This activity trains the sensory and motor nerves at once. They will practice recognizing shapes, developing their creativity in arranging sand into something.

2. Play dough

Toys that can be formed freely are most suitable for sharpening children's motor skills. As parents, you must try fisherTiP. FisherTip is a high quality product which made in Germany and produced from potatoes grown on domestic farm. It is 100% biodegradable.

3. Color stamp

Playing color stamps can be another way to stimulate children's creativity. Itis cheap and easy, parents just need to prepare white cardboard and food coloring.

Dissolve food coloring with water. Give an example to the little one by dipping your hand in the liquid color, then make a stamp on the cardboard.

Not only hand stamp, try the other parts of the body such as feet, fingers, or use other objects such as banana and tree trunk. Banana stem will produce a unique shape.

5. Arrange the shapes

Before introducing your baby to lego, try to teach them using a bigger size of toys, like soft blocks, or you also can use a simple tools. Arrange small boxes of used drugs or food packaging for example.

But you need to remember to prepare at least several different forms. You can take advantage of plastic bowls and different size of glasses. He will slowly recognize what size is. If they already feel bored with simple tools, then it is the time for soft blocks. Don’t forget to choose a soft block with attractive shape and colors.

6. Puppet plays

Whose little kid doesn't like to play dolls? Every babies must have at least 1 doll at home. Yups, usually parents use it to practice their communication skills.

Dolls are moved followed by voices from Daddy and Mommy, as if the doll itself is speaking. From this activity children learns to recognize sounds. Well, after a bit later, try to let him direct the puppet show himself.

Use the doll at home, hold one for you and give one more for the little one. Invite children to talk through dolls, after a while they will understand and try to play alone.

2. Durability: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ (5/5 stars)

Toddlers always love to put their toys to the test, throw it, bite it, step on it, crash it. Durability is very important!! With WonChi’s material, you will not doubt its durability.

3. Material: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ (4/5 stars)

There are many different types of materials, wood, plastic, cardboard, magnetic, foam. WonChi using TPR, as material and it is very good, the building blocks have a taste of vanilla, the same taste as the current vanilla soothie.

According to WonChi designer's, if they found out its edges were not smooth enough when WonChi soft blocks are manufactured, they are specially refined it one by one. They will not let it go the the market if they’re find out the quality was not good enough..

4. Purpose: ⭐️⭐️⭐️ (3/5 stars)

If you are hoping to get more of an educational toy, look for blocks that have different colors, letters, shapes, or numbers on them. I hope WonChi could have more combination, not only 40 and 120 pieces or even come with different colors.

5. Price: ⭐️⭐️⭐️ (3/5 stars)

TPR shows advantages typical of both rubbery materials and plastic materials, TPR materials have the potential to be recyclable since they can be molded, extruded and reused like plastics That is why WonChi price a bit high.
