This is a wooden block set for children 6 months to 1 and a half years of age. This set is the most optimal and universal tool for the little ones development. It contains 9 blocks (red, yellow, green and blue), in dimensions 3x3 cm (3x1.18 inches), painted with ecological colours (red, yellow, green and blue). One of which has a wooden texture with a hand painted picture in the middle.
It is recommended to introduce the baby with these blocks from about 6 months of age - from the moment when the baby is able to hold a small object in his hands. Just by holding the blocks in hand, the effect will already start - the special size of these blocks will help to open up the palm.
For infants and toddlers, we recommend choosing toys in primary colours. In order for the little one to feel the difference between texture in different materials, experts recommend offering the child wooden blocks.
When presenting a block to the little one, you can already name the colour of the given block. This information remains in the baby's memory which helps the child to start learning colours at a very young age.
As the baby learns to sit, the opportunities of ways to play expand. Parents can build simple structures such as towers. Usually the baby pushes over the buildings and is excited about it, because it is a discovery for him: the tower was just there, but now it is not! This is also a way how the child tries to explore the world. One should not worry about the baby tossing the cubes. This is how the understanding of causation is formed - I took it, dropped it, made a noise, and I no longer have things in my hand. To encourage the little one to crawl, parents can build towers of cubes further away from the child, saying - “Come closer… and closer… almost there!”
At about the age of one, it would be desirable for the child to already be able to stack 4 blocks on top of each other. Parents should demonstrate such tower-building skills tirelessly - over and over again. And when the little one already manages to stack two blocks on top of each other, the parents show genuine joy about their baby's achievements. So - step by step, the tower will "grow" quite high. Such activities develop movement coordination, a sense of balance, concentration, dedication and patience. It also grants great joy about the big achievements.
When building towers is no longer difficult, there is a new challenge - now all of the blocks have to be put back in the frame.
At the age of about a year and a half, the baby can sort the given cubes by colour. Put the blue cube over the blue cube, the red one over the red cube, etc.
While playing with blocks, a child develops:
* sight, touch and hearing at the same time,
* accuracy of grip and hand movements,
* static sense of balance,
* dimensional orientation,
* eye to hand cooperation
* logical thinking
* ability to systematize
