Whenever we go to a kid’s party we buy all kinds of different toys. But still do you know what toys to buy for your kids. Toys are a good way to kick start kid’s play and also it will affect their development. The best toys help a child’s imagination, creativity and also develop their skills in solving problems. If you do not have a clear mind in choosing the correct toys for kids, then here are some guidelines that can be helpful for you.
According to age
Age range information is important for safety and also to provide them the best foundations according to their ages. Usually, the age range is mentioned in the packets. You are the best toy and play partner for your baby. Never ignore your kid when they want to play with you. Show them what you learnt when you were in their age and encourage them whenever they fail. Toddlers love playing with boxes, building blocks and also dress ups for dolls. Building blocks can help them be more creative in building towers, houses and other stuff. When they are much older you can give puzzles and games.
What are “open ended toys?”
Open ended toys are the ones that improve skills in your child. For example puzzles, dress ups, cardboard boxes, building blocks, air hogs Australia and even balls. Also pieces of papers, crayons, pencils and water colors can build the artistic skills in your kids. Many pediatricians say that it is best to give a small place in your wall to your kid to paint on.
Do not scold them when they try to do so. Dress up may come handy when they try to pick different things for their dolls to dress. Even kitchen sets are ideal ways to teach your kid their first little lessons in cooking and serving. Air hogs come in helicopters, airplanes, rockets and cars. They are radio controlled and easy to control.
What not to give
Some toys make you feel very uncomfortable. Most parents are uncomfortable with toy weapons and matured looking dolls. Especially some toy weapon can give them wrong values like fighting and killing. Also they can be dangerous in using. But there is a positive way to look at toy weapons when they use it to defend themselves in games of cops and robbers. If you feel like they are using it in a good way, let them have but if not so, coach them. Talking of dolls, some companies produce very mature looking dolls which don’t bring that innocent look of little kids. Avoid giving your kids such toys.
