What's your child's favorite toy? Is it a doll or a car or a soft toy? Whatever it is, kids love their toys more than anything else in this world.

Kids love toys. If you have any doubts about that, just take a child into a toy store. He/She will probably find a number of things that he/she feels he/she just can’t live without. Toys are more than just fun and games for kids. Toys help your child to develop certain skills more quickly and more effectively. They can help with the development of an astounding amount of different skills. When children play they develop a large different set of skills, ranging from physical (like hand eye coordination), intellectual (solving a problem), social (how to share and cooperate) and creativity (imagining new games with the same toys).

All experts agree: children learn by playing and toys are the instruments that allow them to discover the world they live in.

Did you ever feel toys are spoiling your child? Then it’s high time, you learn about the importance of toys.

A baby starts learning, the moment she starts breathing. From the second she comes to this world, she is on a learning spree just by watching the things around them. She will learn the way you teach her. This is the best time to teach her the differences between good and bad. Don’t let go off her mistakes just by considering her age. Before she is of age 8, teach her everything you want to.

The most important activity done by kids at this age is playing. So what better way do you to teach your child?

Playing is an important part of children’s life and the best time to learn and observe new things. Though children can play with anything that they lay their hands on, Early learning kits and baby learning toys are the best available option they should be given. Studies also prove that Early learning toys when given to children of tender age, their ability to grasp things becomes much sharper than the rest of the kids.

The Early Learning Toys help the kids associate the language to the things they play with and hear from the surroundings. Based on the things they are given to play, they try to identify the things and start naming them.

Children can learn a lot from playing. When you give your child toys and play with them with her, it gives her a chance to bond with you, learn, and have fun at the same time. And making education enjoyable will help your child retain the things she learns and develop a positive attitude toward learning.

Preschool toys also help toddlers to become acquainted with colors, numbers and letters. They also enhance interactive skills, and improve hand-eye coordination. The right kind of preschool toys encourage children to engage in basic activities like reading and writing. Playing with preschool toys can also enhance a child’s ability to communicate with other playgroup members.

Social Development

Some toys are important because they will help your child to socialize well. When children play with toys together, they learn how to share and build relationships. They learn how to handle conflict and how to react appropriately when they don’t feel like sharing or playing in a way that the other children want to.

Aside from improving children´s language skills, toys teach social skills and gives them an understanding of the society they live in. Toys invite children to interact, first with adults and then with other children their age. The simple act of playing with another child challenges them to experience situations where important lessons are to be learned: respect, cooperation and sharing. Toys also motivate kids to take initiative, learn to negotiate and teaches them how to get better organized.

Physical Development

Researches in child development have shown that play activities enhance every aspect of a child’s mental and physical growth. The play impulse has two essential characteristics: 1.The tendency to be experimental 2. The tendency to be active. As Preschool and Parental Education states, play "sends a child first to testing out his powers, and then to attacking experimentally his entire environment."

Other toys can be very beneficial for the development of essential motor (physical) skills. Fine motor skills can be developed by toys that encourage your child to engage with it in ways that require them to carefully use their hands.

Buttons, levers, switches and so on all encourage these types of skills. Even books can help develop fien motor skills when your child simply turn the page. Larger muscle groups can be developed at the same time as social skills when your child kicks or throws a ball to a friend. A pretend horse can also develop imagination and larger motor skills at the same time.

Toys get children engaged in physical activity, by exercising their fine and gross motor skills. Whether they are colouring or dressing and undressing a doll, for example, children are using their sense of touch and sight (fine motor skills) while walkers, tricycles or toy cars boost their physiognomy (gross motor skills) and strengthen their arms and legs. Toys also help them discover balance and coordination and by being physically active, children avoid obesity and adopt a healthy life style.

Ever since they are born, toys motivate babies to use their feet and hands in order to discover forms, colours and sounds. Once babies know how to sit and crawl, toys incite them to be on the move. If their favourite toy is out of reach, the baby will use its muscles to try and grab it.
