Children need physical activity to keep fit and healthy, but did you know that it’s also one of the best ways to improve a child’s brain function? There is so much more happening in a child’s brain when they are moving around. Regular physical activity has been shown to have a positive impact on a child’s mental and emotional well-being, their ability to focus and concentrate, and can even help improve their sleep quality. We want to encourage kids to get outside, move and play. That's why we created Active Play – a range of indoor toys and games for kids that encourages active, imaginative play and helps develop physical, sensory and cognitive skills.
Active play enables kids to build their gross motor skills, emotional intelligence and physical agility. With active indoor play for preschoolers, kids between the ages of 2 and 5 years old, kids build creativity and confidence as they practice socializing and applying their knowledge of the world. Active play aids in developing balance,coordination, fine & gross motor skills and general fitness. It also boosts their concentration levels and enables them to build self esteem. When it comes to active indoor plays for toddlers and older kids, we adults can benefit from finding ways to incorporate these activities into our lives as well.

It's not always easy for us to come up with ideas of physical activities and play time for our kids and we always need some inspiration. This is where our move & learn toys come in handy.
What sets these toys apart from the rest?
Active Play toys doesn't simply mean "toys that move." The difference between active play and other toys is their ability to engage children in active participation. Many of the toys we sell incorporate multiple systems of development, such as motor skills, cognitive thinking, problem-solving, and discovery & exploration. The value of active play has been proven in early learning environments such as Montessori and Waldorf schools.
Our collection of Sensory Toys, Musical Toys, Wooden Toys, Pull-along toys, mini bowling pins , 3D puzzles, stacking toys, balance boards and more - these are just some of the toys you can use to develop countless early developmental skills in young children.
