How do you choose toys for kids??

October 4, 2017 3:27am CST
Today, my daughter and I went out to buy some toys.. I was really cautious about the suggested age label and was very keen on checking on every toy my kid picks up.. so we ended up buying a magnetic drawing board.. So are guys as cautious as I was? share your thought...

Our children are already grown up and they have their family. What are now doing with my wife is for our grandchildren. We have the 4-year-old granddaughter with us. She's smart. When we bring her to the mall, she's the one who choses her toys and she knows what's best for her.

I let my kids choose their toys. And then if its expensive i will explain to them that i cant afford it. And if its too complicated for their age i will explain how to play it and i let them decide if they still want to buy it. Or if it is a boring toy for younger age i will also explain it to them.

I am very careful what I buy for my granddaughter. They don't have a large house somIngo for one quality thing instead of lots of things. She is 2 and really into cars and trucks so I got her a well-made wooden carvtoy made in Germany. I hope it will last well and she can give it to her children too.

It should be with children's interest as well as it should give some msg to him for learning purpose.

I chose what my son wants. Usually he will select all about study purpose.

We chose very carefully, toys needed to be educational and were expected to be both durable and of extended interest to the child. My kids for a lot of books, Legos, craft supplies and puzzles.

My children's favourite toys were often the box the toy came in. Toys were selected for their play value and durability. Duplos/Legos are still played with....but now by my grandchildren. Many of the toys my children played with are experiencing a second debut with the grandkids. I must have chosen well. The toys are still going strong.

Being cautious is just the proper thing to do because some of the toys are hazardous to children.

Yes. We have to be cautious when buying children gifts. Some gifts can be harmful to small kids since most kids think of eating everything they get in their hands.

Children know what they need, we have to follow their needs and make them make right decision in picking it. Sometimes I behave like kid and choose toys that I am going to play with. I have two small kids and I am very happy to play together with them.
