Educational Benefits of Musical Toys for Toddlers

By the age of 1 year old, toddlers are increasingly attracted to instruments and sounds. Slightly more interactive than musical toys for babies, the best musical toys for toddlers and 1 year olds stimulate creativity and imagination when music is triggered by movement. This aids toward the development of motor skills, which in the years to follow become more complex motor movements such as playing a musical instrument.

Memory and Language Development

As 1 year old’s start to recognize popular children’s songs and nursery rhymes they receive enormous benefits from musical toys that play well known melodies. The repetition of simple songs aids memory and the early development of language. Many toddlers can sing melodies and bop along to songs they know well before they can structure a sentence.

Creative Expression

Musical expression in the form of movement starts as early as the toddler years, and there’s nothing more heartwarming than watching a young child dance to their favorite song, imitate playing an instrument, or sing a nursery rhyme out of tune.

Accelerated Brain Development

Research conducted by the University of Southern California’s Brain and Creativity Institute in 2016 found that children’s brains develop faster with music training. So musical experiences with musical toys in childhood can actually accelerate brain development, particularly in the areas of language acquisition and reading skills.

Critical Thinking and Problem Solving

Further studies prove that babies and toddlers who are more exposed to music and musical toys, through playing, listening and singing, tend to be more advanced than their peers in terms of learning skills, critical and logical thinking skills, and problem-solving skills.
