    As parents ourselves, we at 1888Toys.com toys store, totally understand how overwhelming, challenging, yet greatly rewarding raising children can be.

    Children learn by playing. Playing is a natural and wonderful way for them to broaden their horizons and boost their knowledge. Educational toys bring a great deal of joy to children, but they also can be valuable learning tools. Exploring, pretending, and sharing are just a few of the important skills children develop while they play. Every child is unique, has its specific pattern of development and has different ways of cruising through the milestones of physical, mental and social development. Right toys and games are vital for the physical and mental development of your child. The toys have a significant bearing on children's personality, therefore must be carefully selected. Toys should not promote a single thought or concept; instead, they should enhance creativity and thinking skills. Toys that can be played in a number of ways serve as great educational tools and endorse comprehensive development of your child.

    To find the most appropriate toys and games that stimulate children's development, improve learning abilities and fun for children to play with, it is vitally important. With a lot of factors to consider, choosing the right educational toy with developmental and learning value is a very challenging task. Educational toys, developmental games and learning playsets presented on 1888Toys.com toys store, create stimulating and challenging environment and encourage children to take their first steps into learning in a fun and enjoyable way.

    Importance of Educational and Developmental Play in the Early Years

    There are many parents around the world that are doing their best to raise their children so they will become successful and intelligent adults. What many parents fail to realize is that the early years of a child's life is extremely important, and a time that will shape their life for the years to come. Some parents may merely look for ways to keep their child occupied and use television and other electronic games to keep their child entertained, but they may not realize that these activities may actually be stunting their child's development and education. It is imperative that parents begin to understand the importance of early childhood education and work to incorporate educational and developmental play into their lives while they are young.

    Statistics Show a Problem
    Looking at the educational, developmental, and emotional statistics on today's children show that there is a disturbing problem. In the past 20-25 years statistics have shown a definite decline in the abilities of children. In the 1990's a study that was done in Manchester, NY on 1,000 children showed a variety of disturbing findings. More than one fifth of these children studied had developed attention and hearing problems from watching television, which lead to difficulty in language development.

    Back in 1994, studies were done by the National Assessment for Educational Progress on children in the United States, which showed that almost 75% of fourth graders across the country were not reading on a fourth grade level. Even more shocking in this study was that 42% of the fourth graders studied could not even read on a basic level. A recent study in the UK, by psychology professor, Michael Shayer showed that in 1976 the eight year old children had the same thinking skills of 11-year olds today, which shows a definite decline in the development of today's children.

    Changing Your Child's Future
    Since we have looked at the negative statistics that show what television and other electronic toys are doing to children and their educational development today, it is important that we look at how these things can be changed. The first thing that you can do to promote the proper development of your child is to understanding the importance of early childhood education so you can start incorporating educational play and various developmental activities into the lives of your children. There are various activities that you can explore with your children that will help them develop developmentally and educationally as well.

    Benefits of Educational Play
    Once you start incorporating educational toys and games into your child's life, you will begin to see a variety of the benefits of educational play. Educational play can help a child learn to explore creativity and the world around him. Educational play will also help your child to start developing math skills and even reading skills at a young age as well. Not only there are short term benefits of educational play, but there are long term benefits as well. Many researchers have found that children that played with educational toys as young children actually had an IQ that was 32-50 points higher than children who did not. Other studies have shown that playing with educational toys as a child can significantly affect the intelligence even when they reach their late twenties. If you start using education play with your child, you will see benefits for the years to come.

    Benefits of Developmental Activities
    There are also a variety of benefits of developmental activities as well. Some of the developmental benefits that are associated with these activities include physical, verbal, logical, spatial, intrapersonal, and interpersonal benefits. Some of the physical benefits would include hand to eye coordination and the development of motor skills as well. Verbal benefits would include children learning to listen to, speak, and read a language. Logical benefits would include your child learning to solve problems and to recognize various patterns around him. Each of these benefits is very important to the long-term development of your child, so these activities too will impact your child for their entire life.

    As a parent, it is time for you to start reevaluating how you allow your child to spend their time. In order for your child to develop properly and to advance educationally through life, it is important that you lay aside previous methods of play and entertainment, such as the video games, the television, and other electronic toys. Start using educational toys and participating in developmental activities with your child. While the statistics surrounding today's children are scary and depressing, as a parent you can make a change. Remember, your child's educational and developmental future lies in your hands, so embrace the importance of early childhood education and start providing the right educational tools and toys for your child.
