Thinking/ Problem Solving Toys: Pyramid, part 3

The third layer of our healthy play pyramid is Thinking/ Problem Solving Toys.

Manipulative toys like Marbleworks (seen here)
and EZ Blocks help build problem solving skills and abstract thinking skills. They also teach about logic, balance, gravity.

Construction toys that have multiple ways of assembling and no determined play pattern such as Motorworks, Fashion Friends, and Zip Track are also useful in building cognitive skills.
