Kids love playing with accessories, especially when they're pretending to be something they're not. Accessories can help fuel their imaginations, and they can also teach them about the world around them. For instance, a child who pretends to talk on the phone can learn about communication, while a child who uses binoculars can learn about observation. Steering wheels can teach kids about cause and effect, while bells can teach them about cause and effect. Picnic tables can teach them about cooperation. In short, accessories can be a great way to encourage learning and play.
