While marble rollers are for children over 3 years of age we do have a great one for the real little tykes! This one is great for even a one year old but older ones love it too. It comes with 12 large colored wooden balls and they zip down the roller and stay in the wooden tray. We are the only store that carries this item and there have been so many little kids who enjoy this game. The balls are painted with safe non toxic paint and come in red orange yellow green blue and purple. These also help children recognize colors.
Another type of building toy that you might be interested in is a classic wooden marble run. Your child will build a ramp and a slide for a marble that will then roll down. While of course you should always remember to monitor a child who is playing with a small object this will be a great way for your child to learn about things like force and cause and effect not to mention he or she will learn more about manipulation and how to work towards a goal. Youll find that this will keep your tyke entertained for hours far away from the television and DVD player!
Older children are great at playing pretend. A great toy for kids of this age are dress up clothes. Little girls like to dress up as their favorite princess and pretend they are going to marry a handsome prince. Little Adventures has a great line of princess dress up costumes from Sleeping Beauty to Belle and best of all they are machine washable and comfortable to wear and wont itch your child. Little boys usually like to dress up as race car drivers or superheroes. Some may like to dress up like Harry Potter a wizard or a prince. Make sure you find a good quality costume that wont fall apart. Plastic costumes are out they fall apart or break after one or two wears.
Many people are turning to toys which are more natural and traditional to give children an understanding of the craft and effort gone into producing them. Wooden toys are also very often of high quality and handmade. Parents also like children to play with similar types of toys that they grew up with as many of them can also be educational. When buying a Christmas or birthday present for a younger member of the family consider giving wooden toys as gifts.
Though you might not immediately see it construction toys also allow children to be creative. Think about a small child building a house with you. When the house is done you can always ask the child who he or she thinks lives there. Many parents are a little confused as to how to play with their children especially as those children get older and you will soon see that if you have something to work with like building construction toys you will be able to form a rapport with them.
