I remember growing up with toys from the 70′s and 80′s, and nowadays the toys have become a lot more interactive than back then…did I just tell my age? My kids on the other hand have had the break though of technology infuse into their toys. I can remember anything that lit up was cool to have back in the late 90′s. Then, there were the toy laptops…My older daughter had to have one and I found it amazing that even I was sitting on the floor with her playing right along.
There are a lot of toys that stuck out during that time period and were my favorites. I know Not-So-Rude-Dad loved cars and action figures when we were younger. We have always tried to give our kids a well rounded play environment. We would buy them the all too popular interactive toys, but we also balanced those out with some of our favorite toys from when we were growing up. I can remember our oldest being hooked on a Slinky and yo-yo! Those kinds of toys have lots of memories attached to them from Jack and I. Then of course there are the building blocks, yep, this girl played with Legos and loved it. I could play with them for hours and never get tired of seeing how high my building could go before it fell over.
All kids should be able to have a wide variety of toys in their toy boxes. Play is ultimately a way for them to learn about sharing and being able to use their imagination. Toys are more than just something to keep our kids busy…they are a path way for them to learn and create as they grow. So, it is always a great idea to make sure you ignite that creativity inside them by providing them with access to simple toys and interactive toys that spark their spirit.
