However, safety is another very important issue that you have to take care of. Remember, the kids are always very tender and vulnerable. They don‘t have much of a common sense either. So, make sure that the toys are safe for their careless uses. Ideally, the children‘s toys should be made of soft or light materials so that the kids don‘t get injured by them. They should not have any sharp edges and things like that. Also, you have to check out the material used to make the toy. It should be non toxic. Also, the color used in the kids toys should be safe. Also, make sure that the toy does not have tiny parts as the kids can swallow them.
It‘s a fact that the life expectancy of kids toys are short but we have to face the reality; with the high pricing cost of basic commodities nowadays it is really not practical for us to buy toys frequently to replace broken ones. It is therefore important that we teach our kids how to maintain their toys. We know that at one point those toys will be broken but what we could do is to extend the life span of those toys.
The next step is to watch our kids when they play with their toys. We should observe closely if our kids intentionally break their toys. Sometimes, kids do this because they seek attention from us and they see toys as platform to release pent up emotions. Once this is the case, it is better that we spend more quality time with our kids. In some cases, kids‘ toys will get damaged because they played it too much, which is not really bad but if this happens frequent, we should talk to our kids and tell them the value of their toys. It is never too early to teach our children responsibility
Kid‘s toys are big business too which is amply proved by the millions of dollars that are poured into research for new toys and games to keep the industry alive and kicking. With so much competition around, one manufacturer tries to beat the other in innovative designs and technology that makes today‘s toys good not only for kids but for adults as well. Many times you see how a father would buy a complicated train set for his child but can‘t wait to get it set up so that he can play with it himself. All adults have a little bit of the kid in them and therefore we all love to see a new toy and how they work.
For example, the Sylvanian Family has a set of kids‘ toys that teach them the values of a family. After all, these toys belong to different families and they all live happily together in a place called Sylvania. On the other hand, the construction toys from Knex improve the scientific and technological aptitude of the kids as they think about building structures from micro units. Naturally, playing with these toys makes a kid more knowledgeable and understanding.
Gone are the days when children enjoyed simple toys such as building blocks, mechanical sets, jigsaw puzzles, dress up dolls and kitchen sets which were the usual toys that were given with much love and care by friends and relatives on special occasions such as birthdays and Christmas. Today‘s kids prefer the electronic toys and both boys and girls would rather prefer a computer game or gadget than a board game or a pack of cards. Even the dolls of today are hi‐fashion Barbies or dressed in designer clothes, whereas little girls in the past would scream with delight to get a fairy doll or one dressed as an angel.
