Children & Their Culture - Why Play, Toys, and Games are Important

Dr. Toy

Abstract


The potential to improve the learning, reading, and experiential processes through play, toys, and games is great. Understanding the toy selection process, the proper use of toys and games as play products, and how these tools can positively impact the learning, reading, math, science and experiential processes is a goal worth pursuing.

Play provides a special opportunity to gain new insights about the child.
