Children enjoy playing with toys and they are eager to learn about the world around them. Every new shape, colour, texture or even a sound is a new learning experience to them. Providing children with toys that are safe and educational will help them to discover new senses and learn new skills.

Toys with contrasting colours help stimulate children’s vision and colour recognition skills. Easy to grab and hold on to toys like baby rattles and building blocks are perfect to encourage development of fine motor and hand to eye coordination skills.

As the children grow the new and different educational opportunities arise as their knowledge expands. By plying with shape sorters, stackers or vehicles children learn the difference between colours, sizes, shapes and different textures. It inspires them to develop spatial awareness, coordination and cognitive skills.
