So for anyone who thinks that toys are toys are toys are toys, boy have I got some news for you……There is more to this toy business than anyone ever gave a lot of thought to, unless of course your business is developing and marketing new toys to the world (however big or small your world may be). As a parent, grandparent, aunt, in all my different roles, I have tried my best to search out things that would fill the following criteria for my children, grandchildren, neices and nephews. They have to be:
5. Help them to learn something new
6. Make them want to come back and have more fun
8. Makes them think!
There is nothing more disheartening than spending a lot of money on something that they play with for 10 minutes and then throw into the toy box, where it will sit until Mom and Dad do a clean up, clear out!
The aim is to spend the money on things that they will play with until it is totally used up or grown out of!
I think I will have to persue this line of thinking and come up with as many suggestions as you can use for your benefit and your children’s benefit.
What toys do your children really love? Let me know and I will check it out to see if it makes one of my many lists to come!
Your feedback is always welcome!
