Magic Garden

Wow! The Magic Garden attracts toddlers and their parents to play in so many delightful ways. The intentional design leads to longer play-times and enhanced development. Infants play longer when they can manipulate objects and discover the cause and effect actions of their bodies upon the materials. This play structure is loaded with those opportunities for play. The sand scoops, gears, and pieces of fruit all offer different types of cause and effect movements that children notice and act upon. This helps children to develop logical thinking based on motor planning, key developmental tasks. The counter and window encourage social play and may even inspire dramatic play, as the Magic Garden could be a florist shop in the minds of the children. Dramatic play spurs language development everyday.
