Self Help Toys

One of the wonders of childhood is that children learn so much through play. Toys are an important part of their day for amusement and comfort as well as for learning.

The Toy Bug has a carefully chosen range of toys that we call 'self help' toys because they help children learn basic skills while they play.

This is Sandra's Wardrobe. Isn't it gorgeous? A great toy for developing bilateral integration (both hand working together), illustrating body part concept and awareness and improve hand-eye coordination. It is also excellent for helping children become familiar with morning routine as you start to prepare them for transition into school. They can help the doll dress for school with clothes, sunhat and school bag, before they have to do it for themselves.

This is our Puppy Activity Doll.
He's a perfect example of the toy that is for comfort as well as learning. He is such a nice, soft armful to cuddle but if you look closely you will see that he is full of little learning activities. With laces to untie, a buckle to unbuckle and snaps to be undone, little ones will be fascinated with this bright and coloured friend.

We have quite a selection of Self Help toys to choose from. All you need to do is to decide which skills your child needs to learn or practice and that will help you to choose the perfect toy from our range.
