More Early Learning Advice: Through early learning toys, children learn about their world, themselves, and others. Choosing toys that appeal to them and foster their learning helps make the most of their early development. Early learning toys help children figure out how things work, how to cooperate with others, solve problems and build muscle control, among other things. It is good to have a variety of toys – some that help develop specific skills like math, a love of reading, vocabulary, and others that promote the development of the whole child. This combination will ensure the youngster will be ready to begin kindergarten.
