Children’s toys have pedagogical and educational value
Adults are often confused about buying and getting children’s toys. Children often receive a toy without pedagogical value (dominoes, plastic gun, playing cards, etc.). The best option is to get the child a toy that will introduce something new into the child’s miniature world. These are toys that every child will encounter at home, on the street, at school and later in everyday life and work.
Today, there are conditions for a child to receive an educational and useful toy. Manufacturers focus on the production of technical toys.
- Technical toys for boys enrich children’s imagination and enable versatile work. At the same time, they encourage the child to learn details about modern life.-Such toys (for example, small railway stations, cars that move on an adjustable track, etc.) enable the child to combine, build and create. Even a small child (who does not go to school yet) can create, create and assemble a house from his imagination with the help of cubes and elements at an early age. There are hundreds of types of such educational toys (boxes). For example, “Little Builder” is a toy that can be used to build houses, garages and the like by stacking prepared blocks (or individual building elements). Wood is a useful material for making such toys, although “plastic mass” is used a lot around the world. Such a box contains plastic materials of various colors, so the child’s newly built house (or any object) will be more lively and interesting.
- Female children can learn a lot from household toys-And here today there are faithful replicas (in the form of toys) of a kitchen, dining room, tailor’s salon, hair salon, doctor’s office and the like. There are electrified children’s kitchens with a real grill and a stove of low installed power. A child can even cook a meal on these toys. In such a kitchen you can find a refrigerator, kitchen utensils, various blenders, grinders. This shows that the children’s stove is not just a tin box but a true electrical device.
- More complicated toys for grown-up children – grown-up children can also use some complicated toys. Thus, boys (of early school age) can build airships from various kits and under the guidance and possibly supervision of an adult. For example, they can install miniature drive electric motors on already built boats (ships). A crane, carousel, mixer and other interesting and useful objects can be driven with miniature electric motors. For children with a special gift who want to experiment at the same time, the experimental box “Electronic technician” is recommended, which offers over 60 different experiments in electrical engineering and low current. The child will be delighted and satisfied if he assembles a “living object” (electric motor, telephone, telegraph, electric bell) from several inanimate objects. There are also other educational toys with a similar purpose (for example Little Chemist, Little Farmer, Little Doctor and similar).
- Children create work habits with toys – toys are an excellent tool for acquiring work habits in early childhood. The toy should not only entertain the child, but also be a kind of educator and direct the child to useful creativity.
- A useful and pedagogically oriented toy will fill many free hours of every child – adults should answer the question whether a new toy (or a toy they would like to get for a child) is just fun or they want to achieve something with the purchase of a toy (for example, combine fun and useful ).
