Imagination and Education

We appreciate you taking an interest in ESFarm Toys! We started making fences in 2012 when we couldn’t find any good quality fences made in the U.S.A. Both my husband and I grew up playing with the fences and we wanted our children to have them as well. There are so many possibilities with the fences and we wanted to give children even more opportunities to use their imagination with our unique barn designs.

The Importance of Promoting Imagination
I have always believed in providing opportunities for children to use their imaginations, and after receiving my Early Childhood Care and Education degree the importance was expressed even more. The technology we have now is amazing, but like everything else moderation is important to remember. Children are very aware of their surroundings. If they are surrounded by phones, TV’s, and computers they will play with them but the same goes for educational toys. When we surround our children with open ended activities they are more likely to participate and get creative. In an article The Importance of Play in Promoting Healthy Child Development and Maintaining Strong Parent-Child Bonds by Kenneth R. Ginsburg he states, “Play allows children to use their creativity while developing their imagination, dexterity, and physical, cognitive, and emotional strength. Play is important to healthy brain development. It is through play that children at a very early age engage and interact in the world around them.” Please help us give more children an opportunity to bring their imagination to life.
