Toyroom – Goki Bead Coaster : Review

Toyroom Toys - Goki Bead Coaster : Review

Toys are kids’ best friends. But what if these toys aided in their development? Wouldn’t that be great for us parents and the kids? We received a Bead Coaster from Toyroom and we absolutely adore it.

Toyroom

This online toys portal was an initiative of parents who wanted to bring high quality imported toys to India. They offer amazing brands such as : Goki, Anker, Heimess, Holtztiger and Peggy Diggledey. Their toys are great resources for long hours of fun and creative play. They are extremely open ended and allow for multiple learning opportunities. They also help in developing fine motor skills, promoting role play, providing great sensorial learning and enhancing memory and cognitive skills.

Always love such hand written notes 🙂

Goki Bead Coaster

This educational toy stimulates kids through every stage and develops their natural abilities. The toy is made of metal and wood. It has colourful beads which attract the attention of the kid and swoop and slide along the coaster wires. The toy has a sturdy wooden base.

Skills that it promotes :

Fine Motor SkillsThis is the co-ordination of the small muscle groups.

Sensory skills : These involve the stimulation of the senses like seeing, touching, tasking etc.

Memory and cognitive skills  :These are associated with learning and problem solving.

STEM :This method of learning involves more of hands on learning by problem solving and critical thinking.

Present Play Time

Bead Coaster is the all time favourite of teachers and doctors because it gives open ended play time and learning for kids.

Hand Eye co-ordination

When Baby A moves the beads along the wires, it challenges his hands and eye coordination and a a result enhances this skill.

Introduction to shapes

This toy has beads of various shapes, thus helps in introduction of different types of shapes in a single toy.

Attractive Colours

The beads and wires are of attractive colours. These colours are 100% safe for the kids.

Pincer grip

When Baby A tries to move the beads around, he is learning how to master his pincer grip. This is very important to promote pre-writing skills.

How I intend to use this toy for learning in the future 

Colour and Shape recognition

One Baby A learns all these shapes and colours, I would make him identify the same,

Directions

Can be helpful in teaching directions like up, down, left right.

Understanding Numbers

This would be a great toy to help understand the numbers. Can be used to teach counting.

Memory and cognitive skills

I would create a pattern and ask my kid to memorise it. Would change it, and ask him to create the same pattern. It is a great way to develop memory and cognitive skills.

Why we like it

Safety

It is a safe toy because it does not have any kind of loose or small parts. The beads are made of wood which has a natural sanitising property. The colours used are safe.

Attention Grabber

I give this toy to play for sometime everyday and I love how Baby A plays with it differently every time. The attractive colours grab his attention.

Durability

My son is quite mobile right now and so dropped the coaster so many times. But it is highly durable and I know will stay put for a long time.

Attention Span

Babies have a very short attention span. Open ended toys like this help increasing this span. I have noticed that he tries to move the beads along the wires and sometimes spends a long time to catch hold of a single bead. He has never given so much attention to any toy till now.

Easy to clean

The wooden material is so easy to clean. Just need to wipe it with a warm cloth and its done.

Final Thoughts

We are loving this bead coster right now. It helps a lot in keeping Baby A engaged for a good amount of time. I would love to introduce complex bead coasters in the future. But till then, this one is going to be our good friend.
