

So if you're looking for a great way to stimulate your child's creativity and thinking abilities(devoid the fear of over-stimulation), in addition to teaching them vital motor and thinking skills, why not opt for a set of children's building blocks.

Building blocks - simple, yet so effective.

      Thanks Nargess,This is exactly what I was thnnkiig too! I was thnnkiig that would be a great talk line for a Mojri. I was even tempted to talk about Mehrnoosh in my program as an example, but then I thought the programs needs to be independent from each other .

      Thanks Hello, hello for stopping by. I loved building blocks as a kid, and my kids love them now. I never knew just how important they are to a child's development until after doing some research on the subject.
