Carmichael, California (PRWEB) February 25, 2013
Musical toys for toddlers are in abundance in the online catalog at Reagan's Toy Chest. The online toy store is promoting their category "The Musician" to encourage parents to expose their toddlers early with musical training.
A recently published study in the Journal of Neurosciece suggests that early musical training has positive and long-lasting effects on child development. (Source: Journal of Neuroscience Jan 16, 2013, Authors Christopher J. Steele, Jennifer A. Bailey, Robert J. Zatorre, and Virginia B. Penhune) The impact of musical exposure increases brain development and can be seen as early as in fetal development during pregnancy.
"Music should be a part of every baby and toddlers life," according to Lanaya Cooper, owner of LRB Enterprises, LLC which owns online retailer Reagan's Toy Chest. "Various studies have proven that children that are exposed to musical instruments and lessons score better in a number of measured behaviors. My online musical toddler toys catalog is full of instruments waiting to be learned." Learning musical instruments help to increase the power of the brain, according to the above mentioned study by Steele, Bailey, Zatorre and Penhune.
Reagan's Toy Chest promotes that regular exposure for a young child to music stimulation will build concentration as well as reasoning skills. Penhune states, “Learning to play an instrument requires coordination between hands and with visual or auditory stimuli. Practicing an instrument before age seven likely boosts the normal maturation of connections between motor and sensory regions of the brain, creating a framework upon which ongoing training can build.”
"I encourage parents to start with the toddler pianos available at Reagan's Toy Chest," says Cooper. According to experts the piano is not as complicated as string instruments. A multitude of sounds can be made by manipulating the different piano keys. The more sounds, patterns and variations that a child is familiar with, then there’s a better chance of increasing their reasoning, thinking and concentration skills.
