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.
