Learning Through Play: The Best Way to Market Toy Brands

If you’re looking for an impactful way to market your toy brand, aligning your brand messaging with skills taught in daycare is a great place to start. Learning through play is the #1 way kids learn in daycare, and by supporting and facilitating meaningful learning opportunities, your brand has the opportunity to make a lasting impression.

There are various types of play that children need in order to develop important language, motor, social, emotional, and cognitive abilities. These include physical, dramatic, sensory, nature, music and art, and age-appropriate play. At MIR Communications, we can help you identify which types of play would be most advantageous for your brand messaging and then develop a plan to integrate them into your marketing strategy.

Types of Play That Support Meaningful Learning Opportunities

Physical play is essential for developing gross motor skills like balance and coordination. It also helps children burn off energy and explore their environment. Dramatic play helps children develop social skills by giving them a chance to role-play different situations. Sensory play aids in the development of fine motor skills as well as cognitive skills like memory and reasoning. Nature play allows children to explore the world around them and develop an appreciation for the natural world. Music and art help children express themselves creatively and develop areas of the brain related to math and science. Age-appropriate play is crucial for providing challenges that are just right for each individual child’s skill level.
