toys they are chosen according to the personality and age of the child, which makes it essential to know the child and his / her preferences. Parents should carefully choose toys because they are responsible for the education of the child. The labels of the toys must be read carefully because they have an indication for a certain age.
For example, a toy contraindicated before the age of 3 years, can be considered dangerous because it can be swallowed or may predispose to another type of accident. Any toy that can be broken up into smaller parts, or made up of blunt components, should be avoided before the age of 3 years.
They are recommended solid toys, without sharp or sharp edges, large enough not to be inserted into the nose or mouth and to avoid any possible injury.
Expensive toys are not necessarily better, but they are probably safer. Cheap, poorly assembled toys should be avoided as much as possible. In the case of a small budget, it is recommended to reduce the number of purchased toys and buy some quality toys.
Choosing the right toy takes into account several things. It is recommended to choose a well-known toy, used by other children, which has proven to please most children of that age. The most sought after toys are the simple, large, beautifully colored and which are provided with different accessories that can emit sound or luminous stimuli.
The choice of a toy also takes into account the preferences of the child, we can see that in a profile store, it is attracted more by certain products than by others. Experienced people (parents with more children, educators) can give valuable advice on choosing a toy that is best suited for the young child.
Careful reading of labels on the packaging of toys should be done carefully, as this specifies the minimum age at which the toy can be used without posing any danger to the safety or health of the child.
Although a more complicated or evolved toy may seem at first the best choice for the child, in reality it can be a source of frustration either because it is not appropriate for the age or because it does not know how to use it. It can also be dangerous most of the time.
For example, an extra toy that is recommended over the age of 3 years may at first seem a good choice for children younger, but in reality it can become dangerous, especially if it is provided with plastic eyes, buttons or other accessories that can be easily swallowed by the child.
The age indication on the packaging of the toys does not guarantee the safety of its use, because the neuropsychological development for the same age, education or personality of the child differs, thus it is quite difficult to determine the optimal age for using the respective toy.
If you want to buy a toy without indicating the optimal age for use, the possibility of possible accidents should be considered. for example, at a young age, small toys are not recommended, or at least not those that can be easily inserted into the mouth, nostrils or ears. An object or toy that can be inserted through a cylinder with a diameter of about 2-3 cm (eg inside a toilet paper roll) should be avoided because it can cause serious accidents or even the death of the child (choking).
Also, toys or objects that can be easily disassembled into smaller parts, toys that can be chewed and then swallowed (plasticine, for example not recommended before the age of 3 years!), Ribbons or ropes (in rare cases may not be recommended) causes strangulation of the unattended child), etc.
In fact, any toy can cause more or less serious injuries, but this should not become an impediment to their purchase.
The durability of toys is another important factor that we think about when buying a toy, especially if this is expensive. Ideally, all toys should be indestructible. Usually, the child's tendency to spoil, break or destroy toys is not fully understood by parents.
The research spirit and curiosity of the child are often illustrated by the destruction of toys or other objects with which he plays. The resistant toys, the assembled ones suitably satisfy this intention fully justified and are a practical and economical measure for the parents.
