Soft Toys - Benefits for Kids
A not uncommon view with parents is that soft toys are nice for kids but do not offer much of a learning experience for them. Well I think we all may be under a misconception here. If we look closely at how our kids interact with soft toys at various stages of there lives we can see that these soft toys can provide lots of development opportunities.
- Little babies are exploring the tactile world from day one. So how important are those lovely soft blankies and little toys to touch, squeeze and suck.Very important of course to have the appropriate good quality toys with not beads or small bits that baby can chew off. Kaloo is a top brand for soft toys. Sophie the Giraffe is also fantastic teething toy.
- For toddlers to about two or three years old, soft toys are helping with language skills. Lots of toddlers have a special soft toy bear or dog or pig with their own name. Their soft is a special friend and may be important to provide comfort and security. Ragtales is another quality brand of beautiful soft toys for kids. Darcy Bear is fantastic!
- As children get older they tend to engage in more imaginative play. The toy may be a princess or a dragon or a fairy. The Ragtales Tooth Fairy is a favourite with little girls. It is fair to say that soft toys provide important learning and special emotional development for kids. I know there are many adults who still have fond memories of their childhood soft friends.
