The wooden toys offer benefits that may not be obvious at first. It's true that a wooden toy can't make noise. It can't move by itself. Furthermore, it doesn't have a remote control. It doesn't use batteries. It can't do all the wonderful things that electronic toys do.
However, rather than being a disadvantage, these things are actually beneficial. Not that there isn't a place for these types of toys, but rather that the wooden toy is a valuable addition to any child's toy collection.
Wooden toys are generally sturdy. They don't break easily. Because of their strength, they can handle much more weight and pressure than other toys. This allows them to play in more ways than most adults think when deciding which toy to buy for their child.
Wooden toys allow the imagination a huge scope. Because the toy bears no resemblance to the television programs children have watched, their imagination has a chance to run wild. The number of different ways to play with the toy is limited only by the way the child can use his or her imagination. The more a child exercises his or her imagination, the stronger it becomes.
There are many benefits to a child having a strong imagination. It is a vehicle for entertainment at any time and in any place. Most people would agree that this is very useful, not only in childhood, but throughout life. Children also use imagination to explore their world, feelings and problems. It allows them to integrate their feelings, dreams and actions. In short, it is a valuable vehicle for them to become well-adjusted members of society.
The actual toy determines what educational factors can be developed. All wooden toys will have educational or developmental benefits.
For example, wooden puzzles can help develop hand-eye coordination and problem solving. Of course, puzzles made from other materials offer the same benefits. Wooden puzzles, being stronger and more durable, may be able to offer them for longer.
Bead sequencing sets or other sorting games can offer hand-eye coordination and reasoning skills.
Anything that stimulates the process of discovery and learning will enhance children's educational and developmental process. Wooden toys of all kinds can fall into this category.
Purposeful wooden toys lend themselves to children creating new games with them every time they play with them. For this reason, children will come back to play with these toys often. This makes wooden toys a great choice to add to any child's life.
