It is generally believed that artistic play can aid in accelerating the child’s development, but did you know that playing with musical toys even before they walk or talk can benefit the development of your child?
Musical instruments play a pivotal role not only in early child development but there are educational benefits even as children grow older. According to recent studies, introducing musical toys to children at a young age can have a positive influence in a child's growth and development. Research also reveals that babies that interact with musical activities communicate better and have a higher brain function. Children who have musical training or are regularly involved with musical activities have better educational outcomes in a range of cognitive abilities such as language, maths and reasoning.
Rattles, shaker or maracas, are a perfect first music instrument. The sounds and the colours are sure to get your baby’s attention and at Kids Music Toys we have ones that are completely safe to use even for infants. They are light-weight, easy to grip. Deigns range from egg shaped to those with handles, allowing opportunity for children to easily manipulate and learn cause and effect.
Kids are fascinated by the colours, shapes and sounds of many simple musical instruments. Maracas, drums, bells, triangles and sticks are amongst their favourites. There are many musical aids as well such as scarves and ribbons to encourage and enhance the musical experience. Enrolling your child into early childhood music courses can do wonders to widen the musical experience.
While musical toys are a joy for the kids, parents and older siblings enjoy playing with these too. Making music as a family is a way to share both the enjoyment and the benefits of musical instruments and music making. Become one amongst the kids, keep the rhythm with a piano, drum or any other instrument.
