The Ministry of Development and Social Inclusionthrough Cradle More, realized “1,2,3 Toy”, a space with a wide catalog of games to contribute to the overall development of children. The program has digital platforms that facilitate access to various games for all minors to apply their knowledge.
These interactions promote new neural connections and contribute to self-regulation of emotions, as well as promoting learning and physical skills in boys and girls under 36 months.

Lourdes Sevilla Carnero, executive director of the Cuna Más National Program, explained that children usually play and interact with their relatives, generating many stimuli that will make them feel comfortable. “A child who plays and interacts with their mothers, fathers and/or primary caregivers feels cared for, cared for and loved. There is no age for them eitherpstart experiencing these positive emotions. For example, there is no better toy for a baby than the face, hands and skin of the adult who cares for it. There he finds many stimuli such as human warmth, his smells, the shapes, the sounds he makes and all the love he needs to feel safe and learn to trust people”.
In addition, the director pointed out that the purpose of these toys is to develop fine motor skills, sensitivity to perceptions, etc. “Each toy featured strives to provide viewers with experiences and interactions similar to those we promote as a social program through our day care and family support services. In addition, they are designed to encourage activities that exercise or strengthen, depending on the age of our girls and boys, their fine motor skills, sensitivity to perception, problem solving, decision making, hand-eye coordination, imagination development, identification and expression of feelings and emotions and interaction with the surrounding environment”.
This program appeared in 2020 to continue to connect with users due to the context of the health emergency due to COVID-19. Also, remind them of the invaluable contribution of childhood and free play in the lives of girls and boys under 36 months of age.

According to the guidelines that the social program promotes, aligned with the seven achievements of early childhood development (ECD), the game allows girls and boys to create new neural networks, which increases their brain processing speed. Likewise, this activity has been confirmed by scientific research around the world, accompanied by the generation of a series of brain hormones that work with serotonin, acetylcholine, dopamine, endorphins and enkephalins, which are produced thanks to the emotions while children play. Therefore, every time a minor plays and interacts with the people around him, he is exercising his own means to express himself in a positive way.
“A healthy, safe and happy early childhood not only requires children to enjoy good health and nutrition, but also to be able to develop critical thinking skills, communicate effectively and on their own initiative, and have the confidence to express His emotions. Play facilitates the exercise of all these skills, so its promotion, in a safe, non-violent environment and in constant interaction with their mothers, fathers and primary caregivers, is essential to predict a prosperous and potentially good future for the first childhood”Sevilla Carnero pointed out.
