Investing in Good Old Toys for Your Kids
The possible negative impact on the toddler’s mind on loud and noisy toys is creating an environment that evokes feelings of war or emergency or action, instead of a calmer or quieter toy to encourage an imaginative play, besides, it’s a well know fact that toddlers have a tendency to put things into their mouth, therefore, noisy, plastic toys are dangerous for them to play with, aside from the toxic materials that they are made of. In today’s toy trend, the value of good interaction is almost gone, leaving the child to play in a passive manner; that’s why the good old school toys are much preferable because their designs encourage real, physical activity, as well as imaginative play, and most materials are organic, like wood.
Remembering the old radio flyer
Kids, ages 2 to 5, get as much fun steering their feet and strengthening their motor skills with a radio flyer wagon or trike, which will never be outdated, as this fluid, push-pull rowing toy or scoot-along vehicle is still fun riding on them because they are both light and easy to maneuver.
Having fun with the good old wooden blocks
Wooden blocks are one toy that a child should not be without, as educators agree, because this toy encourages not only imaginative play, but its complex structures help to stir up the intellectual and analytical part of the child’s mind, allowing the child to be immersed in the building of secret rooms, soaring towers, daring bridges, and many more. Toddlers of ages 2 to 8 will find the interest and feat to be builders in their own imaginative environment with their wooden block toy, which has stood the test of time with its great features of smooth, solid wood blocks in interesting shapes and pieces.
No one can go wrong with the old classic board games, such as Monopoly, Snakes and Ladders, etc., because kids can quickly pick them up and the best part about board games is that the whole family can have fun playing with it altogether.
The cuddly teddy bear
We always have loving and cuddling memories of our teddy bear toy, such that we went through stages from a toddler to child receiving our first teddy bear, giving us the idea that the cuddly teddy bear will continue to be one of the most popular toys around the world.
There is just something fun and exciting about miniature, wooden playhouses, allowing children to unleash their creative side and build their social skills and taking an imaginative role play about family life and the environment.
