The best toys stimulate your child's imagination, encourage thinking skills and foster creativity. Children flourish with a combination of toys that foster development in different areas, including dolls and action figures, which encourage imagination, exercise and riding toys, which foster motor skills, and electronic toys and tablets, which develop digital literacy. It's also good to have a few travel toys, which can be easily brought along on trips.
Different toys are appropriate for different age groups. For infants (6 – 12 months), choose toys that feature bright colors, interesting textures and fun sounds and are free of small loose parts. For toddlers (1 – 3 years), choose bikes and riding toys, balls, puzzles and large blocks. Preschoolers (3 – 5 years) are interested building and creating, so construction sets and arts and crafts toys make good choices. They also like imaginary play, so consider play kitchens, baby dolls and dollhouses. School-age children (5 – 9 years) often enjoy board games, sports toys and electronic toys, including learning toys. For preteens (9 – 12 years), board games, electronics, card games and sports games are appropriate.
