There are many different kinds of intelligence. Research has identified more than 120 distinct types of thinking abilities. Our challenge with children is to develop as many kinds of intelligence competencies as possible. This is most successfully done during the first, formative years of life.
Educational toys that are based on educational research and learning theory will stimulate a child’s thinking processes. When the brain is stimulated, its natural response is to form the neurological connections needed to imitate, perform and perfect an activity. The more a child’s mind is stimulated, the better the neurological wiring and thus a more intelligent child. Abilities not cultivated will not develop.
