Toys and games needed

We are appealing for good-quality educational games and toys, to be used by both teachers and learners for a project in South Africa. They will be used as learning tools, whilst also helping with developmental skills, discipline, confidence, dexterity and, more importantly, showing how learning can be fun.

Lots of toys and games focus on maths skills, numbers and counting and offer children a good introduction to this. Although they may not be aware of it, they will be immersed in the toy or games but they will be learning and picking up on basic maths concepts and numerical skills. The same applies to words, reading and writing. Seeing words written down will instil the knowledge that in order to use the games and toys they will need to learn to read.
