BANGALORE, February 2, 2018 /PRNewswire/ --
Skola Toys, launched in September 2017 in India, provides a unique range of wooden learning toys for the age group of 2 to 7. Skola is one of the first wooden toy companies to provide specific learning outcomes with each toy. Skola also maps each aspect of learning sequentially, to play - thus the tagline: 'Skola Toys, Learning Journeys Designed as Play'.
Skola Toys will be available shortly in the US and European Market through online platforms like Amazon.com/.uk. In the Middle East, Skola Toys is likely to be available on Mumzworld.com. In the month of January, Skola is exhibiting in the Nuremberg Toy Fair (Germany) and in the last week of February Skola Toys would be participating in Playworld, the biggest toy fair of the Middle East Region, Dubai. With this Skola Toys will soon be connected with dealers globally, and be available to children across the world.
Skola Toys are truly child-centric from every perspective. They are:
1. Beautiful - Attract Children
2. Self-correcting - Minimal adult intervention
3. Challenging - Multiple levels of games in each toy
4. Single Objective - Focus on only one aspect of learning at a time
5. Wooden - Natural materials attract children more than plastic toys
Skola Toys consists of 6 categories or 'Lands' of learning - Fine Motor Skills, Language, Numbers, Environment, Culture and Cognition. Each Land has several journeys and each such 'Learning Journey' consists of 4-7 toys, which take a child step wise along a learning path of challenges and discovery.
Skola's founding team has been working in the early Education space for over 15 years and has been manufacturing and supplying Montessori materials to over 20,000 schools across the globe. They also have experience in formulating and implementing a revolutionary preschool curriculum that is now being implemented in over 1,000 schools across India. They have trained over a 1,000 early years teachers and have impacted over 100,000 children in the past 5 years. The founding team has also run their own preschool where every aspect of a young child's experiential learning was thoroughly studied and researched.
Mridula Shridhar, one of the Co-founders of Skola, says, "We all know that children between the ages of 2-7 years learn best through experimentation and making mistakes, rather than being taught. When you create toys that are self-correcting and beautiful, there is nothing better, for these toys to intrigue and challenge the child, while also helping them discover learning at every step of the way. This is fantastic for socio-emotional development as well, since it not only makes them immensely happy, it gives their confidence a huge boost. This is what we try to deliver with each Skola Toy."
VK Manikandan, another Co-founder, says, "We manufacture every Skola Toy in-house in our world-class facilities in Bangalore, India. Conceptualisation, Design, Prototyping and Manufacturing are all done in-house. Every toy and every component goes through stringent quality checks and meets CE and ASTM quality benchmarks. Children love Skola for their vibrant colours, beautiful finishes and its look and feel, besides the fun."
Skola aims to be a key player in the #PlayItRight space which has the potential to shape the child's thinking ability and desire to learn. Playing with the right toys independently during the very absorbent early years builds confidence, competence, and contentment in children as they embark on the Skola Learning Journeys designed as play.
