Toy wooden blocks for Mathematics
Machi provides an enticing and interactive means to learning about spatial awareness; a term referring to the ability of a person to judge where they are located in relation to the objects around them. As children play, they can create maps whether simple of complex about their world, viewing it from all angles. This provides a sound foundation for more detail mapping in the future.
Language development soars with Kiko Machi Tiny Town
Encourage the development of language by asking open-ended questions about your child’s design such as ‘can you please tell me about your city?’ or ‘why did you choose to place the trees there?’. Extend vocabulary by modelling the appropriate language, offering synonyms like ‘grand’ instead of ‘big’, adding adjectives- ‘solid’, ‘green’ or ‘icy’ and prepositions such as ‘next to’, ‘beside’ and ‘in front of’. You will be surprised at what words and phrases your child will absorb.
Magnetic Construction blocks for science and creativity
Block play naturally lends itself to learning about cause and effect, trial and error, hypothesis and experimentation, permitting children to discover concepts of shape, space, balance, weight and gravity. As the blocks are not confined to one position children can build, knock it down and start all over again. Extra materials and blocks can be added to create larger cities, letting your child’s imagination run wild for years to come.
