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.
We should start by keeping track of how many and what kinds of toys of our kids have. Let us have a record which contains information such as when we bought it and when it was broken. You could also include when a toy is lost or if it would be found. It is like a record of incoming and outgoing toys from our kid. So why do we need to have a record? From our record we could easily find out details. How long one toy does lasts in my kid? How frequent do we buy them toys? The record would tell the toy‐playing‐and‐breaking‐pattern of our kids.
I also got my dad to make another toy chest, light blue this time, with the kids name stenciled on the lid. I also had some photos of them tucked inside, and on the chest are the same compartments which made it seem as if the toys had their own ”rooms” which I used to enjoy so much. Now my kids also look forward to storing their toys after playtime as I used to when I was a kid! My kids also know that they will only receive new toys during a handful of special occasions, namely on their birthdays, after the school year ends, and during Christmas. I rarely give them toys on impulse, so they know that they have to take care of the toys that they have at hand. It might sound frugal, but more than that I believe that the children get a bigger lesson on responsibility by employing these techniques.
Kids are moody. They might want one thing to play with and the very next moment they might find interest in something else. They are messy and need all their toys scattered on the floor. This cluttering requires great effort by the parents when it comes to it cleaning up. It so happens that as soon as they put the toy away the kid needs it again. On the other hand the kids do not learn to keep their surroundings clean. This is the very reason why toy storage bins are a smart choice.
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.
Experts say that playing with toys is essential to a child‘s development starting from the infant stage. Kids‘ toys like rattles, mobiles, toy teethers, and key rings help babies connect sound, sight, taste, touch, and smell to objects. Rattles do help them learn about cause and effect not to mention introduce colors and shapes. Color and shape recognition, spatial relationship awareness, hand‐eye coordination, and other motor skills are exercised through playing with educational toys that were made specifically to enhance those skills. There are also kids‘ toys that enhance the kids‘ imagination and creativity. Some toys even teach them patience (think floor puzzles) and reinforce the concept of hygiene (think bath and tub toys).
