Top 5 Bigjigs Role Play Toys

Role play or pretend play toys can spark hours of imaginative play and are vital skills for children to learn. Big jigs Role play toys encourage creativity and imagination, communication and social skills. Pretend play helps children naturally develop socially and emotionally, it improves children's communication and language skills, it helps develop critical thinking and can support physical development.

Here we focus on their top role toys for all ages. These toys come to under £100 and it means you have 5 fantastic pretend play toys in your house to help your child learn through play.

  1. Bigjigs Play Kitchen 

    Play kitchens are a fantastic starting toy in role play toys. I think they work better than doll houses and farm sets for younger children, because they see food being made on a daily basis, they eat food so it's a very simple concept for them to start using pretend food. In our toy shop, the wooden kitchens we have set up are a magnet for children of all ages, they literally spend hours there making all sorts of food concoctions. I love the way a very shy child, within 10 minutes of playing with our kitchens will offer me some pretend play food to eat. The social, emotional and communication skills of a toy kitchen probably makes it one of my most recommended toys. This one comes with a chalkboard which is fantastic to play cafes and help children with basic writing skills as they get older.
     
  2. Bigjigs Table Top Theatre 

    The beauty about this theatre is its size and value for money. If you don’t have a lot of space this is a fantastic role play toy which will fit anywhere. Toy theatres really help children retell stories in their own words, create new stores and role play different scenarios. It creates brilliant speaking, listening and communication opportunities. Often children find it hard to talk directly about their emotions, but creating a story and doing it through a character will help them to express how they are feeling. You can use with the bigjigs finger puppets or create your own with your child.
     
  3. Bigjigs Play Farm


    This is a fantastic budget busting farm set which includes buildings, a farm family, a tractor, a windmill (we love a nod to sustainable electricity), and of course farm animals. For the price you get a LOT of farm and we really love the unusual windmill on it, which you just don’t get in many farms. Farm toys make fantastic pretend play toys because they help with learning animals, making animal noises, they teach children how to look after animals, and give fantastic role play adventures. Every family should have a farm set.
     
  4. Bigjigs Red Tool Belt

    We love to play with construction toys and this tool belt is a fantastic version of the traditional workbench. Again, ideal if you don’t have the space to build a big workbench and this can be an ideal travel toy to take on days out, there is always plenty of DIY to do. Tool belts and work benches allow children to discover the joys of fixing, great for creativity and fabulous for fine motor skill development. These are all sized perfectly for little hands to fix.. Everything! On a sustainable note, it's great to teach children to fix. Mending everything is a great way to teach about sustainability.

     

  5. Bigjigs City Fire Engine

    Nee naw, nee naw. Fire engines always seem to hold a special place in every young child's imagination and this one doesn’t disappoint. Coming with a lift and swivel ladder, it's ideal for rescuing cats!
