Kids love toys, and parents love toys that disguise learning as playing. After all, that’s how children learn. Edushape® has tons of toys that are designed to do just that.
They recently sent Liam their Kiddy Connects Advanced® try out. These colorful and pliable shapes are all designed to link together in different ways. They are perfect for working your child’s fine motor skills. Work disguised as play. That’s my kind of toy!
The Kiddy Connects Advanced® are one step up from Edushape’s Kiddy Connects in that this set has additional shapes, to develop greater reasoning and logic, via shapes that go beyond the 90 degree limit of the standard Kiddy Connects. These toys are also great in helping with your child’s hand-eye coordination, and visual sensory development.
All of these are important skills that children learn while playing. As an autism mom, I know that many children like my son, lack these skills. This is the reason I was so excited to have Liam try out the Kiddy Connects Advanced®.
(I almost forgot! Kiddy Connects Advanced® comes with 50 pieces in a convenient, easy to clean up jar.)
So why Edushape® Kiddy Connects Advanced®?
I think all preschools, and even kindergarten classrooms could benefit from these toys. I also think Kiddy Connects Advanced® would be a great tool for Occupational Therapists to utilize with their clients. As I stated above, kids using these toys are amused and engaged, and yet they don’t realize that they’re working on important skills.
Edushape® has many other great toys that are not only enjoyable, but educational in many ways. They have so many toys to choose from. Water play, construction toys, puzzles, music toys and more! Their website even breaks down the toys by age groups, and specific skills that you may want your child (or client) to work on. This is phenomenal for parents, educators, and therapists alike.
You don’t just have to take my word for it. Check out all the awards that Edushape® has won for their fantastic toys. From National Parenting Center’s Seal of Approval, Parent’s Choice, Creative Toy, Dr. Toy, and more.
