Why do children play?

When a child plays, their brain fully active.

From an early age children play, if they are alone they continue playing; even in hostile environments children continue to play. Therefore, there must be an essential component between the game and the children that cannot be separated.
Together with the Hape Quadrilla toys they live out their fantasy through play. Although at the same moment, without being aware, they are experimenting and training to find solutions, because the child does not differentiate between playing and learning.
Therefore, we can say that the game is the first engine of development, it is an activity that allows one to recognize oneself, connect with oneself, with everyday life and with the world.

It also allows you to put yourself in the place of the other and assimilate reality. Through the game the child rehearses behaviors, develops his personality and releases emotions.

The importance of play and Hape Quadrilla toys in child development

To achieve a conscious acquisition of content, mental activity must be stimulated. Each tactical action of a game has a link with the physical and intellectual qualities of the child, so it is a good way to
acquire new knowledge.
Quadrilla educational games promote the development of cognitive ability in an active and dynamic way.
Didactic game is understood as the multifaceted and fundamental activity that promotes feelings, desires, aspirations, possibilities of feeling, capturing and producing spontaneously.
During the game, the children express their own ideas and, in this way, manifest their conceptual schemes. Thus, the game is considered a natural pedagogical scenario because the child acts freely and has a personal and social space.

They must be sensorially pleasing, simple (the simpler, the more versatile), easy to handle, safe and age-appropriate.
The more possibilities of use and functions the toy can develop, the more interesting it will be and the better it will contribute to the free, creative and imaginative development of playful activity.
The toy must be solid, non-toxic or flammable and free of dangers: it must not have parts that could cause injuries, it must be resistant to shocks, it must not contain small parts that can be dislodged and it must be easy to clean to avoid the risk of infection. disease or contagion.

Through play, the child builds knowledge through her own experience. It goes from the sensorimotor game to the game of rules and thinking, so the game becomes a great tool for learning.
We can say that when the child plays with HapeQuadrilla toys, they put all their effort, interest, knowledge and motivation, thus developing their abilities.
