The Educational Benefits of Imaginit Toys
Playing with Imaginit's magnetic construction toys have numerous benefits for child development. Not only are they a lot of fun to play with but they held children develop a huge variety of skills and abilities which will help prepare children for the future. Our toys give children the opportunity to design imaginary things based on their own ideas and then work towards their construction goals. Below are just some of the educational benefits of playing with our blocks.
Encourage Social Development
A scientific study by Fisher (1999) showed that playing with construction toys and pretend play improves children's cognitive-linguistic and social affective skills. Children who play together with construction toys learn how to solve problems together improving their social and language skills.
Magnetic building block toys allow children to create whatever they can imagine in their own fantasy worlds. Once their construction is finished prentend play and storytelling begins. Using imagination boost cognitive, academic & social growth.
Improve Mathematics & Numeracy
Play with complex construction toys predicts children's mathematical acheivement in later schooling. According to a study by Wolfgang, Stannard & Jones (2001) children who had learn more sophisticated use of construction toys had better grades and took more mathematics courses as teenagers.
Teach Focus & Patience
To be sucessful with more complex designs children need to work slowly and carefully, planning as they do so. They may suffer setbacks and will need to start again. Building blocks give children a safe place learn to cope with adversity and develop concentration.
Develop Problem Solving Skills
According to a study by Pepler & Ross (1981) children who play with construction toys perform better at problem solving and show more creativity. This is particulary true of divergent toys which have multiple solutions to each problem.
Hone Fine Motor Skills
Building with magnetic blocks gives children valuable skills in grasping, manipulation and hand eye co-ordination. Children who don't develop these fine motor skills can have trouble eating, writing and getting dressed on their own.
Support your Child with Imaginit
Magnetic building block toys support full brain development. We encourange adults to take the time to learn how to maximise children's play and learning.
Brain Support. Imiginit's toys support full brain development.
Traditional theory splits the brain into left side (problem solving) and right side (creativity). Psychologists studying intelligence are learning that it is the connections between these sides that is important. Imaginit's toys engage both left and right side brain development, strengthening the connection between the two.
Children First. Support your child in play to maximise the benefits.

Children learn through play. As a parent or carer you cannot learn for them. Offering a safe and engaging play environment where children can explore and create is vital. Let children follow their imagination and support them without interruption until they request your feedback or help. Your presence is often enough to make children feel safe and positive in play.
