If the above quote was told to a toddler, he would certainly bring the house down! And rightly so, because children can never stop exploring.
To channelize their energy and curiosity, we must provide them with the right tools. It is amazing to see how quickly children grasp these basic life skills when taught through the method.
Here’s my compilation of Toys that should be introduced to teach basic Life Skills amongst children:
A board containing simple daily household items like lock, switch, hinges, velcro, zip, amongst other things. Making the curious mind explore those places, that are usually forbidden for a toddler.
Something I wish I’d learned more as a child, connecting with nature through play is fascinating and important for children. It allows them to explore and consolidate things they experience and learn in real life.
To further your child’s outdoor education, encourage him or her to garden next to you, digging holes for seeds or pulling weeds. Also, spend time commenting on the things you see and discuss the ways plants grow.

Children love to imitate! Which is why Kitchen Sets are a huge hit amongst them because much of our life revolves around food, procuring it, preparation, and cleaning after meals.
Chopping, stirring, moving play food from one container to another, and many more important motor skills are required in kitchen play. Play kitchens are also great learning toys because they encourage children to practice planning skills as they prepare “meals.”
Apart from the regular Kitchen Sets, we now have a Pretend Play Toys to choose from. Listing my top picks below:
There’s something about a hammer, nut bolt and screw that attracts a child! An extremely popular toddler and preschool toy, a pretend Workbench / Toolkit Toy gives your child many ways to explore and affect the world. Younger children can see the effects of a nail moving because of a hammer or learn about stability from stacking blocks. Older children move on to using screwdrivers and wrenches, finding the correct tool for the job and using it carefully.
To encourage cleanliness early, there are many learning toys that are small versions of regular cleaning supplies. These include brooms, mops, vacuums, and more. If you would prefer not to spend money on toy cleaning supplies, you can also give your child his or her own set of the supplies that you already use. A caddy full of sponges, brushes, rags, spray bottles, and gloves will help your child feel useful and included!
This is just a small list of such toys, other example include a Shopper’s Trolley , Barber Playset, Sock Twin colors, Doctor Set, etc. So go ahead and invest in Learning Toys that prepare your children for the future. While doing so, make sure your child plays with toys that are Plastic-Free, Non-Toxic and Safe.
