As a parent and future educator, I know how important it is for children to play - it's essential to our children's development. When children play, it allows them to use their creativity while developing their imagination, play allows children to create and explore any world they can imagine. It's our job as parents to engage and encourage our children in imaginative play, having your child use their imagination is a lot easier than you may think! 

Start out simple - let your child color with different kinds of paper instead of a traditional coloring book, coloring outside of the lines is fun at any age! You can also incorporate gel pens, crayons, markers, and colored pencils.

Read a storybook together - ask your child about the characters and how they think they are feeling, what are the characters thinking about in different scenes, or what character would your child be if they were in the story.

Exposing your child to new experiences is another great way to encourage them to use their imagination! A trip to the local zoo, science museum or a new playground could spark an entire new play theme for your child.

Encourage the amount of time spent on imaginary play. Children love to invent scenarios and stories about toy figures, baby dolls, pretend animals and play sets. Don't be afraid to get in and play as well, your child will enjoy watching you pretend play too!

Choosing the right toys is important in your child's imaginative play, and that's exactly why my daughter loves playing with PLAYMOBIL play sets!

Little Sister C was so excited about her PLAYMOBIL School Bus and PLAYMOBIL Large City Zoo, she loves school and talks about it every day and she wants to be a veterinarian when she grows up - her love for all animals is strong! I really enjoyed watching my daughter play and use her imagination with PLAYMOBIL.

The PLAYMOBIL School Bus is an imaginative play set that contains 12 pieces and is perfect for ages 4 and up, it also has flashing lights and batteries are included! The PLAYMOBIL Large City Zoo is recommended for ages 4-10, and contains 175 pieces. Within minutes Little Sister C had named each student that was riding on the school bus and was thinking out loud of places the school bus could go for a field trip! The zoo took her a little longer to build and design, but I loved listening to her in awe of the colors and realistic look of all of the zoo animals. My daughter was fascinated by both PLAYMOBIL play sets and has already spent hours playing and using her imagination. 

Your child will develop both cognitive and social/emotional skills with PLAYMOBIL play sets, their toys are high-quality and feature a strong attention to detail. PLAYMOBIL toys have always been a family classic and now they are available at Walmart! We are at our local Walmart pretty often, as a busy mom it's great that I can shop at Walmart and get everything I need and all at an affordable price!

PLAYMOBIL makes it easy to encourage your children to have fun and use their imagination with play sets focused around iconic figures from a variety of worlds, both realistic and fantastical. PLAYMOBIL imaginative play sets include Take Along Police Station, School Bus, Explorer Quad with T-Rex, Large City Zoo and so much more - with PLAYMOBIL the possibilities are endless!
