As we grow old, our preferred toys or those that were given to us changes, sometimes they don‘t. It may vary depending on our age, gender, or our preference. Our parents provide us initially with kids‘ toys to capture our attention and obedience. As we progress, they offer us important things such as love, care, and trust. These things are much special than any material things that we would receive. The memories that kid‘s toys give us, however, will remain for such a long time when compared to any gifts that we would receive.
When I was a kid, I never really had much toys so I guess I early on, I already knew to take care of the few toys that I had. My dad, who was a bit of a handyman, made me my own wooden toy box painted bright yellow with little compartments inside, which made toy keeping as much fun for me as playing. Now that I have two kids of my own, I have taken the values that I got from preserving toys from my childhood to present. While I can afford more toys for my children now than my parents from back then, I do not splurge and still keep a practical approach when it comes to getting the kids toys. Many of the toys that my seven year old has used from before is still being enjoyed by my four year old today.
Aside from giving out to charitable institutions, you can also opt to give the toys to other children that are younger than your child. You can ask your kids to trade seldom‐used toys with their playmates, or organize a garage sale with the help of the kids. When it comes to storing stuff, on the other hand, you need to remember that kids generally use the whole house during playtime. This is why it‘s ideal to organize storage spaces in each room for easy access. For bedrooms, for instance, you can allocate a closet that will be easily accessible to your children. This is to allow them to get and keep their toys without having to ask for help every time. Apart from utilizing low‐level cabinets, you can also keep toys in boxes and bins you can put under the bed.
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
There are several brands that manufacture children‘s toys. As a parent you have to make sure that you have purchased the right one for your kids. One of the factors that you have to remember for that is the message that the toy sends to the kid. Another very important factor to consider is whether the toy is appropriate for the age. In fact, some brands categorize their toys in different age groups. This makes it easier to purchase the right one as you can easily pick up the toys proper for the age of your kids. Well, if you are not picking up the right toy according to the age, it may not appeal to your kids at all.
Although toy storage can be quiet expensive, you don‘t have to spend a lot of money on it. There are a couple of ways to keep your kid‘s room organized even without purchasing toy storage. You know those clear boxes used for shoe storage? You could always use those keeping your kids‘ toys, especially for the little toys that would get lost in big toy boxes. You can have one kind of toy per box. Like, one box for building blocks; one box for toy cars and one box for art supplies. This way, your kids can just grab one and play. No need to take all toys out, unlike if you‘re kid has only one box for all the toys.
