Simple toys

Simple toys.

Children generally prefer toys that are less complicated and even less impressive, but suitable for use in very different situations and circumstances. dolls, that can be dressed and undressed, put to sleep, lead for a walk, prepare their meals, throw parties, play shop, dom, School. Various sets, such as, for example, "little doctor" or "little conductor”, encourage them to undertake specific thematic games, make it easier to identify with the character being played, they give the little man a feeling, that he is a real doctor or conductor, make it possible to repeat more and more new ones, richer, more fun variants.

Keep in mind when buying toys for your child, that the set should be diverse. There should be toys in it, that encourage role play, and such, that encourage running, movement, dexterity exercises, such, that allow you to concentrate silently on some activity – building, constructing, stacking, and such, that help you practice mindfulness, attention, memory, finger dexterity - lottery games, domina, pieces, fleas, matchmaking etc.

The child should manage the toys himself, feel like their rightful owner, take care of them, keep them in order and have free access to them at any time.

I know a girl, which has an enormous amount of very expensive and very beautiful foreign toys. Parents keep them in a locked cupboard. And when they give one of them to their daughter, they warn you every time, to handle it carefully, because it can be easily damaged. The girl cannot show them to her friends, take it to the yard or to kindergarten. These toys are not fun at all.

Most often, we give gifts to our children on various occasions: birthday, name day. Children's Day, New Year, Christmas or other holidays. And the older ones, already attending school, they receive gifts after being promoted to the next class, after returning from vacation or before going on winter holidays. In some families, a gift is given to a child on the day for many years, where he took a few steps on his own, where she said the first sentence. In one word, the most important events of his life are commemorated, such, that bring joy to the whole family.

The way in which the new toy is presented is also important. The child remembers for a long time, under what circumstances it was received. He enjoys impatiently untangling the strings and unrolling the parcel brought by his father from the store, but it is also happy to find it next to the bed in the morning, a new toy lying on a shelf or in a cupboard. Little Gosia's toys were "brought" by Krzyś - her beloved, giant teddy bear. He was sitting on a chair by the crib and "holding" the gift in his clumsy paws "waiting" patiently, until the girl wakes up. – How good is this cross – Gosia used to say to her mother - she always knows, what do i need to bring.

Neither did the "enchanted" mug bring gifts. The cup was plain, bought in store. Ania drank milk from it before going to kindergarten. If the milk was drunk - after returning from kindergarten, the girl would find small gifts in it: sometimes toys, sometimes sweets or fruit, and at other times books or other items bought for a child.

Sometimes a very useful toy breaks down, an interesting piece of the puzzle is missing, or we just notice, that a child's play would be enriched by some additional prop, we then buy the necessary item and hand it over without any ceremonial celebrations.
