Chil­dren love to be dis­tract­ed from toys and explore the objects around them: flip­ping pages in a book, draw­ing scrib­bles with felt-tip pens or bit­ing off but­tons on the remote con­trol. Dif­fer­ent tex­tures, pic­tures and shapes attract the atten­tion of the child, and he stud­ies the object he likes in acces­si­ble ways. The kid strikes with a felt-tip pen and watch­es how the pic­ture changes. Puts a toy in his mouth and finds out what sen­sa­tions this or that mate­r­i­al caus­es. And what hap­pens if you invite the baby to play with mov­ing pic­tures and puz­zles?

Edu­ca­tion­al toy books with mov­able ele­ments

Toy books with mov­able ele­ments cap­ti­vate the child and help par­ents dis­tract the baby from dam­ag­ing the fur­ni­ture. How are they arranged and why are they attrac­tive to the baby?

While play­ing with Mov­ing Pic­tures and Mov­ing Puz­zles, the child moves the pic­tures back and forth or puts togeth­er a puz­zle to meet a new char­ac­ter. On each page, the child is offered a small task: help the chee­tah win the race, assem­ble a pic­ture with a croc­o­dile or a hip­popota­mus in parts. In Mov­ing Pic­tures, each task is accom­pa­nied by short cap­tions with the names of char­ac­ters that help the child get to know new ani­mals or unfa­mil­iar objects. Pic­tures in “Mov­ing puz­zles” are accom­pa­nied by small rhymes: qua­trains are eas­i­ly per­ceived by ear and help the child quick­ly remem­ber the names of ani­mals.

Choos­ing a durable book

Both toy books are made of thick card­board, and all mov­ing parts are secure­ly fixed to the pages. The child will be able to test the mov­able book for strength as many times as he likes: the toy book will not tear, even if you throw it on the floor, pull hard or start to gnaw.

Devel­op fine motor skills and mind­ful­ness

Mov­ing the pic­tures with the right or left hand, the child devel­ops fine motor skills and trans­mits impuls­es from the fin­gers to the cere­bral hemi­spheres. The kid per­forms tasks togeth­er with the heroes of the book and at the same time trains mem­o­ry and inge­nu­ity. In puz­zle games, the child needs to col­lect the miss­ing pieces of the pic­ture and match them with the out­line on the clue. The task asks to be care­ful: the child needs to clear­ly move every detail in order to com­bine the con­tours and get the right pic­ture. Such mechan­ics trains the eye and coor­di­na­tion of the baby’s move­ments, and with each game the pic­ture is col­lect­ed faster.

Expand­ing hori­zons and cre­ative think­ing

Chil­dren like to learn new things, mem­o­rize unfa­mil­iar ani­mals and their habi­tats. The mov­able toy book is a small album for get­ting to know a hip­po, a par­rot, a lion cub, an octo­pus and oth­er fun­ny char­ac­ters. To intro­duce the baby to the ani­mal, the moth­er points to the page and reads the name of the hero aloud. Then the moth­er reads the task to the baby or a poem on the next page.

With the help of a par­ent, the child learns what kind of ani­mals set­tled in the book and what their names are. Read­ing poems com­ple­ments the image of the ani­mal in the baby’s head and helps devel­op cre­ative think­ing.

How to choose the right book

In the series “Mov­ing Pic­tures” and “Mov­ing Puz­zles” there are books on var­i­ous top­ics that the baby will like. With the help of a toy book, the child will go on a sea adven­ture, meet farm ani­mals and pets, fly in a hot air bal­loon, go to the zoo and play with wild ani­mals.

The book will inter­est the kid even before get­ting acquaint­ed with the tasks: mov­ing ele­ments are built into each cov­er that you just want to twist. Bright images on the pages will help the child focus on the task and be less dis­tract­ed by for­eign objects dur­ing the game.

Treat your lit­tle one with a mov­ing book and help your lit­tle one explore the world around them.
