Toys create friendship and turn ordinary moments of playtime into special memories. It is during the early years that the foundation of social skills and interpersonal relationships gets built.
Simba Toys encompasses many such games and toys that can be played in groups. These are fun past-times for family, siblings and kids to enjoy together.
Here are some popular games from Simba and their social benefits:
- Sharing, Caring and Empathy
From 24 months onwards, kids begin to understand and express love, trust and affection towards family, siblings and all those they meet. By sharing toys during play they learn to be giving. This helps them make friends, care for their feelings and also reduces their “social anxiety”. They also stop clinging to caregivers as their companions increase. These qualities of caring & sharing help build a fairly friendly child.
- Role-playing & Expressiveness
Role-playing games with dolls helps babies express their emotions about self and loved ones. The child slowly builds his/her social identity and learns more about the various aspects of everyday life. Toys are especially useful for introverted kids to step out of their comfort zone.
3. Healthy Competition, Strategy and Sportsmanship
Playing with others helps a child develop qualities of a sportsman who can handle winning or losing with ease. He/she also learns to strategize, become a leader and also harmoniously play with others. It’s also a great way to release physical and emotional energy in a healthy manner.
4. Siblings & Family Bonding
Play-time gives kids a fun chance to connect with siblings, parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles and all other members of the family. There’s a feeling of one-ness, joy and love that makes the family stronger as a unit.
5. Builds Confidence, Creativity & Compassion
Playing with toys helps artistic kids express themselves with ease and build confidence. Children also learn to be more compassionate towards a new child entering a group. Playing together helps kids come up with more ideas, creative solutions and innovations.
As they say, the more the merrier 🙂
