Music is a universal language and an integral part of human society and culture. It permeates our lives through radio, television, and theatre, forms part of our celebrations and is an instinctive way for many of us to express ourselves. Additionally, music has many developmental benefits for young children. Below are five reasons to consider musical toys for the babies and toddlers in your life.
It can be tricky for little fingers to master the coordination required to hold and play musical toys. Correctly striking a drum or xylophone, for example, requires proper handling of drum sticks, and good hand-eye coordination. A variety of wooden instrument toys of different sizes, shapes and types will encourage different muscle areas to strengthen and develop.
Babies and toddlers don’t always have the vocabulary they need to express themselves and can get frustrated when they are unable to verbalise their feelings. Musical baby and infant toys give children an opportunity to express however they are feeling in the moment and can help release any pent-up energy, as well as just being a whole lot of fun!
The world of music has so much to offer young children. Now that you know the benefits, pick up those bells and maracas and shake along with your little ones!
