HI, guest

Many toys and games are for girls and boys alike. But did you know that some games attract girls more? Puzzles and problem-solving games are among girls’ favourites. So there is no reason for you to rack your brains!

Pretend play is part of the different learning phases of the child. Make sure that you offer a variety of simulation scenarios. Cardboard houses, costumes and toys that allow children to create their own imaginary world are sure winners.

Games involving pairing up and classifying objects help children develop logical thinking. Construction games develop skills related to colours, sizes and quantities, while figurines address the concepts of imagination and symbolism.

The child’s job is to play. Play helps children develop and use their imagination. It is their way of expressing themselves. Each age group of children has toys and ways of interacting with toys and games. Let children play at their own rhythm.

Pattern or course games develop the concept of numbers, causal relations and anticipation. The most classic to the most modern share the same characteristic: they are played by a group and require interaction around the table. Children learn a very important concept also related to conversation: taking turns.
