DESIGN PROBLEM - EDUCATIONAL TOY

V. Ryan 2006 - 2009

 

Working parents often find that they are so busy that they have little time to spend with their children. Often children are left to occupy their own time by watching television. Research has found that children left to occupy their own time develop learning skills much more slowly than those who play with educational toys.
It has been found that children who regularly play with educational toys develop reading skills, hand eye coordination skills and many more. When young children master these skills it usually leads to greater progress at school. However, there is only a small range of quality educational toys available in the shops at this point in time. Companies designing and making toys often forget that learning through play is very important. They tend to think about sales of their products before their educational value.
