Toy Blocks are Educational

Wooden toy blocks provide educational benefits in several areas, including, physical, social, intellectual, and creative.

Playing with blocks, children learn about different shapes, improve their eye-hand coordination, and learn about gravity, balance, physics, spacial relationships, and help them learn how parts become a whole.

When playing with blocks with other children, they learn how to cooperate. Interaction and imagination build creativity.

Parents who play blocks with their children can help them learn new words
as they learn about shapes, sizes, positions, and if the blocks are painted, colors.

Grouping, adding, and subtracting blocks from architectural endeavors help children begin to comprehend the basics of math, including geometry.

Basic construction techniques can also be learned.

Wooden toy blocks provide creative stimulation for children.

All they need to add is a bit of time and imagination to enjoy play time!
