Playing with toys is not just a fun pastime, but it is also a learning experience for your child. Kids are fascinated by toys and can easily play for hours at a time, but this mostly happens when a toy is fun and engaging. Human beings are curious by nature, and children even more so. You can help your child in their educational development by providing them with stimulating toys which can encourage their curiosity.
As the years pass, and I watch society grow increasingly dependent on technology, I start to realize that mine was probably one of the last generations to have experienced a healthy and happy childhood. From tablets to smartphones, today children are preoccupied with objects that rob them of their attention and prevent them from focusing on the real world. Instead of the simplistic toys of the past, today kids are playing with things that are electrical, computerized, and I must say, expensive. Quite sad, isn't it?
