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.
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.
The first rule while buying toys is to select the area of interest of child. If child has a tendency to jump all over the place, it wouldn‘t be a bad idea to get him or her trampoline. Climbing frames is yet another recommended toy and browsing the internet will get you still acquainted to a larger variety of toys. But while buying these toys, the very first question you will need to ask yourself is whether those toys are safe. If you aren‘t sure about its safety then inquire to a toy expert about the same or get in touch with the manufacturers of the product.
Organizing your kid‘s room or personal space can really be quite a challenge. This is more so if you have more than one kid. The problem mostly with cleaning a kid‘s room is that it gets messed up again as soon as you‘re done cleaning it. Kids are not aware how important it is to have a clean room, and they can‘t exactly understand this if you explain it to them. What most mothers need to understand is that explaining things to kids alone wouldn‘t really make the picture stick. Kids follow more by example. Remember the phrase ”monkey‐see, monkey‐do”?
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.
My children have thousands of toys. Each Christmas, birthday or generic holiday in between grandparents, aunts, uncles and friends load them up with the latest toy fad. One year our son ended up with two dancing Boohbah toys. Who in the world needs two of these creatures? Each year right after Thanksgiving we sit down as a family and decide what we must keep, what we can throw out and what is still okay enough for donation. I will admit I have one child who would toss it all except her dry erase board. The other is so wrapped up in his toys he wants to keep even the tiniest of broken pieces. One thing that we can come to a final agreement on is that there is someone who wants toys that won‘t have any this year and we have an abundance. The other thing we agree on is that the holiday and coming year will bring many new toys for them to enjoy.
