First, choose toys that are suitable for children: Choose toys to suit the needs of children of different ages, and the age characteristics of children’s psychological and physical development. For example, before the child is 1 year old, the sensory organs and activity abilities are relatively weak. Therefore, the toys purchased at this stage should help strengthen the child’s visual and auditory development of color, distance, sound, etc., like Colorful balloons, bell stalls, etc.
Second, the choice of toys must pay attention to safety and hygiene: the toys you buy should be non-toxic and sterile and easy to clean; the edges of the toys should be neat and soft, without hard and sharp shuttle corners. For young children, don’t play with small toys such as glass balls and plastic balls, so as to avoid accidents in the population. Some toys rotate too fast, or are easy to hurt others, so you should pay attention to them when buying and using them.
Third, avoid one-sided pursuit of high-end, toys are not as high-end as possible: in fact, many high-end electronic toys, because of their high degree of “automation”. Children often become general audiences, so that their ability to use their hands and brains cannot be cultivated; at the same time, the functions of high-end toys are too single, which easily restricts children’s imagination. For older children, you can buy more toys that are conducive to the development of intelligence.
In short, toys are the best tool to develop children’s intelligence. Choosing suitable toys for children of different ages will not only make children’s life full of joy. More importantly, they will develop children’s intelligence.
