When I became a mother, I started buying toys for my daughter. But, she spends most of her time playing with bowls and spoons. What I found is children love to play, but they don’t need toys. My daughter keeps herself entertained with random objects in the house. She is more interested in exploring new objects rather than looking at her toys.
Toddlers are not aware from where to buy toys. But, somewhere with the aim of giving the best, we are encouraging the habit of fulfilling the demand and getting kids the toys before they ask, or use toys to bribe or make them happy. Sometimes parents feel like their children will be left out if he or she will not have the latest toy. Few feel a sense of luxury and status by giving new and expensive toys.
According to research, kids should have minimum toys. Giving them more toys will encourage them to demand more and become less responsible. I have seen wise parents who save money and don’t buy toys until their kids are three years old.
Here are the few reasons to avoid too many toys:
- Kids take everything for granted.
- They keep asking for toys as bribes.
- They will not value the things they have.
- They will have less attention.
- Too many toys can curb creativity and attention.
- They will get bored with the toys available, and they will throw tantrums for new.
Playing with fewer toys benefits kids with their overall development, such as:
- They will be more creative.
- They will focus more on what they have.
- They will learn to take care of fewer toys.
- They will have social capabilities.
- They will explore outdoor and indoor activities.
- They will be more patient.
- They will learn to be grateful.
- They can concentrate more.
- The room will be clean and tidy.
Happy Reading and Happy Parenting!
