What kind of kids don’t like toys? Probably, these do not exist. And my daughter is no exception. Having come to the store, she is ready to wipe everything off the shelves. She is honored with dolls, teddy bears, and even cars.
I, like any mom, I like to please my baby with new toys, but I consider buying everything in the right way wrong. Five years is the age when a child should already treat toys more selectively, and not want anything that glitters and has a pink color (as in our case). Therefore, in terms of buying toys, I am a strict mother.
My daughter loves dolls. In the shop windows, she focuses mainly on long-legged beauties with makeup and bright dresses – Barbie’s analogues. We have many such dolls, but they are rarely taken from the shelf. Much more often the daughter is played with baby dolls, although outwardly they attract her much less.
We gave our daughter a popular baby doll when we learned about the upcoming replenishment in our family. They told her about how to care for little children, and that soon she will have a sister or brother.
Since then, the daughter does not part with the toy baby doll: he feeds him, puts him on the pot, changes his clothes, and rolls him in a toy carriage. She has not been interested in this toy for a long time, which is rare for us.
Up to four years old stuffed toys were the most useless for the daughter. They only gather dust on the shelves without the need. But at some point she began to fall asleep with a teddy bear, and in the garden she was wearing a pink bunny, singing a funny song.
Now soft toys in our favor. The daughter puts them to bed, dresses up their t-shirts. In addition, the daughter fell in love with role-playing games with their participation: she herself plays the role of an educator, and the plush company portrays children.
Puzzles, mosaics, sets of children’s creativity are our favorites. If she can play enough in the kindergarten with dolls and soft toys, then my child is clearly lacking creativity. Almost all the free time daughter draws, sculpts, cuts.
I am amazed at how many creative ideas a five-year-old child can have. My daughter has been making applications for a long time without my help – she invents herself, draws and cuts herself, and pastes herself. By encouraging a little girl to be creative, I often buy her various sets: sand paintings, a lot of modeling, stencils, etc.
Each child is individual, so the choice of toys must be individual. What toys do your daughters prefer?
