Building Skills with Toys

Dr. Kathleen Alfano

Ph.D. Director of Child Research at Fisher-PriceĀ®

Toys develop every aspect of a child's development. Studies reveal that right choice of toys help improve physical, cognitive, social, emotional, imaginative and language skills in kids. There are toys that are designed in a specific way and help provide overall development while some are focused on one or two skills only.

Studies have shown that children learn a lot while playing. So, it is very important to provide them with toys that fit in their abilities and help them in their development as well. For example, infants get attracted towards bright colours and so if colourful rattles and teethers are provided to them, they will help them learn and develop grasping skills.

Read on to find out how toys help in physical, intellectual, social and emotional development of children.
