Posted by on November 29, 2019 in Stuff with 0 Comments

Hot Toys are an essential element in the child's development, both for their recreational and pedagogical value. On the one hand, they are a tool that helps them to entertain and focus attention, and, on the other hand, it teaches them to develop capacities and make contact with the world around them. Therefore, it is important that parents know these guidelines to buy toys for their children.

10 Tips for Buying Toys

  1. Think before you buy it. What figures to buy from Hot Toys or MezcoToyz is not a decision that parents can make quickly and without a prior restatement. Getting carried away by fashions or rushing can sometimes lead parents to buy an inappropriate toy for their child, either because it is not going to contribute anything or because it really does not adapt to the child's personality, tastes or actions.
  2. Ask your child what he likes. In order for the choice of a toy to be the right one, it is necessary to know your child first. That implies knowing what he likes and what type of toy is the one that best suits his way of being. However, this does not mean that you always have to buy everything you ask for. On many occasions, unintended by television, they will want to have toys that are harmful to them. In that case, parents should make critical sense to find the balance between what their children like and what they should play with.
  3. Check that it is a safe toy. It is important to check that the toys you are going to buy meet the safety standards. Above all, look at the CE symbol, a sign in which the manufacturer tells you that the toy meets the safety requirements of current legislation, and in turn indicates the age for which the manufacturer considers that toy is suitable.
  4. Consider the age of your child. Although there are toys that can be the dream of many adults, when buying one, you have to keep in mind that the one who will play with him is your son. Therefore, in addition to your tastes, you will have to take into account the adequacy of that toy to your Age, taking into account that, for each age, there is always a suitable toy, especially in the case of the little ones:

Toys for babies from 0 to 6 months

Toys for children from 6 to 12 months

Toys for children from 12 to 18 months

Toys for children from 18 to 24 months

  1. Choose a toy with values. Something from Mezco Toyz not only has a playful value but also has pedagogical value. In this sense, it is important to keep in mind that a toy can teach your child the good and the bad. Currently, many toys are the representation of violent and sexist attitudes and vehicles of a series of counter values that as parents should be avoided. The priority should be to find that, in some way, an educational toy that manages to transmit to your child a series of values.
  2. Do not buy many toys at once or the most expensive toy. Buying excessive toys is sometimes going to translate into a contempt on the part of your child, who will not learn to value what he has. In this sense, having many toys does not mean that you will play more but that you will value less the meaning of each one of them. Similarly, buying your child the most expensive toy is not going to be synonymous with success. On many occasions, children, who do not understand expensive and cheap, but have fun, will enjoy what they like, not what it cost you the most.
  3. Look for active toys. Passivity is one of the risks of today's games. Consoles or computer games, among others, can cause children to adopt a passive attitude, accustomed to spending many hours without moving in front of a screen. On the contrary, active toys improve the physical activity of the child, helping him develop muscles (balls, bicycles, skates) as well as visual and manual coordination and dexterity (building blocks or puzzles etc.). Therefore, it is always necessary that you look for toys that contribute to enhancing your child's active play.
  4. Opt for a creative toy. The possibility of developing creativity is a requirement that all toys should meet. Crafts or puppets are some of those creative toys that will allow your child to develop their creativity and initiative while stimulating their imagination. If toys do not allow your child to have a margin to create, they will not be able to develop their ability to find solutions or contribute new ideas.
  5. Look for a toy that fosters your social skills. Parents should teach their children how to relate. The choice of a successful toy also plays an important role in this function. For this, it is necessary that, when you go to buy a toy, you choose one that fosters your child's social skills and artistic development. It will be a good way to start learning to relate to those people and things around you. Cooperative games, for example, will help you achieve this challenge.
  6. Check that your child learns something. Some toys can directly help your child learn to read or write, while others can indirectly convey some value or enrich him in some way. The most important thing is that you look for toys to have some educational aspect, something that your child can learn specific values, knowledge, or skills. Construction games, puzzles or board games can be a good example of this.
