The toy box contains a beautifully designed set of toys and games with clear learning outcomes that are achieved through Activity Based Learning (ABL) for children in the age group of 6 to 7 years (Class 1). Concrete learning happens in incremental steps through these activity-based and game-based tasks. The box contains 14 toys and 3 accessories and a detailed instruction manual. Children can play 62 different engaging games with the toys in this box.
With such an exhaustive list of games, children are engaged for long periods of time thus effortlessly meeting learning objectives. The games include the likes of trading, analysing and arranging patterns with clues, and playing exciting time games using a clock. The toy box makes it easier for parents to get children away from gadgets as they are engaged in productive play. The games are designed as single-player and multi-player providing opportunities for self-learning as well as interactive play.
