A different side of you can come out when you're playing with your baby; you may rediscover your inner child, you may thrive with the chance to share your passion like music or drawing, or you may find a reignited fascination for the senses. 

So what’s your signature play style? Are you The Architect, The Wrestler, The Creator or The Dreamer? Read these descriptions to discover your parenting play profile, as well as our top toy pick for you pulled straight from our February catalogue! 

The Architect 

You like hands-on toys, especially those that encourage building, critical thinking and exploring cause and effect. The type of toys you're drawn to will likely support fine motor skills by teaching stacking, gripping, pinching, or other movements that require the wrists and fingers. You might have loved playing with building blocks as a child, and as a parent, you may find yourself making grand creations that your little one then destroys – devastating!

The Wrestler  

You like physical, sensory toys that encourage movement and stimulate the senses. Your instinct for play is likely helping develop your little one's eyesight with high contrast designs and bright colours, including an element of interactivity and curiosity.

Plus, their hand-eye coordination can benefit from engaging with these small, round and sensory objects. Check out the ELC Flutter Balls here

You enjoy seeing your baby engage with anything that promotes creativity, and you probably love playing creatively right alongside them.
