We’re huge Schleich fans in this house with an ever growing and much loved collection of everything from dinosaurs to superheros with a variety of farm and zoo animals thrown in for good measure as well.
Recently the kiddywinks received some new additions to their Schleich family as I learnt all about Schleich’s new campaign “Education Play the Schleich Way”. Schleich has created a 16 page brochure designed to be a guide to imaginative play and development. It covers such as a balanced play diet, encouraging imagination and early language skills, the guide also comes with helpful hints and tips on how to get the best from your child’s playtime and how you can incorporate Schleich products.
I found the brochure really interesting, we all know to feed our kids a proper balanced diet but I did not know about the importance of a balanced play diet, that is until now. The basics are that children need to spend their time enjoying different areas of play which include Social Play, Active Play, Creative Play and Free Play.
The brochure also has a variety of different game suggestions which can stimulate imaginative play and co-operative games which will encourage better team work. The brochure is filled with loads of great tips including out and about play and how to develop early language skills as well. We’ve given lots of the suggested games a try and had a great time doing so, it’s wonderful to see them use their imaginations so much, and we’ll be giving the rest a try too.
Schleich figures are available from Schleich and start at just £2.99 and the brochure can be downloaded for free by clicking here.
