Building toys have considerable cognitive and motor advantages for children of all ages. In addition to the academic benefits, playing with construction toys is inventive and just plain fun!
Construction play allows children to think creatively, problem solve, use hand-eye coordination and develop their spatial abilities. But, construction play isn’t only for young kids. A study by Oostermeijer and Richardson found a link between tweens and early adolescents engaging in construction play and superior performance on tests involving spatial skill and mathematics. And of course, as we continue to learn as adults, employees, such as engineers, architects, scientists, designers (and then some) continue to construct models to master the structures they’re creating.
