Every child has a variety of toys. Toys are very important to children’s development. Because toys can promote children’s brain development. Therefore, many parents will let their children play with toys that can develop children’s intelligence. What are the specific benefits of these toys that develop children’s intelligence for children?
1. Stimulate the senses
Toys that develop children’s intelligence are a window to the world for babies. Educational toys, like all toys, encourage children to use their senses to engage with the world. For example, toys that develop children’s intelligence can stimulate functional development. Educational toys with bright colors and attractive lines can stimulate children’s vision. Toys that make a sound when you hold them, toys that emit various animal sounds when you press the button, etc. can stimulate children’s hearing. Rolling colored balls can cultivate children’s sense of touch. Different toys that develop children’s intelligence are all effective tools to help children understand the world.
2. Language training
When the child is playing, he will recite words to the toy from time to time, and “talk” to the toy. Don’t underestimate this mode of communication, it gives children the opportunity to use language to express their meaning. At this time, if you, as a parent, can participate in it, it will not only cause the children to talk more. It can also guide his diction and expression skills, and strengthen his ability to master the use of language.
3. Develop intelligence
Educational toys are toys that allow us to develop intelligence and increase wisdom in the process of playing. According to a study by the Royal Academy of Sciences of the United Kingdom, people who often play with educational toys have an average IQ of about 11 points higher than those who do not play. Their brains have higher open-thinking abilities. American medical experts also found that the incidence of Alzheimer’s disease among people who started playing adult educational toys before the age of 50 was only 32% of the general population. The incidence of people who have played educational toys since childhood is less than 1% of the incidence of the general population.
4. To express emotions
Have you ever noticed that when your child is frustrated or angry, he throws a toy. This is the child’s expression of dissatisfaction. In the real world, children can’t just vent their emotions to others, so toys become substitutes. Like adults, children need channels to vent their emotions. Otherwise, depression will form mental illness, which will affect the child’s health.
