It could be a classic, familiar tale. Or an all-new adventure with heroes and villains, comedy and drama. You’ve seen how your child responds—getting caught up in the story, wondering what will happen next, taking charge and helping events along. With good stories, growing imaginations and themed toys, kids can see how they fit into the world. They get a chance to re-create real-life situations, learning about themselves and others. They develop thinking and problem-solving skills. And so much more.
It’s a great age, this “pre-cool” period. Your child wants action and adventure—to feel like a big kid. But you’re careful about what they play with—and probably looking for toys that encourage imagination as well as being fun!
As imagination starts to soar, kids are fascinated with themes that let them build on something familiar, taking the adventure to new levels with their own creative touches. For a child, inventing stories as you play offers a way to express how you’re feeling and discover your sense of self.
