WOW, WOW, WOW. This is an awesome and brilliant educational toy and the Play For Future baby garden toy has so much to offer.
I gave this to my 2 year old great Niece and is something that her little brother of 13 months will grow into and learn from himself.
The awesome bright and bold coloured and accessories make it especially great from a learning and educational perspective. As well as learning about the items within the toy itself, they are also able to learn about colours, shapes and the actual contents themselves which are as follows:-
4. Daisy flower
6. Tulip flower
Not only does this toy and the accessories have all the bright and bold colours which really do stand out, they are especially great for a child’s development. I made sure I encouraged my great niece and great nephew to learn the colours and what each of the items are by playing with them from cognitive development perspective, especially with my great niece. Here are some examples used that I would say:-
‘Where is the carrot’
‘Can you give me the white flower’
‘Show me the tulip
‘The carrot is orange and yellow’
‘Show me the white radish’
‘Show me the pink colours’
‘Show me the green colours’
I would also make sure I incorporated all the above and more by making up stories. All the items within this toy is particularly great for sensory development; hand and eye co-ordination and learning from a visual perspective too. This allows them to look, touch and feel which is very important in a child’s development.
I love the fact that this is very easy to clean. I soak everything in warm water with very little washing up liquid and made sure they were thoroughly rinsed off. I found the best way to rinse them was to use a metal colander, that way the water would run away from the blocks as opposed to rinsing them in bowl of water which they would just sit in.
It does show that each of the 6 items come apart, these were particularly easy with the sunflower, tulip and daisy, however, the onion, carrot and radish was very hard. I never managed to take these apart as I did not want to run the risk of damaging or breaking them. Taking apart and putting back together is a great way for a child’s development in order to take things apart and put them back together again. I hope over time, that I can get the others apart in order for them to learn how to take them apart and put them back together again for themselves.
I was also absolutely bowled over to learn that all of this toy and accessories was made from 100% recycled plastic.
Suitable for 6-36 months
