Play is an important part of a child’s physical and mental development.
Little Tikes recognises that play is not just important for children but imperative to all aspects of life and is a proven stress buster for adults too. A pivotal part of stimulating the imagination, play can support in solving problems and boosting creativity.
Little Tikes is passionate about play and believes there is no right or wrong way to explore little ones’ imagination. We believe play enhances and develops their creativity and dexterity, as well as physical, cognitive and emotional strength. Play has been demonstrated to enable children to explore and challenge different types of play in their own imagination bubble.
Although it has wonderful cognitive benefits, it’s important to remember that pretend play is often physical and is a great way for children to stay active, exercise and develop their motor skills too. We like to encourage play at all ages – from babies to toddlers and children aged five years and over.
Allow our Little Tikes toys to be the perfect play partner between you and your child when creating those magical, memorable moments. Here, we take a look at the best ones for your child’s development.
