Sorting Toys and its advantages
Check out our sorting toys selection for the very best in unique or custom, handmade pieces from our learning & school shops.Everyone remembers the shape sorting and collecting toys from childhood. But did you know that it is still one of the best toys to give your little one?
It may seem old-fashioned, but sorting and stacking toys is one of the best toys for kids. You may remember growing up with the shape sorter and having to figure out if a square shape would fit into a round hole. Or are you a fan of assorted boxes? We loved them too!
Today, we're bringing back childhood nostalgia by sharing modern alternatives to sorting and storing toys. We also explain why they are so good and how they have helped us learn new skills from generation to generation.
6 advantages of sorting and stacking toys.
Life is full of puzzles and challenges. Fortunately, we have the motivation and determination to face these challenges and learn from them. Remember the surprised look on a young child's face when something went wrong? Then a surprised expression appears on your face while controlling the object and doing other actions. You have it! That's one of the great things about collecting and sorting toy shapes!
There are many other benefits, including six:
Hand-eye coordination - Children learn to pick up and place shapes or blocks.
Learning Cause and Effect - Learning "what if I do this" is very important and begins to understand the consequences for years to come. Shape recognition helps children learn not only the names of shapes, but also characteristics such as how they feel and how many faces they have.
The goal is to fit the container in a circle, no matter what your child is!
Develop motor skills - Manipulating pieces requires fine motor skills and this toy provides ample opportunity to develop these skills. Problem solving skills - your child will learn different ways to manipulate objects and use different strategies.
It's not enough to just let kids sort and stack toys and then expect them to reap all the benefits. As a parent, you can be there and help your child develop by:
shows you how to do it
Ask a simple question
Talk out loud about your thought process
Example of positive behavior when you can't do something
