Baby & toddler play items are an important part of furnishings for your child. Baby play can range from the visual stimulus provided by mobiles, nursery pictures or brightly colored blankets and sheets, to easy manipulatives that make a noise when poked, pushed, or banged. Toddler items might include child-sized furniture, make-believe kitchen sets, manipulatives, dolls, functional cleaning items such as a broom and dustpan. Play is a child’s work. It is how he or she learns to manipulate and interact with his or her world. Once treated as small adults, thanks to psychologists and brain specialists, we now know that play is essential to growth.
