Shop through our varied range of imaginative play resources for playcentres and preschools. Research has clearly shown the benefits of children engaging in pretend games. They include cognitive benefits such as increase in language usage and the awareness that ones thoughts may differ from another persons. Pretend play also allows for expression of positive and negative feelings without repercussion. Taking on different roles allows children the opportunity to learn communication,problem solving and empathy skills. It is also believed that pretend play may enhance a child's capacity for cognitive flexibility and ultimately creatively.
