Toys for your baby

. 10/12/08

Toys are objects fashioned or manufactured purposely for children playing. Toys for children are not only for playing but they also help them to learn. With them they discover their identity, their bodies grow strong, and sometimes they explore relationships, and practice skills they require as adults.

Toys are more than simple amusement; the way that they are used profoundly influence many aspects of life. Toys serve multiple purposes in both humans and animals. They provide entertainment while fulfilling an educational role. Toys for children enhance cognitive behavior and stimulate creativity. They aid in the development of physical and mental skills which are necessary in later life.

One of the simplest toys, a set of simple wooden blocks and trains is also one of the best toys for developing minds. Andrew Witkin, director of marketing for Mega Brands told Investor's Business Daily that, "They help develop hand-eye coordination, math and science skills and also let kids be creative." Other toys like Marbles, jackstones, and balls serve similar functions in child development, allowing children to use their minds and bodies to learn about spatial relationships, cause and effect, and a wide range of other skills as well as those mentioned by Mr. Witkin

Certain toys, such as Barbie dolls and toy soldiers, are often perceived as being more acceptable for one gender than the other. It has been noted by researchers that, "Children as young as 18 months display sex-stereotyped toy choices”. Playing with toys stereotyped for the opposite gender sometimes results in negative consequences from parents or fellow children.

Toys for children come in very many different kinds such as dolls, cars, puzzles, collectibles, construction sets, and miniatures and so on. A child who plays with toys grows up with an open mind to learn new things everyday.
