If you have a toddler, chances are you have a range of stacking toys at home. They look great but do you know their benefits? I want you and your little one to get the most from our products so I have compiled a list with all the benefits of playing with stacking toys.
Colour Recognition - Colour is very important for a child's development so try to rotate toys that have an element of colour. It engages their senses and they are naturally drawn to it. Play with your child and use it as an opportunity to practise their colour recognition. Depending on your child's age, this can involve you showing the colour and speaking the word "ie: Pink", asking your child to point to the 'pink' item, or with sentences such as "the pink one comes next, can you find the pink shape?"
Creative Play - most importantly, allow your child freedom to play with the toy however they wish. Allow them to place pieces in the 'wrong' order, upside down, back to front etc. Not only does this contribute to problem solving (as discussed above), it facilities creativity and ultimately creates a positive play environment for your child.
