Heuristic play offers babies the opportunity to explore their natural curiosity. As babies grow, they have an urge to handle items. They like to gather, fill, dump, stack, knock down, select and manipulate resources. This is because they are constantly exploring the world around them and how they can use their senses. When the little ones make an enjoyable discovery they often repeat the action several times to test the result, which strengthens cognitive development as well as fine muscle control and hand-to-eye coordination.
