The best toys for child development

1. When play experiences are developmentally appropriate, child-led and open-ended children have a chance to learn and grow.

2. Play is children's work! It is a vehicle for them to make sense of the world around them.

3. By having children play with open-ended toys they will be creating their own narrative, using critical thinking skills, problem solving and language.

Remember: open-ended toys have the following 4 characteristics:

  1. Non mechanical

  2. Can be used in multiple ways

  3. Can be used throughout different stages of development

  4. Spark children's curiosity and problem solving skills
