Collection: Inspired by RIE

RIE (Resources for Infant Educators) is more commonly know as Open Ended Play. It is play with no predetermined or structured outcome. In it's simplest of forms, RIE has no right or wrong way of playing, as it allows the child to follow their imagination and let the exploration to go in any direction their creativity takes them.

In a young child's world, where routine and structure is essential, RIE offers the creative outlet to allow them to foster their own independence, decision making and critical analysis thinking. Here they explore how everything works together in their own time, their own way and at their own pace. One of the largest components of REI is to offer a safe environment with toys that do very little. The less a toy does, the more the child will use it's imagination with it.

Resources include teething & grasping toys, building blocks, push/pull toys, Piklers & Balance Boards, sensory items such as kinetic sand, playdough & rice and items that support transportation schemas (baskets, cups etc).
