Why Play Is Important For Your Child’s Development


In the hustle and bustle of modern life, it’s easy to overlook the profound importance of play in your child’s development. But play is far more than just fun and games; it’s a fundamental building block for your child’s physical, cognitive, social, and emotional growth. Did you ever think of that?

As per the LEGO® PLAY Report 

7 in 10 kids (70%) love learning new things through PLAY whereas 39% of children feel that their parents’ jobs get in the way of family PLAY. And guess what, 85% of families said PLAY makes them happier.

Looking at these stats, I realized how important PLAY is for my kids’ well-being. Did you know that play is like a gym for your child’s brain?

Play isn’t just about toys; it’s about interaction. Playtime with peers and siblings shapes your child’s social skills, empathy, and cooperation.
