Building Blocks for Learning & Childhood Memories
Wooden blocks are simple, yet exceptional, educational toys. They inspire creativity, engage the mind, and are practical tools to help kids learn a number of important skills. Your child can build pyramids, castles, forts, and any number of unique creations. Alphabet or language blocks help your child learn letters, numbers, colors, animals, and more.
Wooden blocks are also ideal as keepsake toys. They become classic and nostalgic items that are passed on to next generations. They also serve as a wonderful reminder of a childhood full of fun and learning.
What Research Says
It is well known that toy blocks serve as building blocks for children's creativity. Research also shows a strong link to literacy development. A recent study reported in the October 2007 issue of Archives of Pediatrics & Adolescent Medicine finds a strong association between playing with building blocks and a significant increase in language scores in young children. On average, kids who played with blocks scored 15 percent higher on their language assessment than those who did not. Researchers speculates that such a measurable increase is partly due to creative block play replacing other time spent in activities that do not encourage language development, such as watching television. They also maintain that child and parent playing together remains the strongest way of promoting children's development.
