  • Practicing Social Skills – Playing can also encourage your kids to socialize with fellow kids. Kids communicate through their toys. Toys will surely break the barriers and the ice.
  • Stimulating Curiosity – Kids are naturally curious. They always question the things around them. In playing, their curiosity is stimulated. You will know that they try to get answers.
  • Fostering Creativity – Adults will see a toy plainly but when children see it, they imagine a lot of things. Their imagination and creativity are unlimited. You will be amazed how they give life to their toys.
