Maze Puzzles Promote Cognitive Development In Children

maze puzzlesPuzzle solving activities start at a very early age and continue as children mature. Solving a jigsaw puzzle will spark an interest in other types of problem solving tasks such as crosswords or word puzzles. A jigsaw puzzle provides entertainment and promotes the cognitive development of children of all ages. These skills are important in many other areas of the child’s life. As kids get older, solving puzzle games will help develop analytical skills, communication, logic and attention to details.

Puzzle solving improves a child’s problem solving and reasoning skills.  While solving a jigsaw puzzle the child is repeatedly presented with a problem of how to make a particular piece fit into the overall puzzle.  Being successful in solving this problem can give a child the confidence to attempt more challenging puzzles.  An example of the cognitive benefit of puzzles is the Parrot Wall Panel which boasts adorable artwork of a squawking parrot perched on top of the highly educational Learn the Alphabet.  Kids will learn their ABC’s as they play with this and other maze puzzles which are available with animal themes, numbers and more.

Maze Games Provide A Time Of Fun And Development

maze gamesPreschool toys are designed for toddlers old enough to start learning basics like colors, numbers and letters.  Bright colors and bold patterns get the attention of kids and bulky designs are easy for them to manipulate.  Games such as puzzles and magnetic maze games are great for developing problem solving skills and turn taking.  They are designed for eye-hand coordination and fine motor skills as well.

Developmental toys entice and nourish a toddler’s developing brain and personality.  Many toys encourage fine motor skills, which are needed for developing small muscles of the fingers and hands to aid the child in handwriting, art, tying shoes and dressing himself. These skills encourage independence and self confidence.  Roller Coaster bead and wire maze toys encourage cooperative play with other children.  They will all benefit when their play time with magnetic maze games is a time of fun and development for them.

magnetic travel USA mapWouldn’t it be nice if your child could learn geography in a fun and interesting way?  Children learn from parents, relatives and friends about the local geography where they live, and when school starts, the world gets bigger.  Children will be drilled and tested on states, their capitals and locations or regions on a map once they reach a certain grade level in school.

A unique way for kids to travel and learn the 50 states is offered by the magnetic travel USA map.  This is a sensory adventure toy and perfect for lobbies and waiting rooms.  As children try out different routes across the country their visual tracking and fine motor skills are challenged while promoting eye-hand coordination.  Kids use the magnetic wands to move the colored balls around the state borders to get from one destination to another.  This impressive magnetic travel USA map is enjoyed in singular play as well as group play.

Magnetic Train Mazes Develop Fine Motor Skills

Wednesday, July 2, 2014
posted by Wilma

magnetic train mazesKeeping up with a toddler’s energy and needs is a full time job as children of this age are curious to learn from all they come into contact with.  There are educational toys to nourish a toddler’s developing brain and personality.  Children need to safely explore and discover new things because they learn by testing and touching things.  Children at this age develop a sense of self, wanting to keep their toys around them.  Their favorite word is “mine” at this point!

Toddlers enjoy toys that have wheels and compartments.  They love to put their toys in the cargo areas and pull them around wherever they go.  They are old enough to start learning basics like colors, numbers and letters.  Bright colors and bold patterns get the attention of the child.  Many of these toys encourage fine motor skills such as activity tables which require pushing, pulling, twisting and manipulating.  Train tables, magnetic activity tables, and “roller coaster” bead and wire maze toys are also great for developing fine motor skills and encouraging cooperative play with other children.  Magnetic train mazes are great for teaching turn taking and problem solving in preschool games.

magnetic mazesMagnetic maze toys are ideal for children who have passed their third birthday up through preschool age.  Essentially these maze toys use a magnetic pointer to let a child pick up a small metal ball and guide it around the track.  This will encourage toddlers to think critically and to question why the world works the way it does.  Magnetic maze toys are a great place to start to teach a child fine motor control and patience.

Maze toys and manipulative mazes help a child with his hand-eye coordination and will increase his ability to use fine motor control and visual tracking.  In addition, this is a toy that can be played with alone or in company with other children.  Becoming more patient and more goal-oriented will serve a child well as he enters school.   Because of their quiet design and comfortable size, magnetic mazes serve as an ideal travel toy.
