When I look with nostalgia at this picture of Bigjigs wooden railway toys it takes me back to my childhood days playing for hours and being totally wrapped up in my own imagination. I would plan my little town and build a railway station and a rail system that would go over roads and pass houses and farms with animals. It became a whole life-like system of transport and a community all in one.
I think that this type of playing develops a child's ability to think in three dimensions and plan where things should go and how they all work together - a whole system. It is far better than having them watch a screen all day long. With these educational toys they have to actually handle pieces and figure out how to fit them together into a working system. This isn't difficult and it is loads of fun.
