The Most Fun Toys for Kids With A Lot of Imagination: Play Play Play

Summer is upon us and kids are having more energy than ever- well, mine’s never ever slowed down, but seriously, with the hot season approaching so fast, playtime is everything that matters around here, and I am sure all of you mammas agree with me!

And from my own experience, at the age of 4-going-on-5, imaginary play, also referred to as pretend play, is number 1 amongst all games: experimenting with different sorts of roles and characters, from good to evil, from nice to bad, is when kids get to do so much learning. From exploring new attitudes, words and problems, to finding solutions, growing confidence, learning defence or boosting their creativity in play.

And the best part about it? They can start pretend play with pretty much any object they find. Seriously, my son can engage in imaginary play with swimming ear plugs, knives and forks, old cartons or pens…. But sometimes it’s way more fun when finding beautiful toys that spark their imagination and creativity! Here are some of the best toys for imaginary play I would recommend based on my son’s play preferences, that are so good for kids 3+ to help soar their imagination!

Plan Toys Green Dollhouse with Furniture

This one is for me, to be honest. I mean, just look at it! This dollhouses’ energy efficient design includes a wind turbine, a solar cell panel for generating electricity, a rain barrel for collecting rain, a bio facade, which uses the natural cycle of plant growth to provide shading, a blind that can adjust the amount of sunlight and air circulation. Also, recycling bins are included in the set. How cool is that? Play time + extra lessons on green living for the kids!
