Behind the colourful and engaging toys, games and puzzles that Galt Toys is renowned for, there is a vibrant, local history with a story that began over 180 years ago. James Galt, originally born in Stewarton, Ayrshire, established an educational stockist in Manchester in 1836 before expanding into printing and publishing in the 1850s. A century later, the business relocated to Cheadle in Cheshire in 1957, where Galt can still be found today.
The Galt Toys division was formed in 1961 and remains dedicated to producing and selling quality toys, beloved by generations of parents and children alike. Galt Toys inspire learning through play and are designed to be fun, colourful, and imaginative, while also supporting all areas of child development. From a new-born reaching out to explore the textures and sounds of the innovative Playnest to the aspiring scientist conducting their very first experiments with the Explore & Discover range, Galt Toys grow with your child.
6 Reasons Arts & Crafts & Horrible Science First Experiments are beneficial for your child
Motor Skills: When kids use their fingers to manipulate art materials they are developing their fine motors skills as they use those small muscles in their hands. Their bilateral coordination skills improve as they learn to use both hands at the same time.
Literacy: Early child literacy skills in art and crafts cover a wide range of areas – from speaking and reading to listening and understanding. When kids make art or crafts they get to talk about their work which develops their communication skills. “Why did you choose that colour?” “Tell me about what you made.” They learn new vocabulary from parents and when following verbal instructions they use their listening skills.
Maths Concepts: Kids get to learn about and recognise different shapes, count and sort out their art supplies and even measure out lengths and sizes of art materials. To master math, you need good thinking and problem-solving skills which art and crafts activities help with as well.
Creativity: Art allows kids to develop their creativity which is important throughout their lives. By doing something creative, you allow for self-expression and this lets kids express (and cope with) their feelings. It also fosters mental growth in children by providing opportunities for trying out new ideas, new ways of thinking and problem-solving.
Self-Esteem: Art and craft activities give kids a sense of achievement and allow them to take pride in their work which builds confidence. Making art is a great, safe way to discover that it’s okay to make mistakes and that getting things ‘wrong’ can lead you to a whole new idea.
Quality Time: Kids just love to spend time with their parents and what better way than to do arts and crafts together! You get to spend quality time bonding with your kids and at the same time, you are creating lifelong memories to cherish.
