As essential as it is for kids who are still learning about the world and have a lot of growing up to do, there is a lot of misconception about playtime. This may seem surprising as kids’ playtime seems like such a simple concept, so what’s there to misunderstand? You’ll be quite surprised at the answer. Below, we take a look at the common myths about playtime for kids:

Many are of the belief that learning and playing are two different processes. By this logic, it would also mean that when playing, kids don’t learn anything new, and while learning, kids do not have fun. But this couldn’t be further from the truth. In reality, playing helps children work on their critical thinking skills and also trains them to be more flexible and adaptable.

Besides, with an educational toy like Ask Amy, playing can be extremely beneficial as she can teach kids new words, lullabies and rhymes, improve their communication and oral skills, help them self-learn, and much more.

Kids only like to play rough

If you think playing only means running around, screaming and shouting, wrestling each other on the ground and jumping everywhere, you are wrong. This is just one aspect of playtime. When given the kids educational toys like Ask Amy, kids can peacefully entertain themselves and learn on their own.

This is one of the biggest misconceptions that people have. We have all come to believe that girls should play with dolls, Barbies and tea sets, while boys play with trucks and action figures. However, allowing your kids to play with whatever toy they want can be more beneficial than you think.
