Topic: Toys and a child's developmental age

Selecting toys for children may seem easy but there are quite a few things a mom must consider, for example, the age of a child and his/her developmental age. Choosing a toy that is catering for your a child's developmental needs is essential.

One concrete example is:

1. Toddlers like toys that involve movement. This is a critical stage for them to develop their muscle control; children this age also have a good control of their fingers, so toys that involve the use of this part can be beneficial. Building blocks, coloring books, drawing using large crayons, or picture books can be the best choice for children of this age.

Choosing the appropriate toys for your children is beneficial especially if you want to help them develop their functional skills in a specific age-group.

Re: Toys and a child's developmental age

We give toys to children for them to show they loved and cared. Parents tend to buy advanced age-appropriate toys for their kids.
As you give presents, these are really appreciated by kids especially if the toys are described as big and colorful.
We know that toys are crucial to the development of child motor and intellectual capabilities.

But are parents aware of the following:

1. Is it safe?
Inspect the materials used. (passed safety standards)
Be observant on the toy edges (sharp edges or pointed)
Buying stuff toys - check the  eyes, noses, and other small parts should be securely fastened (to avoid the risk of choking)
Watch how it moves. (it may hurt the child)
Sound of the toy loud (It may cause ear injury)
Toys with heat elements (it may cause burn)
Toys with small batteries (pose threat if swallowed; mercury content)

2. Is it age-appropriate?
Suitable on child age, interests and skills (Set aside the toys appropriate for older children and younger ones)

We do love our children and give what's best for them.

So be sure we give what is the correct toy for our loved one.

Re: Toys and a child's developmental age

That's a great advice thank you for sharing that to us. I have a two toddlers at home. My youngest child thinks that she can eat  every thing that she can grab on the floor. So it is best not to give them toxic and very tiny objects. wink

Yes, toddlers tend to put everything they hold onto inside their mouth. So toys which are big in dimensions (ie building block, big legos, large coloring pens) are most suitable for them. smile

Re: Toys and a child's developmental age

My first child never mouthed anything. He just wasn't interested. My little girl on the other hand - she puts everything in her mouth! It's been such a learning curve. We've had to really watch what we give her. I don't even like her playing with older toys that were handed down from my parents in case they have lead paint on them.
