The one thing that we are not short of at KidsPlaySets.com.au are smiles. We make children (and their grown-ups) happy every day and there is something special about seeing your little one pretend to cook you a meal or build you something which is totally adorable. But why do kids love Play Sets so much? You might be surprised to know that a lot of thought has gone into why kids choose the toys they do and it makes for really interesting reading. The following are some of the key considerations as to why it turns out that Play Sets are so popular with kids and so much fun.
Children want to learn while they play. (yeah, they really do)
It turns out that encouraging exposure to learning based activities early in a child’s life is easily accomplished by choosing toys which challenge kids and promote the active development of motor and cognitive skills. Children learn both the skills they need to develop during play but also begin to recognize and internalize environmental social cues. In plain English, when kids play with Play Sets, they learn how to play but also how to engage and enjoy other types of physically new activities. This type of learning stimulates the child and provides excitement about how they can continue to develop this new set of skills. They will want to try new activities as their confidence grows. At KidsPlaySets.com.au Australia’s #1 Kids Play Set retailer, we have Play Sets for every stage of your child’s development, from building blocks, to pretend play to outdoor sporting and family games. Each type of play provides a new set of physical challenges and encourages your little one to explore and grow. Which is exactly what they want.
Play Sets check all the child’s boxes for fun, and the parent’s box for development.
Play Sets engage your child’s senses, stimulates their imagination and encourages them to interact with others. This experience is what children need and enjoy. For parents, the same set of criteria apply but we need to add in a few extra. Let’s start with Trust. A strong trust in others creates the foundation on which all other traits rest. Giving your child a new experience which is supervised, safe and fun for them creates a strong trust between parent and child. Next we introduce Patience. This is an important one. The old adage of “Good things come to those who wait” really applies when learning a new motor or cognitive skill. In the case of a play set, it’s both motor and cognitive. Teaching your child to be patient as they develop the skills to pretend play sets a pattern for life and importantly, for those critical early learning years at kindergarten and primary school. Now we move onto Responsibility. Allowing them to play by themselves and have ownership of their play set represents both a step for you the parent but also for your child. If they aren’t responsible, then it’s very likely the play set won’t make another appearance for some time. Learning to be responsible with this new toy is yet another milestone in your child’s development. We are definitely going to include Empathy in this mix. Empathy is often overlooked and sometimes challenging for parents to actively pass onto their children. Uniquely, empathy is always around when purchasing a play set for your little one. Why? Here’s why. Play Sets are usually expensive which means a lot of people simply cannot afford to have one. Imagine yourself at a home when some friends come over. Giving your child the opportunity to share and make that other child’s day teaches them empathy but also means that a new friend is always just around the corner. The last one in our mix is Self-Reliance, or Resilience. Your child is starring at their play set and not really sure where to start. Do you panic and show them how to play or do you sit back and watch them move through the stages of resilience, from anxiety through to success. At KidsPlaySets.com.au, we think letting your little one figure things out (in a completely supervised and safe environment) is important and yet another way to watch these special little people grow.
Checking boxes is important for both you and your child. The early developmental years of a child’s life represents a unique time where children and parents both want the same thing at the same time.
Play Sets encourage you and your child to spend time together. Spending time with you is all kids really want to do.
This is an activity that encourages families to spend time together. Play Sets provide a unique dynamic that encourage partnership, fosters trust and bonding and delivers a smile every time. Don’t believe me? Let’s walk through what happens the minute you purchase a play set from KidsPlaySets.com.au. Anticipation. Can you think of the times your children have been the most excited in their lives. It is likely this has been in anticipation of something very special approaching. No matter whether it’s Christmas, Easer or even a Birthday, kids love knowing that something special is on the way. Upon submitting your order with KidsPlaySets.com.au, you will receive a shipping confirmation showing you your Play Sets delivery progress to your front door. You can share this with your child and both actively check for updates and plan for when this very special package arrives. Construction. Here is a multiple choice question for you. Do you think your child does or doesn’t want to build the play set together with you? Exactly, enough said on this aspect. Playing. Keeping an eye on your child while using a play set is mandatory and ultimately encourages you to spend quality time with your little one. Got older children who think it’s boring to play with their younger siblings? We hear you. But you’d be surprised how many 10 year olds still cannot resist the urge to play with their little brother or sister on their new play set, trampoline or outdoor activity.
The anticipation, construction and playing aspects of a purchase from KidsPlaySets.com.au really do encourage you to spend quality time with your child. This is what all kids want and why we believe we hold the secret to making some very special memories.
