ABOUT OUR CARDBOARD BUILDING BLOCKS AND THEIR BENEFITS.
It is a known fact that kid’s building blocks are one of the best learning toys for toddlers on the market. Besides offering creative, open-ended play other benefits include:
Important physical benefits: Both a child’s hand and his little finger’s will build up strength as they lift and carry and build different structures and mazes with toy blocks. Young kids coordination between their hands and their eyes will also be developed.
A variety of social skills are learned during open-ended playtime: Making new friends of all ages and genders just comes naturally when they are engaged in open ended play with large blocks. They learn it can be fun to “work” with other children and discuss new and interesting ideas that pop up while playing with one another. This benefit alone makes blocks one of the best educational toys you will be giving your children.
Blocks are learning toys for toddlers and children that teach creativity and problem solving: Children can practice coming up with new ideas of how to play with their blocks and decide what new patterns they can build. Block play helps children develop emotionally: When making large buildings and towers with large cardboard blocks they are provided a chance to express strong feelings. In the beginning a young child may feel frustrated when their structures fall down but through continuous play with their toy blocks they will learn to cope with these feelings and actually learn to have fun when they, themselves knock down their towers. They also learn balance and coordination during play time.
There are several intellectual benefits: As parents, you will notice that your children’s vocabularies will progressively be developing as they play with cardboard building blocks. Also, children will naturally begin to notice that all objects are not the same size, shape, or color as are evidence in our 40 piece set of toy blocks. This set of kids blocks continues to be the most popular of our learning toys for toddlers.
Block play helps children develop physically: Children of all ages develop both large and small motor skills and eye-hand coordination when they play with kids building blocks. As children learn to walk carefully around block structures, they improve their balance, control, and spatial awareness.

A child’s capacity for representational thinking will emerge and increase and their thinking and acting will take on many new qualities as you watch and listen to their changes in pretend play time. As always it is important to include in your selections of learning toys for toddlers, toys were children are free to role play.
Other aspects of their early representational thinking are apparent in both the toddler years and in their preschool years. It is these transformations in thinking and understanding that occurs in the first few years of life that provides a solid foundation for a lifetime of intellectual growth; which makes it important for children to have safe educational and learning toys from the very beginning of their lives. It is important to select your preschool toys carefully.
Gradually, your baby’s abilities do improve and by about the age of two and one-half months they will be reaching for objects by swiping at them. At about four and one-half months your baby will be able to reach for and grasp an object so have a safe clutching baby toy available. Remember, your baby will only be able to grasp an object that is well within his or her visual field so you will have to have it in front of her or hand it to her. If her hand and her object are in her visual field she can reach for and grab it for herself. Not until about five months of age can a baby reach for an object when her hand is not in view so be patient.
Our 3d puzzle assortments of animal families are great toddler toys for ages three and up. Before a child is two years old she will have trouble putting puzzle pieces together unless you have a two piece baby puzzle. If a child under two were to try to assemble a jigsaw puzzle she would try and force the pieces together and get frustrated. But at two and older she can approach a wood puzzle by thinking, looking, and comparing the pieces. She can choose the pieces that seem to match even though the puzzle may be too difficult for her. She will be beginning to demonstrate a more advanced way of trying to solve problems which is typical in the last stage of sensory-motor intelligence.
