What’s a learning aid?
Learning aids are tools that help kids learn. They can be anything from a toy or game to a book, but they all have one thing in common: they make learning fun!
Learning aids are important because they give children an advantage when it comes to schoolwork. Children who use learning aids tend to do better in class than those who don’t use them at all or only use them sparingly.
Australian animal toys are great for kids because they teach them about Australia’s wildlife while being fun at the same time!
Australian Animal Toys
We’re an Australian-owned business and stock a lovely range of Australian-inspired toys, so we’re a bit biased. But, Australian animal toys are a great way to learn because we have such a wide range of unusual animals and it opens up a wonderful opportunity to discover and learn. They come in a variety of materials, shapes and sizes and are educational as well as fun!

How to Choose the Right Learning Aid
These are some of the things you should consider when choosing a learning aid:
Age appropriateness. The toy should be appropriate for your child’s age and developmental level. For example, if your child is 3 years old, then it’s best to get them an animal toy that has fewer pieces and is easier for them to assemble on their own.
Learning objectives. Look at what the toy will teach your child by reading its description or watching videos about it online before purchasing it so that you know whether or not it fits into their current learning objectives (e.g., number recognition). Check out this great article from Brightwheel about Preschool Learning Objectives and what they are and how you can use these to select the perfect learning aid for your child.
Safety features such as choking hazards and small parts that could break off easily if dropped on hard surfaces like tile floors where they could get stuck between tiles causing injury or even death if swallowed accidentally by children under 6 years old who might try picking up these kinds of objects themselves without thinking twice about how dangerous they could potentially be! If you’re needing more help choosing safe toys for toddlers and preschoolers head over to the Product Safety Australian site and check out their articles which is a wonderful and comprehensive resource.
