The Art Of Choosing A Good Toy For Your Kids

Aug 21, 2008
Toys are important aspects of our children's lives. They give children fun, motivation and learning if used appropriately and also with proper guidance. There are a lot of things that should be remembered when choosing the appropriate toys for our kids and it should be all about their safety that comes to our minds first. Even if they have a lot of fun, we should see to it that they are safe with their toys.

There are features that we need to make sure present in the toys of our children. These characteristics should help them not only to have fun but also to help them grow mentally. One distinct feature should be suitability. There are toys that gives fun only because of its color, shape or whatever the child sees in them are funny but are really not suited for their age. The most appropriate toy would be those that can meet the child current physical capabilities, mental and social development.

Why buy a two month old a ball when he cant grasp the ball yet? It wouldn't make any sense would it? Toys are not only for fun as I have already pointed out from the beginning. They should create a helpful environment for our kids for their learning and individuality. They should help develop mental capabilities as well as meet the physical abilities of our children.

Another thing to remember would be to consider the child's interest and what appeals to him. There are toys hat our children prefers that no matter how we force them to accept a ball for example they would still want the toy car. As they grow older they develop a sense of interest and preference. There are toys that could no longer offer them fun or learning instead they offer them disgust.

As parents we should know and should be able to point what our children's preferences are when it comes to toys. If we force them to follow what we think is best, then I guess that would really give them frustrations and regret later on. The worst that would happen is when they start hating us for it. If what they choose is unsafe then it is our obligations and responsibility to teach them that they cant has they want always and guide them towards a direction of understanding and compromise.

Durability and safe for child's age is another thing to consider. Children are sometimes hyperactive and they would want their toys to keep up with their activities. If they are destroyed at the very moment they start playing with it, they would only be frustrated and dissatisfied with the toy that are supposedly give them motivation to pursue with their activities. In other words durability plays a very important role in their toys and eventually will become part of them as they grow old.

In choosing, our guidance and protection are still the best measure that will make our kids grow in the right way. If we leave them be without teaching them even with simple things such as their toys, how are we supposed to guide them throughout their entire life? This is the greatest expectations kids have of us. And we should never fail them.
