Benefits of Toys to Children



Toys are not only about play, fun and games –they are very essential for children’s healthy development. In the process of moving from playing with blocks to books to crayons to teddy bears and dolls, a child is already building pre academic skills Toys can be divided into several groups, depending on the part of the child it helps to develop.

Stuffed toys, musical mobiles can give soothing relief and comfort to a child in trauma. Whilst other toys for make-believe like dress-up clothes, toy cars, trucks, games, musical instruments, and books help children build self-expression and confidence.

Fine Motor skills required for writing and artistic development can be learned through drawing, painting and art activities. Toys for creative and intellectual development include clay, crayons, paints, books, paper, and scissors.
