Benefits of building toys and kits for kids
There are so many benefits of building based toys and kits for children. Most obviously, working with building blocks and other kinds of building kits is extremely beneficial for kids' hand-eye coordination and their spatial reasoning. It has also been shown that these sorts of games and toys are good for the development of cognitive flexibility. This means that those who have played with building kits will be able to direct their focus towards different jobs whilst not forgetting the central aim. This ability not to lose focus when being presented with different interrelated tasks is itself a key skill to have all throughout school.
Kits for all ages
There are construction kits here which are great for the little ones from 4 years and above. Take a look for instance at the plastic free pirate island playsets and the 3D fairytale castles. For older children of 8 years and above, you will see that there are also lots of fun creations, such as the Zig and Go construction kits. These allow kids to create their own roller coaster of a race track. By connecting 45 re-arrangeable pieces, the little car and ball can zoom up ramps, do loop the loops and spin around in stripy spirals.
