Toddler Games: What the Online World Can Offer Your Toddler
In today’s world, there is an extensive list of things for toddler girls and boys to do. Have you ever wandered around the toy store and noticed the abundance of items for indoor play versus outdoor play that are offered? It is mind blowing. But, it certainly does not leave me wondering why children would rather spend a vast majority of their time inside! With that being said, if our toddler is going to be playing within the closed walls of our homes or preschool, make it fun, make it entertaining, and most importantly, make it educational. We have so many options today it blows my mind. With the way technology has taken off, everything is on the tip of our fingers; from free online toddler games to educational toddler games that you can purchase at both your nearby store or even on your iPad.
It is like the popular saying, “when life hands you lemons, make lemonade.” Unhappy with the fact your child would rather sit inside on the computer or eyes locked on the television screen and wondering what in your right mind you are going to do about it – make the best of it… and I have the answer for you! I am sure you are sitting there wondering, what is she talking about?
Remember that word “free” I used? I am sure it is sticking with you – who doesn’t love getting things for free, especially in today’s economy? With the prices of toddler games these days, often is it hard to fathom spending twenty dollars on a toddlers computer game, when luck might have it that it is played with twice, gets scratched, lost, or just really is not that fabulous! Free toddler games for girls and boys can be found all over the internet all you have to do is look (in the right places)! Not to mention, for the most part they are just as mind locking and brain turning and learning as the ons we spend ridiculous money on.
Nearly anything and everything can be found by the click of the mouse. Simply do a Google search, or even go to your child’s favorite television channel website and I can guarantee that you will scan through hundreds of free toddler computer games. To give you an example, the Disney channel has amazing, mind capturing, and even educational games – I can almost promise you that you will find a great Disney toddler game online that your son or daughter would be captivated by. (http://disney.go.com/index) They offer games pertaining to their favorite television show, sports games, learning games, puzzles, books, and much more. There is enough there to keep your toddler busy for hours (if that is what you want!) You name it, they have it.
Perhaps you are more of a Fisher Price mom? We all know that Fisher Price toddler games have and always will be exceptional. What you maybe didn’t know is that this wonderful brand we love and spend hundreds of dollars on, offers free toddler games for girls and boys online. Choose between ABC toddler games, Thomas and Friends games for your son, fashion games for toddler girls, or memory and coloring games. You can be sure to find something your toddler will be interested in and you will approve of.
Remember that iPad you received as a Christmas gift? Have you ever gone through the thousands of applications it offers, most importantly, the free ones? You can find just about any application for your growing, learning toddler. You will discover applications to help them learn to read and write, work on shapes and colors, memory games, and puzzles. Again, just about anything you could possibly think of. An added bonus to the iPad applications, you can read what others have to say about it before wasting your time and space on the electronic device. Maybe it doesn’t run properly, doesn’t offer a lot, or perhaps it is the greatest application created! Whatever it may be – you have the opportunity to become aware of it prior. Like I had mentioned – everything is at the tip of our fingers in the comfort of our own home when it comes to online toddler games and educational activities.
Toddler educational games are so important to the learning and daily activity of our kids. Keeping our child stimulated, busy, and learning does not have to be expensive, nor does it have to cost us a single penny. Remember, a toddler learning game for nearly any interest and learning level can be found online. These electronic activities that we use to enthrall our children at an early age is just the beginning. In the fast paced world of the twenty first century, technology is all around us and there is a constant need to stay up to date on the latest and greatest trends.
If I could leave you with one piece of advice, as great as the online and electronic world is, and as amazing as toddler games and activities online can be, always monitor what your child is doing. You never know what the click of the mouse can do or where it can bring you. It may even be in your best interest to set a time limit, whether it is ten-minutes, thirty-minutes, or an hour a day.
Sure, you can go out and spend hundreds of dollars right now on educational games and cross your fingers that it will be played with on a daily basis. But, if you have learned anything from this, that is not necessary! Free toddler games are available to you anytime and day. No more worrying about if it will be played with!
