  1. 1. puslespil til børn, leg og lær, institutionslegetøj, køb legetøj- ABCLegAuthor: Thomsen Lucas An Educational Tool Like Puzzles for Children Enables them to Play and LearnPlaying with puzzles is not a new phenomenon. Both children and adults havebeen doing that for ages. Puzzles like the jigsaw ones are really entertaining. Inearlier days it was the wooden puzzles. Pictures were painted on pieces of woodand by means of a jigsaw the pieces used to be cut out. It was during 1760 thatthe first jigsaw puzzle was introduced commercially. The name of the man whocreated it was John Spilsbury. The puzzles for children created by him wereactually maps. Young children learning geography were greatly benefited by theseeducational puzzles. Those puzzles helped the children learn about countries andregions.Gradually modern jigsaw puzzles were made on a mass scale. Cardboard wasused as a raw material to make these puzzles. Later on plastic and foam wereused to make puzzles for children (in Danish puslespil til børn) These brightlycolored puzzles are great for children to play and learn. Since the pieces are largeit is easy to manipulate them particularly by young children. Nowadays you havethree dimensional wooden puzzles which are simple. The shapes that are usedtoday are either that of an animal or a human being.Children who play and learn (in Danish leg og lær) through puzzles developfaster. These educational tools aid children to improve their problem solving andmotor skills. Since these are available in the shape of animals, humans and otherinteresting forms children learn a lot about them. Not only children but adults too
  2. 2. play with puzzles. It is a sort of brain teaser. Today you have complicated puzzleswhich were introduced after 1990. The brain has several functions and playingwith puzzles help develop these functions. Puzzles help improve reasoning, logicalanalysis, numerical calculations and much more. Regarding the physical aspectthese puzzles help improve hand-eye coordination. These even impart spatialawareness.Puzzles are an integral part of the learning process. Children should be givenaccess to puzzles from an early age. Since subject specific puzzles are availablenowadays a child can get lot of valuable information from such puzzles. A lot ofchildren are spatial learners and they learn better when they handle objectswhich are related to the subject that they are learning. Since puzzles also haveimages these are also beneficial for children who are visual learners. Problemsolving can turn out to be a fun exercise with puzzles. When learning is funchildren enjoy and develop interest in it. Later on it helps to develop career skills. Toys Help Overcome Reading ProblemsEvery child is unique in their own way, and it is unreasonable to expect that allkids will have the same learning and grasping power. While some are quick intheir learning process, some face reading problems initially due to many internaland external factors. The main thing to do here is to be patient with the child,and adopt new methods to help them come to speed with the other children.More than that, it is important to help them get the confidence in themselveswhich they usually lose when they don’t succeed in their learning process. Onesuch was of helping out the child with reading problems is to buy toys for themthat are specially designed to help improve the cognitive abilities of the child.
  3. 3. Many people don’t know, but learning disabilities are highly prevalent in kids andare scientifically known as dyslexia. This is usually misconstrued by parents andthe society as ignorance on the part of the child. Whereas, it is nothing to do withthe child’s behavior as he is not able to perform because of under developedcognitive abilities. Instead of making things tough for the child, the parentsshould go for the scientifically proven methods to support the growth ofintelligence and learning power in the kid.When you buy toys that are helpful in overcoming the reading problems (inDanish læseproblemer), you should check the details on how the toy actuallyworks. This would help you in understanding the nature of the toy, and whether itwould be helpful in the development of your kids learning abilities. To make iteasier for the parents or guardians, the companies that manufacture toys forreading problems classify the toy in terms of age range and the particular aimbehind the game. Moreover, many of these games are highly interactive andrequire the involvement of the seniors and other children as well. Theinvolvement of a group of people helps the child in gaining confidence andlearning through exchange of ideas. This also makes the toy or game a lot morefun, apart from being informative and helpful.It is advisable that the parents should buy toys (in Danish køb legetøj) ofrudimentary and basic level in the beginning. Then once the kid starts overcomingthe reading problem, you can gradually pick up toys that are more advanced thanthe previous one. Slowly and steadily, you can help your son or daughter with thesupport of these educational toys.
