How Music & Musical Toys Can Help A Child’s Development

Did you know that the opportunity to play with musical toys before they can even walk or talk can help benefit the developmental growth of your child?

Here are some reasons why you must make musical toys a part of your child's play routine.

It speeds up brain development

Music appears to accelerate brain development in young children, particularly in the areas of the brain responsible for processing sound, language development, speech perception and reading skills. Likewise, music can be responsible for the formation of an accelerated exchange of information between the left and right hemispheres of the brain. The processes of perception, recognition, thinking, and decision making are possible only through the interaction of two regions, each of which has its specialization. 

It boosts cognitive and sensory skills 

It is thought that the patterns and rhythms of music help the brain to become faster and more efficient at transmitting information. Babies and toddlers who are exposed to music perform better in areas such as language development, speech, listening and reading skills.

It helps with language development 

With music instruments, your little one is flooded with songs and rhymes that provide the opportunity to imitate both rhythm, pitch and syllables even before they are able to make formal speech sounds. You can try singing songs with sign language and easy actions too! The symbols, gestures and eye-to-eye contact involved in signing with your baby provide a strong foundation for his or her language development.

It's built upon gross and fine motor skills

Using a variety of instrument sizes and types, gives them the ability to improve their physical skills in gross and fine motor skills. For instance, banging on a drum helps build gross motor skills, while making use of the fingers to play a toy piano helps with fine motor skills.

It encourages self-expression 

The little ones don’t always have the vocabulary they need to express themselves and can get frustrated when they are unable to verbalize their feelings. Musical toys give them an opportunity to express however they are feeling in the moment and can help release any pent-up energy. Not to mention, they get a whole lot of fun from it!
