Guide To Choosing Educational Toys

What we all know is that an educational toy is a toy that helps a child learn something good, something that will help in the future. There are also toys that aren't exactly educational for children; Toy guns and other such toys that somehow tend to violence and other bad behaviors are not recommended. Any toy can be educational, as long as it does not develop a bad behavior, and it is used in your child's play. A toy must be used in order to be educational for a child.

One of the children in the group is chosen to count to 100 at the home tree (this helps young children learn the numbers in a pleasurable way, not like in school), without peeking (this educated the child to use fair play in all areas of the life).



Educational toys for children
In the last few years, parents started getting more and more interested in choosing all sorts of educational toys for their children. A toy that is labeled as educational is very likely to be bought easier than others because a parent wishes the best for his child.
What is an educational child toy?
What I do know is that an educational toy is a toy that helps a child learn something good, something that will help in the future. Learning thru play is a reality; it can and it is done unknowingly every time your child plays.
There are also toys that aren't exactly educational for children; Toy guns and other such toys that somehow tend to violence and other bad behaviors are not recommended. You must avoid such toys. These toys may be a good source of fun for youngsters, on the long term they will only do harm.


How do educational child toys and games work?
During the play, a child learns many new things. Any toy can be educational, as long as it does not develop a bad behavior, and it is used in your child's play. A toy must be used in order to be educational for a child.
To be clearer about how educational child toys and games work, I will take one example: Seek and hide.
You do remember this game right? Ok, I will still list them here, and comment on them and explain its educational side.
Every child must learn and obey them, or else they are not allowed to play the game. The educational part of this is that the child learns to accept the fact that he can not do everything he wants, that there are some limits and he must not pass them in order to keep his privileges.
One of the children in the group is chosen to count to 100 at the home tree (this helps young children learn the numbers in a pleasurable way, not like in school), without peeking (this educated the child to use fair play in all areas of the life). The others must find a good hiding place, one that is both hard to close and discover to the home tree. This stimulates the child to think fast to the best solution to a given task.
After he finished counting to 100, the child says "Ready or not, here I come" and then he must search for the other players. Once he finds a player hiding, he must run back to the home tree and shout his name.
The players who are already spotted must not tell where the others are hiding. This too educates children to use fair play.
The first player spotted is the next one to count to 100.
You 'd never think that seek and hide, one of the most common games in childhood, could be so educational? Pick any game you liked playing when you were a child, and analyze its rules, as I did above.
Seek and hide is oriented mainly towards developing fair play and physical skills.
Here's another example of educational child game that helps developing more advanced skills: Monopoly.
This game introduces your child into the basics of modern business life. This game educates your child to become the biggest businessperson on the Wall Street. Specific jargon and names that mean much to the entrepreneurs get your child closer the world of business.
Toys are amongst the first objects a child gets in contact. Toys help your child learn to grab, pull, push, synchronize the movement of the head with that of the hand.
When playing, Toys are indispensable. Playing with a great variety of educational child toys helps your child develop his imagination, understand that different objects have different properties, and learn how to combine them to create other interesting objects.
