Our excellent role play items enable children to develop their creative thinking abilities, through the use of their object substitution skills to create their play worlds, represent other objects, and in the process, enact different settings either by themselves or with others.


When children engage in role play with their peers and act out roles and characters in various scenarios they invent, they usually need to set individual and joint goals. This improves responsibility in children and teaches them different ways to problem solve.
