It’s that time of year again when we shop for back to school supplies! While you're out purchasing the essentials for a brand new year of learning, don't forget about play! According to new research by Fundamentally Children, 75% of children are not getting enough play time!
Research on Playtime
“Our study found that children of all ages do not currently get a balanced approach to play, which is necessary for healthy holistic development,” said Dr. Amanda Gummer, child psychologist and founder of Fundamentally Children. “The need to raise greater awareness of the benefits of play has become increasingly obvious, as parents need to feel empowered to prioritize playtime activities.”
Put simply, play makes kids smarter! 🤓 In a world of screens and apps, research has found the best toys for a child's development are simple toys that promote play. This year's American Association of Pediatricians (AAP) report states the best toys for childhood development are those that spark imaginative play. Our educational and award-winning toys have been doing that for 30 years. They're trusted by parents and educators and used in a variety of ways, like S.T.E.M. learning, dioramas, play therapy and more.
Back to School Gift Sets
We’ve specially designed 3 Back To School Sets to inspire kids for their next year of learning! These toys will promote imaginative play and can double as great additions for upcoming school projects throughout the year.