  4. 4. Which Toy is right for your Kid?Let me ask me ask you a question, what were the things which you loved themost when you were a child? How did you create your fancy world? Who were themost prized possessions when you knew you some human? What filled up yourroom and you always craved for more? I am sure you must have got the answerby now and the answer to all these is Toys.Toys are the dearest possession of the children and they love to have more andmore every time when they see their friends playing with some which he or shedoes not have or when they spot something which is lying in the window of thetoy shop. It seems that their demands for toys seem to never end and we keepon buying them whatever they ask for, the reason behind this is we love themand as soon as they are born, we vow to give them all the happiness in the worldand we do so by completing all their needs but there is one thing which we tendto overlook when we are buying the load of toys for children (in Danish legetøjtil børn) and that is we don’t check the utility of the toy or how the toy wouldhelp to develop the development of the child. We as smart parents have to makesure that we give the right kind of upbringing to your children and sometimes inthe love factor, we tend to overlook the fact that what impact the toy has on thechild.The toys at small age are made for nourishing the development processes in thechild like for the infant to 6 to 8 months we have the teether which is meant forinfants of that age because they are expecting the teeth to come and hence theywant to put everything in their mouths. So next time when you go out to buy atoy for your child then make sure that you buy the right kind of toy and to knowthis all you have to do is find out the age group which is written on the toy and
  5. 5. also check the age of your kids and then decide whether the toy will contribute inthe development process or not. There are many educational toys (in Danishpædagogisk legetøj) in the market to fulfill your child’s developmentalrequirement. Motor Toys and Institution Toys makes your Kids SmartYou can virtually find robotic technology everywhere—from remote controls, todigital clocks, to vehicles, computers, manufacturing equipment, UAVs, the toyslike AIBO, ASIMO and even your commonplace ATMs. To be deemed a true robot,a machine must be able to interface and interact with its user and surroundingsand respond accordingly. Robotic technology is being extensively in motor toysnowadays.In the past, people thoroughly believed that there was a humanoid robotic race.Even in mythology we had the Greek god Hephaestus who said to have builtautomations to assist in the construction of temples. The Jews thought that claygolems could come alive and so did the Norse, about their clay giants. As early asthe 4th century circa, the Greek mathematician Archytas claimed that he couldmake ‘the pigeon’, a steam powered bird—this was before Watt invented thesteam engine. In the 9th century, war weapons were said to have utilized air andsteam pressure to launch projectiles.When it comes to motor toys, robotic technology has greatly evolved. Take forexample toy human robots, does one want them to look like actual humans or thetypical nuts-bolts-and-rivets type model? It is seen that children prefer high techrobots but only if they look cool and resemble some kind of a fighting machinenot a human. Gundam, transformers etc are good examples of what children wanttheir institution toys or motor toys (in Danish motorisk legetøj) to look like.
  6. 6. In recent times, if you are ready to dish out money then you can buy the threemost recent types of robots—soft, swarm and haptic. Soft robots have a flexibleendoskeleton and silicon body and resemble humans; swarm robots have multipleprocessors working in unison which gives them unprecedented computing powerenabling them to interact better (like the Aibo) and finally the haptic robots whichenable their users to interface with them on a virtual level. The power source hasvaried since the inception of robotic technology. Earlier automatons used air,water and steam; newer robots use DC motors, lithium batteries, air muscles,actuators and even hydrogen fuel cells. Robots have always been a thing offascination for children. They make for great institution toys (in Danishinstitutionslegetøj) and help to inspire a feeling of interest in robotics andmechanics amongst the young minds. The robot Aibo for example will intrigueyour child and urge him to find new ways to interact with the robot—this boostscreativity.
