RAIN, RAIN, GO AWAY
The makers from Crete, Greece turned the umbrella upside down, painted it bold red and made it swing in order to offer endless hours of creative and imaginative play. With a playful look, an everyday object for adults is turned into a fun and challenging toy for your little one. Stack the weather elements on the umbrella, find the balance and make it swing! It is an open-ended and educative toy that stimulates imagination, exercises fine motor and cognitive skills and gives the opportunity for us to explain to our young curious learners who ask, "Where does the rain comes from?”.
Imaginative play is a kind of open-ended, unstructured play with no rules, goals o result- except that kids learn a lot along the way. According to Sally Goddard Blythe, the importance of imagination in all areas of child development cannot be overstated. "This kind of play allows children to tap into their creativity and really run with it, without any boundaries, in a way that is very freeing".
