Many or few toys

Many or few toys.

In the third year of life, the child is completely in control of his movements. It's completely safe, can run, jump, sit, climb on toes, throw in any direction, begins to descend from the gaits, alternating one step at a time, and once the other leg, loves to overcome various obstacles, climb low walls, walk on them.

Speech is also enriched and perfected during this period. Only the closest people can communicate with a small child; for it uses many 'own words'”, pronounces words indistinctly, twists them. In the third year of life, his vocabulary becomes more and more extensive, pronunciation became more understandable. He can build simple sentences and communicate with adults using speech. Thanks to this, among others, his knowledge of the world increases immeasurably, especially about the immediate surroundings. This is reflected in the games, which are getting richer.

The child continues to imitate the activities of adults. Primarily these, they do around him. And so: washes the doll, combing her (instead of a comb, he often uses a completely arbitrary object - a stick or a block), then feeds (not with a spoon, but a random item) puts you to sleep, rocks. These activities are usually accompanied by a monologue delivered by the child. Although it still operates with a modest vocabulary, language is not always understandable, but it says something constantly to its toys, explains something to them, imitates the sounds of animals, sounds made by vehicles. And he expects adults to be interested in all this, what he does. Desires, to be asked questions about the course of the game from time to time, because then he can boast, how beautifully she leads it. Sometimes they give him new ideas, indicate the direction, in which it can continue to develop the action.

Imitation games in this period of life are enriched immensely. The replayed activities begin to be arranged in a logical sequence. He carefully observes the behavior of adults, and then tries to imitate them in everything. He also slowly realizes, that in this way he assumes their roles. When, for example, he takes the doll out of the crib, washes her, comb, then she sits comfortably and begins to feed, it shows after some time, that she behaved like her mother. And when he straddles a small stool and holds a block in front of him, he imitates the roar of a car, states, that he sits behind the wheel like dad.

A variety of toys are needed for imitative play. dolls, teddy bears and other animals left over from infancy are used in them. The child will also enjoy a new doll and pram, where it can be transported, crib, linen. However, do not overdo it with the number of toys. Admittedly, their absence delays the development of a small child, but excess, and what is worse, the disorder prevailing among them, are also undesirable. The child is distracted, lost among lots of toys. The toy is fun until it's new, becomes common after some time, ceases to interest.
