All toys are categorised based on the type of play and skills they encourage.
- Early Learning
A is for activity
These toys develop gross motor skills. Gross motor skills are large movements involving arm, leg, or feet muscles, or the entire body. Crawling, running, catching a ball and jumping all require gross motor skills.
Toys that can develop these skills include balls, bean bags, bikes and push- or pull-along toys.
C is for coordination
These toys develop fine motor skills and hand-eye coordination. Examples include threading toys, construction toys, blocks, Duplo, shape sorters, lacing toys, hammer toys, and mazes. Puzzles also develop coordination, but have their own category to make browsing easier.
E is for Early Learning
These toys are specifically for babies and younger children up to the age of 18 months. Early Learning toys include baby gyms, walkers and musical response toys.
G is for Games
These toys include indoor games, such as dominoes and board games, many of which involve the whole family.
I is for Imaginative
These toys are designed to encourage self-expression, imaginative play and role-playing. Examples include animal figures, puppets, dress-ups, model play sets and musical instruments.
P is for Puzzles
Belonging to the overarching category of Coordination, puzzles encourage fine motor skills and hand-eye coordination. They can also be a great family activity on a rainy day!
