Doll, car, train


Hand made toys!

Kids learn how to appreciate other peoples  efforts when they are aware that one person has dedicated their time and patience in doing something. To get this feeling i recommend to engage your kids in such activity where they will spend their time, be patient, and dedicate them into making a toy so later they will experience the procedure and cherish the effort. You wont have to worry about new toys, they will protect and enjoy the already existing toys.

Divergent thinking


Divergent thinking means to think in an unusual, novel and unique way. It is one ability that is highly appreciated in the new modern world.

“Creativity or divergent thinking can be identified with openness in expressing feeling, receptivity to ideas, concern for others, desire to grow as a person and actualize one’s potentials. Hence creativity is the playful exploration of thoughts by a person who is open, curious and imaginative.”

Promote spatial skills


Visual- spatial abilities are important for success in solving many tasks in everyday life. For example, using a map to guide yourself through an unfamiliar city, merging in traffic, orientation…

Also is important for success in many fields of study like: architecture, engineering, natural sciences, math.

“Visual-spatial ability is becoming increasingly important with the development and proliferation of new technologies such as imaging, computer graphics, data visualization, and super-computing. Highly demanding spatial tasks include the construction of mental representations of object configuration from images on several screens representing different perspectives, as in some fields of surgery.”

This is another very interesting game suitable for 8 years old’s and more. It is great educational tool that helps us to improve our imagination, creativity. The goal of the game is to roll the dice and create a story based on the pictures on the dice. There are no limits on using these dice.

Stimulates Baby’s Vision and Auditory Skills
When babies are first born, they see in black and white. This is why the Musical Inchworm strikes a balance between bright, high contrast patterns that help stimulate baby’s vision, and bold solid colors that give baby’s eyes a place to rest. Sounds like rattle, squeak, crinkle, and jingle also help stimulate and develop baby’s auditory skills. Finally, the Musical Inchworm’s large, friendly eyes invite baby to focus and stare at a single object, which can help calm baby while supporting healthy eye development.

Child-Safe Design
With its soft velour body and interesting textures to touch and chew, the Musical Inchworm is an ideal play and rest-time companion, whether baby is at home in his crib or traveling in the car. Safe and easy for little hands to hold and investigate, this toy also features an underside that measures your baby up to 24 inches. It even plays the song “If You’re Happy and You Know It Clap Your Hands” when you squeeze the nose. Perhaps the most rewarding feature of the Musical Inchworm’s design, however, is the bonding opportunities it offers. In fact, this toy is perfect for an interactive game of peek-a-boo–simply hide the inchworm’s head underneath a blanket and then show the baby the inchworm as you say “peek-a-boo!”
