How Toys Help Child Development | Preschoolers and Kindergarteners

It has been proven that toys play a critical role in the development of children throughout different phases of their life. It's important to understand that kids benefit from a variety of different toys in order to help support various aspects of their development at certain ages. We are going to take you through some of the most important things to look for when selecting toys for your preschoolers and kindergarteners.

Which Toys are Good for Preschoolers?

Preschoolers and kindergarteners are at the age of experimentation. They are no longer toddlers and now have more stamina to focus and problem solve. At this age their imagination is blossoming and they need toys that they can build and create with. Pretend play is prominent at this age. It is important that the toys and books that preschoolers are given have a deeper level of details to stimulate their growth and development. 

Our products at OTOblocs provide kindergarteners and preschoolers a gender neutral solution to imaginative play, problem solving and collaboration. These are skills that need to be fosters after children pass the age of three to insure that they gain confidence in their abilities and build a positive relationship with self-expression and imagination. Our innovative block system allows kids to follow along and create some of our suggested build ideas or engage in open-ended play, either way OTOblocs has your back!
