A Guide in Introducing Toddler Toys

Apr 10, 2008
The birth of a child is one event that is most eagerly awaited by family, relatives, and friends alike. Even before the expected birth month happens, baby showers are held to welcome this tiny bundle of joy.

Finally, the day big day arrives. Proud mom and dad are eager to show off their pride. It is so hard to contain the parents happiness, most especially, such that more visits are expected from well wishers who want to meet the newest member of the family.

A welcoming party may be held to give everyone a chance to see this little baby wonder. There is so much outpouring of love and well wishes from guests.

Time flies so quickly that baptism and the first birthday is soon celebrated. In occasions such as these, the couple is overwhelmed with a lot of gifts in the form of baby clothes, a crib, strollers, blankets, baby accessories, and even jewelry.

Of course, who could ever forget the numerous toys in all forms, shapes, and sizes to entertain the little one. Mommy will be so excited with the various toys received that the playroom is soon filled up with all attractive and colorful stuff.

How can parents be guided in setting up the playroom? When is the best time to introduce a specific kind of toy? The toddler is a very interesting stage to behold. During this stage, the toddler learns to explore everything and anything it fancies. Not only does he try to test his physical strength, he also tries to get hold and manipulate anything that gets within his reach.

Aside from safety and the entertainment value of toys, they should be more importantly educational. Parents cannot spend all their time playing with their kids, much as they want to. Thus, the best way to maximize learning is to introduce toddler educational toys.

Expect the toddler to walk and run to what catches his fancy. This may be the stairs, the furniture or the tricycle. As he tries to scribble and plays with pens and crayons, provide him with writing pads lest he writes on the newly painted walls or on the matching sofa that adorns the living room. Push and pull toys are the favored companions of toddlers as they move from place to place.

As the language skills develop, take out the play kitchens or play sets to allow the child to take on roles he imagines himself to be. Enhance his vocabulary by pointing out the names and the functions of things around him. Let him sort things out according to shapes and colors. This will teach him the relationship of one object to a set or to another toy.

Socially, the toddler imitates the adult, an older playmate or sibling. Being conscious of the words spoken around the child, definitely is a good training for the child to learn good values. A positive approach also encourages him to try things further and accomplish the tasks he is set to do.

Introducing the appropriate toy for a toddler gives the little one a sense of accomplishment. It is therefore unwise for the parents to take out all the toys at the same time and let the child discover the fun by himself. Chances are he will get frustrated when faced with complicated toys way beyond his skills. Make the toddlers learning experience fun and meaningful.
