Does the toy look good? Younger children love bright colors and happy images. A more sophisticated looking toy for older children will challenge their minds and pique their curiosity more. Will the toy last for a long time? Its always wise to select a toy that will last more than a few minutes. Toys can be put through an endurance test by children. Is it powered so you will need to have replacement batteries on hand? Cheaper and more flimsy toys may not last as long, or provide as much of a lasting educational experience, as a quality toy which may cost a little more.
Socially, kids in this age group are more interested in belonging to their peer group than they were in the preschool years. They have become less interested in playing with kids of the opposite sex preferring friends of the same sex. They have developed increased skills in cooperative playing with groups of kids, so they get more enjoyment from group activities. They are at the beginning stages of being able to participate in competitive team sports. They have an increased sense of fairness and in living up to standards, both for themselves and for the groups they belong to. They continue to grow more interested in dramatic plays so they get increased enjoyment from producing shows and plays. They have entered the beginning stages of showing interest in the bigger community. With their new skills, kids are eager to find new ways to experiment and explore. Providing them with age-appropriate learning toys can help them achieve healthy child development.
