Give a child a brand new toy -- almost any toy -- and odds are, you have got a happy child. Young children generally aren't fussy when it comes to infant toys and kids toys, but parents must be.
Toys are more than simply playthings, however, and while they should be fun, they should likewise be age-appropriate, stimulating, and safe. "Toys must be considered as developmental learning tools."
When picking age-appropriate infant toys or kids toys for a young child, keep these tips in mind:


Keep them simple.
Toys that do too much do not permit a child to use her own imagination. Dolls and stuffed animals that talk or sing or direct kids to press certain buttons basically take responsibility for the play scenario once the kid should be the one directing the action. "If a toy is too specific, it is limiting and it simplifies the child the ability to use her creativity," says Panaccione. "The best toys are often the simplest ones like cubes -- because they allow children to be spontaneous and creative."
Establish limits on electronic toys and video games.
mr immortal are living in a digital era, and every parent who believes she could keep her child -- even a toddler -- away from computers and the like forever is kidding herself. However, for young kids, particularly, it's vital to set limits. Research has suggested that digital toys pose several potential dangers for children's health and development, including hearing loss (from loud toys), weight gain (from becoming inactive whilst playing), and developmental and language delays. 1 recent study at Temple University revealed that toys that don't require a child to do anything but watch promote a passive learning style, which may interfere with learning to think independently. "Toys that have flashing lights and continuous modifications and movement don't require a child to pay attention to any one thing for very long. Kids using these toys often can find it difficult to focus on something such as a publication or non-moving toy."
As stated by the American Academy of Pediatrics, children under age 2 should not watch TV or play video games at all; kids over 2 should have their"display time" limited to 1-2 hours every day.
