What Makes a Good Toy?

By: Melody Dawkins

The right toy can literally help children discover a love of learning! A well-chosen toy has certain aspects that make it valuable to a child’s growth. A good toy can be used in several different ways giving our children the power to use the toy with their own ideas and imagination.

A good toy can grow with the child through more than one developmental stage and has lots of multi-use play value. It encourages open-ended play. A good toy engages a child’s interest beyond a few minutes – they will continue playing with it. A good toy is fun, safe, durable, and attractive.
