5 Reasons why we love open-ended toys

Mar 13, 2020
Why We Love Open Ended Toys

Toys on the bed, toys on the floor, toys in livingroom and toys right at the front door… We have a playroom, but let’s be honest, with 3 little ones you can expect our home to be full of toys. However, over the years we have learned a thing or two about play and why we love open-ended toys far more than any other…

So what is an open-ended toy?

Open-ended toys have multiple uses and countless possibilities. Traditionally it would be items such as paint, clay, sand, mud, water, blocks, and Legos. These toys aren’t limited by exact definitions and restrictions. They can adapt and change and be played with, in a variety of ways. No fancy rules and instructions,  just loads of imagination. Over time clever design and innovative thinking have added to the list of open-ended toys. These days we are spoiled for choice.
