I’m sure your kids have had the ‘Why? Phase’. I know mine have. Where they are so incredibly curious that everything I say they ask why? or how? Yes, it can be aggravating, but their little minds are growing and developing, they just want to know how and why. These simple machine toys are toys, but they will feed into their how and why curiosity that you might get a small reprieve.
These simple machine toys delve into how simple machines work. Why wheels spin, how pulleys pull and the physics behind simple machines. Your kids may see this as just having fun, but these toys are extremely helpful for developing critical thinking, fine motor skills, cause and effect, as well as many other areas.
