What are fine motor skills toys?

Puzzles, jigsaws, building blocks, stacking and posting toys are all ideal for encouraging your toddler to develop their fine motor skills. These toys help with grasping, and hand-eye coordination which are important skills that will help your little one do everyday tasks like holding a pencil and picking up a cup.

What toys help develop fine motor skills?

Sensory Play - Rolling, pinching and stretching playdough and using playdough stamps help to encourage your toddler to explore many different ways to exercise their fine motor muscles.

Wooden Peg Puzzles - Picking up these puzzle pieces and placing them the correct spot helps to develop your childs pincer grasp.

Threading and Lacing - These types of toys are perfect for hand eye coordination. One of the most  important fine motor skills to master.

Why buy fine motor skills toys?

Given that most fine motor skills toys aren’t battery operated, they are reliable and portable enough to bring along with your busy toddler, whether you’re running errands or attending appointments.

On top of that, developing your child’s fine motor skills will help set them up to achieve their best once they begin attending kindergarten and beyond. Playing with toys like construction blocks and jigsaws will help strengthen your child’s arms, hands and fingers and develop their hand-eye coordination. Not only are these skills important for basic tasks like holding a cup or using a pencil, but they will also come in handy when kids begin playing ball games in or outside of school.
