Developmental Value

Young children learn best by touching and playing with toys and materials. Simply handling and manipulating the road racer is a form of sensory play which helps develop eye-hand coordination and fine motor skills in preparation for hand and finger control needed for writing. Youngsters are still gaining control of large muscles. The better they control the car, the greater their physical confidence.

With a toy like this wooden road racer, toddlers can put real world knowledge of cars into creative settings of imaginative play. With your help, children can make up delightful stories about racing adventures. Creative storytelling develops language, imagination and creative thinking skills. If children are struggling with creating stories, adults can model the skill, an excellent opportunity for relationship building and a lesson in teamwork.

Children continue to increase their vocabulary with your support. They can’t use words until they understand the meaning. It's not necessary to restrict language with young children. In fact, you can support language learning by using terms like racer, autocross, Grand Prix, racetrack, the pit, pit stop, and speedway.
