Everything is going electronic and toys are no exception. Old fashioned playthings – like balls and building blocks are fast being replaced by gizmos that zoom around the room at the push of the button.
Such toys provide instant entertainment, but contribute little to the child‟s psychological and physical development. A child building a tower with a basic set of blocks is having fun- he claps and laughs when the tower stands – but he is also developing some vital skills. He learns to focus his attention, improves his hand and eye coordination and learns to visualize a goal. When the tower tumbles, he learns to approach the task in a different way. Toys which allow unstructured play encourage imagination and creativity. Child psychologists feel that the high-tech novelties that we buy for children actually rob them of opportunities of mental and physical development. Many of the skills we use as adults were developed during playtime with the help of basic toys. Therefore, psychologists suggest saving some space for toys that work on kid power.
Old fashion toys are better than electronics. Electronic toys only add little development on kids in mental and physical development compared to old fashion toys. Basic toys has more benefits including entertainment, build creativity ,skills and develop goals. Psychologist stated, playing basic toys in early life help during adulthood. Also, it is important for the parents to find toys that give kid’ s power.
