Choosing the right toys for children over the age of one can be challenging, as the child's needs and abilities change quickly. It is important to choose toys that will support the child's development and bring them joy. In this blog article, we will share four great alternatives to traditional toys.
What toys for children from 1 year old?
The first toy we would like to introduce is the Pikler Triangle. This popular toy is designed to develop fine motor skills, body coordination and independence. It is a rung construction made of wood, in the shape of a triangle. It allows children to engage in a variety of activities, such as climbing, sliding and balancing. It is safe, stable and sturdily built and can be used by children between the ages of 8 months and 7 years. It is wonderful to watch as children climb on the Pikler Triangle and learn about their skills through a variety of climbing games.
Another great toy for children over the age of one is a music set. Musical activities can develop fine motor skills, concentration and creativity. A simple set of drums, xylophones or sound bars can encourage children to make music and explore their musicality.
Building blocks are another great toy for children one year and older. They help develop fine motor skills and spatial imagination. There are many different types of building blocks, from wooden blocks to softer, safer blocks for younger children. Building blocks can also be used as open-ended toys, as children can put them together and combine them in countless ways.
One last toy we recommend is a door toy. This type of toy hangs on the inside of a door and provides many opportunities for learning and play, such as buttons, switches, lights, and sounds. They are great for children who are just starting to walk and develop their fine motor skills and coordination.
Overall, there are many great alternatives to traditional toys for children over the age of one. The Pikler Triangle, the music set, and the building blocks are just a few examples of wonderful toys for children 1 year and older. They promote the development of the child and provide educational fun.
