What educational toys should I choose for my 18 month old?
Parents or siblings are the best guide through the world of educational fun. Proper development and learning processes depend on contact with another human being. It is the caregiver who plays with the little ones, points out and names objects or pictures, talks about the world and everything that happens around.
For caregivers who care to support their children’s development in the best and more pleasant way, we offer toys, puzzles and books that are made of safe and certified paper and cardboard. Our products’ illustrations and form are always adjusted to a child’s age, abilities and developmental stage.
We know how to attract toddlers and inspire them to reach for educational toys. Our products are colorful. The topic and complexity of the illustrations are carefully designed. Therefore little ones reach for our products eagerly and want to play. Adults can be assured that each product provides many great inspirations for learning and spending time together.
An 18 month old baby’s development
Toddlers already know a lot. They carry on to develop at an impressive rate. They walk, jump, climb. This allows children to explore the world. Toddlers could be called little scientists: they observe surroundings, carry on their own experiments (like throwing things to see what happens) and learn from such experience. They communicate better using sounds and simple words. Moreover, an 18 month old child’s hands are more efficient. Children are able to manipulate objects better and are more and more precise with their actions. Children recognize objects in pictures and can name them.
Our first simple games, puzzles and books cover topics familiar to toddlers, such as animals, colors, vehicles, shapes, objects and concepts known from their immediate surroundings. While playing, children can train logical thinking, perceptiveness, and categorization skills. They are inspired to learn new words on topics. They can improve their fine motor skills and grip. Various games help develop large motor skills and balance. Each product provides a great opportunity to explore the world under and spend time together which builds a unique bond with the child and caregivers.
