VHK STOCK SEAR* MOVED -VKXT TO D.n McFeik, Pr.p. DR. CARRY C. MYERS, PH. D. Child PsyeholoRist WHEN YOU select toys for the young child, try to answer a few questions. Is the toy safe? Is it strong? Can he play with it without the aid of an older person? Will it interest the child? Will he like it over a period of days, weeks and months? Will the toy stimulate activity? Can it be used in many ways? Will it cultivate invention and creation in the child? For the child beyond two or three, ' try to find some playthings which several children will enjoy together. .Let paiut not delude you in choosing :oys for children, for the young child be sure the paint, if you must have it, is non-poisonous. A few outstanding manufacturers specialize on making pointed toys safe. But manufacturers put on the paint for adults, not for children. At the factory which makes more paint brushes than any other in the world, I was told that nearly all persons who do their own painting about the house, especially women, must have brushes with bright colors, while skilled painters practically always choose plain brushes. Many of us are led astray by paint. Toys Too Old. Also in choosing toys for children under about six, we are inclined to select those too "old:" while for older children, too "young." Beginning with the baby, keep down the number o£ toys purchased at one time. Many toys all at once tend to make the child scatter-brained, careless and even destructive. When we will have grown more sensible, we will purchase toys all the year around, I adding a new one from, time to i time suited to the child's develop- j ment. Properly then we will spend i more money annually for toys j than at present. Beyond the age of three or four let us put emphasis on tools, good tools, and materials for creation and construction. Don't overlook the typewriter as an excellent gift, especially for the high school and college student. Get Good Books. And good books! In that fine new book, "Birthright of Babyhood," by Clarence Sumner, you will find the best list of books for parents to read from to the preschool child—an excellent Christmas present for a young mother. Go to your librarian for advice on buying books. Don't overlook the old classics for children. Write me the age of your child, in care of this paper, inclosing a self-addressed stamped envelope, and I will be glad to send you free a list of books, or of playthings, or of both, suitable for your child.
