Building Toys help in learning and education
Generations have played with construction sets and ABC cubes and they’re still around, as popular as ever. Building blocks never grow old because they’re reusable and provide countless hours of fun. Lego not only allow children to use their imagination freely but teach them about geometrical shapes, balance, how much weight can a structure hold – stuff teachers spend hours explaining to older kids. Have you ever watched a child build a tower out of Lego bricks to see how tall it can get and then watch it fall, spreading tiny pieces all over the room? It’s the sort of thing architects and engineers worry about.
Some kids grow so passionate about Legos they pester their parents for additional sets, engines, and wheels which they use to build vehicles of their own design. They try and fail until they get them to work. These children playing on the floor are the next generation of inventors, those who will build tomorrow’s world.
ABC cubes aren’t as versatile as Legos, but they serve an essential purpose – introducing kids to the alphabet and helping them to understand how words are formed. Many two or three years old kids learn how to spell this way: C-A-T! For these kids, the first year in school will be much easier and they will learn how to read at an earlier age than kids who didn’t have this sort of toy.
