Why learning toys matter

Learning toys are not mere playthings; they are valuable tools that ignite children's curiosity, foster their creativity, and promote holistic development.

These toys are carefully designed to entertain and engage children while simultaneously promoting their cognitive (thinking and reasoning skills), physical, and emotional growth. By incorporating educational elements into playtime, learning toys make the process of acquiring knowledge fun, enjoyable, and interactive.

What’s more, research shows that children who engage with learning toys improve their thinking abilities, develop better problem-solving skills, and have increased confidence.

Through playing with the right toys, children can grasp abstract concepts, develop both fine motor skills and gross motor skills, and strengthen their social and emotional intelligence (their ability to be aware of and manage their emotions, and recognize and understand the emotions of those around them).

Learning toys also encourage independent thinking, boost imagination, and nurture a love for exploration and discovery.

Wow, who knew they had so much to offer?

And the great thing is, your kids just think they are playing!!

Choosing the perfect learning toys 

With an abundance of learning toys available, selecting the right ones for your child might seem like a daunting task. Don’t worry, I’m here as your guide.

Why should you listen to me?

I‘m a teacher with over 30 years of experience. I initially taught preschool to Grade 5, and later specialized in special needs education, teaching students from preschool up to the age of 20. Learn more About Me >>

On many occasions, especially when working with youngsters with autism and other special educational needs, I’ve found that play has been the only way to engage an individual child and progress their development.

Learning through play has also been the way I’ve always worked with mainstream preschoolers and kindergarteners. And, of course, play learning is our ethos at home too.

Experience has taught me so much and I now want to share all I’ve learned with you.

What’s in store

Here’s a taste of what’s in store at Play Learn Toyz.

For newborns and babies, I focus on toys that stimulate their senses and facilitate early sensory-motor development by engaging their auditory, visual, and tactile senses and promoting hand-eye coordination.

For toddlers, I look at learning toys that are designed to nurture curiosity, encourage imaginative play, and develop their fine motor skills. Whether your little one is exploring cause and effect, discovering new textures, or developing their communication skills, they are going to be achieving all this through pay.

Preschoolers are at an exciting stage of development, eager to explore the world around them. The range of learning toys I recommend for preschoolers focuses on developing their creativity, problem-solving ability, and early literacy skills. There are some wonderful toys out there that introduce basic math concepts, phonics, and early science experiments, helping preschoolers build a solid foundation for their future academic achievements.

Elementary students thrive on learning through hands-on exploration. Learning toys for this age group are designed to challenge and inspire them. Whether your child is interested in nature, enjoys solving puzzles, or loves conducting experiments, I’ll introduce you to toys created for interactive learning that will foster a love for knowledge and intellectual growth.

For your middle schoolers and teenagers, I highlight a wide range of educational toys that cater to various subjects, including language and literacy, math, and science. Whether your child loves stories, is intrigued by number patterns, is fascinated by science, or is passionate about building structures, I recommend the perfect toys to nurture their passions and expand their horizons.

Play Learn Toyz is still a young website but I have huge plans for it, as you can see. Please bear with me as I work to bring you the best content possible.

I’m adding new content almost every day, so do come back often to discover all my latest information, recommendations, and ideas to help you support your children in reaching their full potential through the power of play.☺

Supporting your child's development through play

As parents and caregivers, you play a vital role in assisting your child's development through play. It’s not about just giving them a toy and letting them get on with it, although that’s fine when you’re short of time or need them to be engaged in a meaningful activity while you get chores done.

So, I’ll be offering you advice, insights, practical tips, and strategies on how to play with your children to make playtimes educational for them and fun for you all.

I’ll also show you how to seamlessly incorporate learning toys into your daily routines, transforming ordinary moments into extraordinary learning experiences.

Inclusivity and special needs

As a special needs teacher, and having family members with autism, I believe in the power of inclusivity and that every child deserves the best opportunity to learn and grow.

For parents of children with special needs, I offer guidance and recommendations for learning toys that can support your child's specific requirements. I aim to help you to create an empowering learning environment where your extra special child can thrive and reach their full potential.

The learning toys I recommend in the special needs section of Play Learn Toyz highlight toys designed for children with diverse abilities. These toys cater to a wide range of developmental needs, including sensory processing, fine and gross motor skills, communication, and social interaction.

I’m here to guide you as you support your little one on their own unique journey through childhood, ensuring they become as independent and self-confident as possible.
