Toys are very effective in making children learn. They kindle sparks of creativity among children. Many innovators of our time have agreed that their exposure to toys in childhood shaped their ability to think differently.
Toys keep children engaged. Some involve physical activity while some involve them in mental gymnastics. In either case, toys provide supple minds of children with several exercises that are necessary for their overall growth. Mere bookish mentality can numb their versatility. After all a nation is only as good as its children. Harder we work in structuring their behaviors, tougher it gets. Some ‘play’ is good for all of us.
Let them loose. Make them feel comfortable. Let them blossom. Toys are a nice way to make them feel that we care for them. While gifting/buying a toy always have faith that it is more than rubber and plastic. A hungry brain might imagine carving an ‘apple’ out that very piece of plastic. Rockets and airplanes would have remained a fantasy forever had it not been for toys that gave them their first flight. Someone has to step forward and design a ‘robot’ so that everyone starts aspire to have one.
Making toys takes a lot of maturity. Choosing right toys is not a child’s play then!
