Childhood is full of play. From the very beginning an infant learns about the world through play. Throughout toddlerhood and the preschool years play continues to be the way a child learns about the world. From the time a baby starts to stare or bat at a colorful toy to the highly imaginative preschool years, playtime has an important role in a child's development.
In infancy a rattle like the Kushies Cha Cha Buggy Sensory Pleasing Rattle helps a baby make a connection between his movements and the sound. As your little one has teeth start to emerge, a teether like Sophie the Giraffe will help soothe tender gums and provide a fun squeaking sound to help your baby learn cause and effect. A hanging toy makes a great companion when you are away from home. Lamaze hanging toys can be hung on a car seat, stroller, or a baby carrier.
When your child starts to walk the pull-toys from Plan Toys can bring some delightful fun. Your child can practice walking around while pulling a toy. As your child becomes more proficient at walking, your child can pull the toy while walking backwards. Toys like the Plan Toys Dancing Alligator make click-clack noises as your child walks along with the toy.
Imaginative play is important for cognitive development. From the time your little one starts pretending to drink from a cup to elaborate tea parties with twelve invited stuffed toy guests, imagination has a major role in your child's development. Whether pushing a little toy car while making car noises or spending hours designing and playing with an elaborate Plan City layout, toys can be used to fuel a child's imaginative play.
