Will These Be The Next Big Building Blocks For Children? #KIDOY

I've partnered with KIDOY to start a conversation about the importance of open-ended play with children. All opinions are my own.


While doing research for a parenting app I was on the writing team for, I learned that, "open-ended toys," where the very best toy a toddler could play with. According toColleen D. Multari, LMSW, director of early learning at The Early Years Institute in Plainview, NY:
"Open-ended toys result in open-ended play. This type of play can evolve over time while also encouraging children to create and problem-solve as they explore the world around them. Open-ended play with peers encourages social development and social interaction while also developing cognitive skills. Children have to discuss and negotiate how to use the multipurpose toy. The social and developmental gains made by open-ended play far exceed those made by directed play."  
Research on the benefits of open-ended play is endless. I'm always on the lookout for new and interesting ways to incorporate open-ended toys or creativity.  So when the inventor of the KIDOY Dynamic Building Blocks reached out about my thoughts on a toy he had invented, that REALLY encourages open-ended play, I said Show me...



I LOVE the bendy and curvy ability. The possibilities are endless!
