Toy stamps and colorful beads may not seem like great toys, but they do enhance a little girl‘s creativity and imagination and introduces her to the arts and crafts. For young boys, getting their own set of wheels can become such a bone of contention. Getting their own bikes or toy cars is part of their pretend play to be like their dads.
Funny how teenagers and adults can still find themselves satisfied with the same kids toys offered to them when they were small. Though their likes are now focused on things that are useful and those popular in the society, kids toys are still as important as the latest gadget or the latest fashion trends. Males still prefer to have motorcycle or car toys in their closets as an ornament while females are happy shopping and receiving cuddly stuffed toys or dolls.
The kid‘s toys that we always choose to save are the ones that the gift giver has personalized. The kids love the toys that have been printed with their names or have been personalized to the sport they enjoy. The other toys that seem to find their way back into the toy box each year are the ones that are part of a special collection. Barbie was never important to my daughter. We always donated them. However my son still gets out every hot wheel car in his collection to play with at least once in awhile. Those toys have personal meaning. I can‘t bear to give them away. The toys that are adorned with the children‘s names end up finding their way to a high shelve to live out their lives.
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
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.
When I choose toys for kids, I keep in mind that these will be subject to rough handling, so I choose ones that are made with sturdy material. They must be screwed properly as well, it they are joined together by screws. I choose quality over price as well, because it pays for itself in the long run. I also mend and repair toys at the first sign of damage. My seven year old‘s car toy‘s door got recently detached, and I noticed that he lost interest in it once it got broken. So what I did was just to superglue the door to the car, let it dry overnight, and it was as good as new.
