What toys do not develop the imagination of children, preschoolers

I began to stare at the windows of children’s stores when my son was born. When I was in position, I did not think at all that the child needed toys. My only thought was to give birth to a healthy and strong baby, and everything else will be.

In addition, in infancy toys are not needed for the child. At about 3 months my son was amused by the mobile, which was attached to the crib, and some rattles. He didn’t need anything else. I, considering myself a good mother, bought him various rattles, soft cubes and plush toys.

But not all toys liked my son. As a rule, out of a dozen he chose one thing. His choice was something practical and convenient. Everything else did not interest him. So it is now. In his 2 years old, he has a lot of machines, but only one favorite one. From soft toys his choice fell on the hare, whom he received as a gift for this New Year.

Recently I read an article that modern toys are capable of blocking children’s thinking, fantasy and creativity. Experts said that the child should not have many, in sufficient quantities.

And preference should be given to the classics of the genre – dolls and dolls for girls, cars and toy soldiers for boys. But there are so many games on the market! And this is a whole temptation for me to go past the store with children’s toys! What I read surprised me.

It was about the shortcomings of interactive toys. It was said that they absolutely do not develop the ability to think in a child. The kid sees how the bird sings, for example, clearly. And he considers her singing on the piano, let’s say, right and familiar. If he hears the singing of a living bird in nature, he does not immediately realize it.

In fact, interactive and so popular toys – this is a great business. Constantly there are fashionable new items that cost a lot of money, and they are bought! There are a lot of advertising, promotions, and many more kids show off toys in the yard, so they inadvertently want to buy such a thing for their children.

My opinion

The game is a very important element and activity for the child. And in the game, toys are a necessary and irreplaceable thing. For me, a good toy is the one with which it is convenient to play, which my child likes.

And if modern toys simply wave their hands, make noise and make strange sounds, they are unlikely to be able to develop something. They reduce the game to a boring and primitive button press. And very soon the child gets bored. All brightness, beautiful box and flashiness toys reduced to zero.

I also came across terrible interactive toys. It is not clear what kind of sex a person is, whether it is a man or an animal. I am generally against sexless creatures. Such toys are not associated in a child with the image of a man or with the image of an animal. Such a distortion is found today not only in children’s toys, but also in cartoons, films, TV shows, books. It is completely incomprehensible to me how this could end.


Useful and relevant toys in my opinion

I became skeptical of most toys. I choose only the most normal and decent. And I prefer the traditional toys that children play.

These are soft toys (normal animals with eyes, hands), toy soldiers, cars, the designer, tableware. From interactive toys, we have a talking alphabet, a piano and a telephone. In my opinion, a toy should not prevent a child from exploring the world and creating an imaginary space.

The help of parents does not end with the acquisition of those very toys. They need to play correctly, show how this is done to the child, start the game with him (and propose several variations of the game). In general, it is necessary to give life to a toy. Then shine and joy will be seen in the eyes of the baby.

What do you think? Do you agree with my opinion, or on the contrary, consider me a boring bore?
