Through play, growing bodies and brains get all the stimulation they need to develop. That’s why all our toys are designed to support each stage of a child’s development.
From learning to sit to taking those first wobbly steps – every new skill takes lots of practice for children to master. And each skill usually develops during specific time periods; we call them developmental milestones. It’s these developmental milestones we base our toys on.
Between the ages of six and twelve months, babies will enjoy playing with objects within reach; touching, feeling, and biting them. The shape and size of things become more interesting too. Tiny objects will be visually clearer and fun to pick up.
From 9 to 12 months, babies become extremely curios about their surroundings – slamming things together to create sounds. This is also an age where babies fine motor skills are getting more refined, and where they enjoy using their thumb and index finger to pick up small objects.
Children’s motor skills have developed greatly at the age of 2. The ability to focus has increased, so naturally they will discover lots of new ways to play. For instance, children this age like scribbling with crayons and dropping objects into buckets and bowls. Stacking toys that allows children to fit objects inside or on top of each other become very popular. And after the age of 18 months, simple shape sorters or puzzles can offer lots of fun too!
At the age of three, children’s hand-eye coordination becomes refined, and fine motor skills are improving through handling small objects. This is a period where children will play alongside each other, but they are still learning to share toys or play actively together.
Since their hand coordination is at a pretty high level, children this age like to help out in the kitchen, scrubbing vegetables, snapping peas, tearing salad, and peeling bananas. Cutting with safety scissors is also fun.
This is also a period when children’s imagination truly blossoms, and where they’ll start enjoying all types of pretend play: such as “playing house” with imaginary friends, dolls and stuffed animals.
During the age of four, problem-solving and creative play becomes more important. Gross motor skills have improved too, skipping, running and jumping has never been more fun.
Children become very affectionate at this age too, especially towards parents. Strong feelings of empathy will develop, and when playing with other children being able to share and take turns happens more naturally too.
At the age of five play becomes richer, and children’s social skills are developing rapidly. As a result, playing with friends is more fun than ever. Activities such as painting with a brush and staying inside the lines challenge their fine motor skills, and many children will enjoy play that gives them freedom to build and construct.
5-year-olds take great pride in different accomplishments and love encouragement along the way. But then again, don’t we all?
