Not only are building toys for toddlers fun, they are also the foundation for development in your child’s dexterity, problem solving and fine motor skills. Through the toddler years and beyond, construction and building toys will progressively increase a child’s skill level. Learning colors and shapes to begin with and sharpening their powers of reasoning by solving pieces of each building puzzle. Imaginations will grow as the kids get to choose endless construction possibilities. The building toys also encourage problem solving and perseverance.
If you’ve ever learned to play a musical instrument like guitar for example, you now know that what seemed impossible when you started became second nature the longer you practiced and kept plugging away. Construction and building type games for toddlers are where they will develop that persistence and ability to keep going until they master the task they set out to do. Kids become so fascinated with the magic of shapes and colors that they remain occupied and learning for hours on end. It’s a win win situation.Lauri Tall-Stacker Pegs Building Set
