Why are Open-Ended Toys Important? | GrapplerTodd | Montessori Wooden Toys | Toys for Kids

Open-ended toys boost a child's creativity and let them use their cognitive skills to form their own ideas and thoughts. Through open-ended toys, children have an option to explore, test ideas and engage in new concepts. In other toys, there is only one way to play with them which restricts a child from using their own imagination. Open-ended toys also help develop a child's fine motor, gross motor skills, and hand-eye coordination, e.g toddler dressing frames. Since there is no right or wrong way to play, open-ended toys help children be calm and play without rules or expectations.
