Why kids should play with building blocks

Beautifully created, open-ended toys, like these building blocks from Pips & Moo have the ability to allow your child to use their imagination to create anything.
The blocks can be anything from people to the tallest building.
Benefits of building with blocks 
Open-ended play supports a child’s development, including social-emotional, cognitive, language, and large & fine motor skills.
More importantly, it also builds many essential skills during play
Skills such as:
  • problem-solving,
  • critical thinking,
  • risk-taking,
  • decision making
  • and teamwork
Building with blocks, like these from Pips and Moo, also encourages children to construct buildings or structures.
As a child constructs his building he also develops his creativity and expands his imagination as he creates his fantasy world.
This will prepare him to face real-world challenges and problems that require unique solutions as he grows.
