Toys

The best toys stimulate your child’s imagination, encourage thinking skills and foster creativity. Children flourish with a combination of toys that foster development in different areas, including dolls and action figures, which encourage imagination, exercise and riding toys, which foster motor skills, and electronic toys and tablets[1], which develop digital literacy. It’s also good to have a few travel toys, which can be easily brought along on trips.

Different toys are appropriate for different age groups. For infants (6 – 12 months), choose toys that feature bright colors, interesting textures and fun sounds and are free of small loose parts. For toddlers (1 – 3 years), choose bikes and riding toys, balls, puzzles and large blocks. Preschoolers (3 – 5 years) are interested building and creating, so construction sets and arts and crafts toys make good choices. They also like imaginary play, so consider play kitchens, baby dolls and dollhouses. School-age children (5 – 9 years) often enjoy board games, sports toys and electronic toys, including learning toys[2]. For preteens (9 – 12 years), board games, electronics, card games and sports games are appropriate.

The most important aspect of a toy is that it appeals to your child, so let your child participate in picking out their next toy or game, whether it be a Lego Creator set or a Barbie doll.
