There’s nothing quite as wonderful as watching a little one play with toys because as parents we want our children to learn from them, to grow and love life in general and be happy.
When my daughter was a baby, I had the tendency to buy everything in pink. My little girl had pink bedroom, pink clothes and her toys were just about all pink. It was no surprise that when she could talk she told me that she didn’t like pink.
So I decided to take her out shopping to see which toys really stood out to her. To my surprise she liked boys toys. There were cars, trucks and even soldiers. She liked puzzles, magic tricks and some of the more complicated Lego toys. Her world was much larger than mine and I was learning from her. I allowed her to explore with different types of educational toys and today my child is no longer little and as a teenager she’s grown up to become quite a bright young lady.
Kids know what they want. So my suggestion is, show them, let them have some input and you’ll be amazed at their bright little personalities!
Your child’s perfect toy is a safe one for their age group that they’ll play with to keep themselves amused, enjoy and grow from.
