Why Traditional Toys Such as Building Blocks Are Leading the Way in Child Development


Parents, teachers and nursery practitioners are often targeted by the toy industry constantly promoting their latest offering to the market as the next big thing in toys for encouraging the development of essential skills. But, when it comes to STEM and physical development toys, the perfect solution has been around for years!

Building blocks have been a key feature in toy boxes for decades as they encourage vital skills such as basic mathematics, problem-solving and even engineering, so they’re still a relevant staple for parents who want to nurture their child’s development for better academic learning later on down the line.

Once constructed using scraps of wood sanded down and painted in an array of colours, then later created in plastic, the traditional building block has been given a giant makeover to appeal to children (and adults!) thanks to Everblocks.

These giant blocks really allow imaginations to run wild, and schools and playgroups all over the UK have been using Everblocks to construct playhouses, bridges, tables and chairs and pretty much anything else the children can think of!

Here are just a few benefits of Everblocks as a great STEM learning tool:

  1. They’re waterproof and easy to clean

Everblocks are ideal for both indoor and outdoor play thanks to their plastic material. This makes them completely waterproof if left outside when it begins to rain.

They’re also easy to wipe down if sticky fingers have been involved and quick to sanitise as part of your normal toy cleaning process.

  1. They’re lightweight but sturdy

Light enough to be picked up and moved by small children, Everblocks are also incredibly robust and sturdy, meaning that they can easily take weights far heavier than their own. From tables and chairs to bedframes and benches, Everblocks are safe, secure and can be used again and again to construct anything little imaginations can think of.

  1. Colourful and practical

Visually engaging, Everblocks come in a rainbow of colourful shades that children just love and can easily help brighten up any space on a rainy day with some indoor fun. Their giant size makes them an ideal STEM toy that encourages group work and coordination with others, so they’re also great for promoting teamwork.
