Page 44 The Salina Journal — Thursday, November 26,1981 TOY LAND TIPS: Thanksgiving kicks off the opening of Christmas toy buying season By United Press International The weekend after Thanksgiving traditionally opens the Christmas shopping season and Santa's helpers need to pack some information along with the Christmas shopping list before venturing into their store's Toyland. Without information about a kid's interest levels and toys suitable for various ages, babes — and uncles, aunts and grandparents — in Toyland might come close to losing their minds. They will circle things that beep, blink, talk, walk, roll, fly, race, cry, or honk until their minds go pop. In the noise and confusion they also run the risk of buying the wrong toys. A little kid toy for a big kid — or vice versa, or toys that bring tears instead of gleams to kids' eyes. Douglas Thomson, president of the Toy Manufacturers of America, the toy industry trade association, said a toy should fit a child's age and interest level. That's why uncles, aunts, grandparents and even parents need information about toys for particular age brackets and interest levels before they go to battle in the toy stores. They also need to shop around. "Don't just buy something you've seen on television," he said. "Shop around and look at the toys. Are they well made? How durable are they? "Shops carry a wide variety of prices. If you shop around, you can get real values. Some stores carry toys at loss leader prices." Asked about prices, he said: "You can pay from $1.49 to $249 for Christmas toys. You can get a nice coloring book and crayons for $1.49 and a video game outfit for the television set for $249." And whatever you settle on, don't forget the batteries — if a toy is battery operated. "There's nothing worse than a toy that won't work," Thomson said. What does a child want from Toyland? "This year, a little piece of the adult world," says Thomson. "Today's toys are tomorrow's adult tools, scaled down versions of real life objects. Here are tips, from TMA and others, on types of toys for various age groups. • Babies under 18 months: Brightly colored, lightweight toys of varied textures that will stimulate their senses of sight and feel. These toys should be washable, too big to swallow, and free of sharp corners, rough edges, or things that can be pulled off and put in the mouth, stuck in the eye or otherwise injure. For the crib set, a first toy might be a colorful mobile. Later come things to hold — things that rattle, squeak. Strings of big beads to chew and bang are good. When baby sits up, blocks with rattles or pictures on them, nesting cups or boxes and stacking toys are good. For creepers and walkers, push-pull toys are hits. So are musical and chime toys. Good, too, are simple take-apart and put-together toys. And plush dolls and stuffed animals. Creepers and toddlers also like to bang on metal pie plates and pots and pans. Little boxes — rolled oats to shoe boxes — make superb playthings. • 10 to 12 years: Skills developing. Hobby and craft stuff good. Model kits, magic sets, advanced construction and handicraft kits, chemistry and science sets, jigsaw and other puzzles. Sports equipment, from tennis rackets to footballs. Board and electronic games help develop social skills, particularly those requiring strategy decisions and knowledge acquired in school. Table tennis, billiards, sports games. Dramatic play still holds great appeal for many. Now they like to plan entire productions, ranging from props, costumes and painting of programs. Puppets, marionettes. Painting, sculpting, ceramics and other art forms of interest. Musical and scientific instruments, records an books. • Teenage: After age 12, interest in playthings start to merge with those of adults. Sports equipment, board games, and the more expensive, sophisticated, electronic computer-based toys and games. Frequently such things bear a label that says "family." Play, by the way, is child's work. Toys are the work tools, say authorities. Dr. Maria W. Piers, of the Erikson Institute for Early Education in Chicago, says: "Through play, children learn and polish skills — social, emotional, physical, mental. If children did not play, they could not thrive and they might not survive." Sixty to 70 percent of the toys America buys are purchased at Christmas. P.S. — All Santa's helpers should avoid buying toys to please themselves. Such toys usually are too sophisticated. Singers needed for MC chorus The Marymount college music department is organizing a community chorus to perform with the Salina Symphony in its annual Christmas concert Dec. 14. The program begins at 8 p.m. in the college's Fine Arts Theater. David Rayl, music department chairman, said the Marymount choir will make up the nucleus of the chorus, but additional singers are needed. Persons interested can telephone Rayl at 8252101, ext. 203. Rehearsals will be at 7:30 p.m., Dec. 1, 8 and 10 in the college's Fine Arts re- hearsal room. A dress rehearsal will take place at 2:30 p.m. in the Fine Arts Theater. The choral portion of the concert will feature "The Many Moods of Christmas," a medley of Christmas carols, including "Good Christian Men, Rejoice," "Silent Night," "Patapan" and "0 Come All Ye Faithful." Eric Stein will conduct the Salina Symphony. There is no admission charge for the concert and the public is welcome. Physician is still making house calls at age of 89 FORT MADISON, Iowa (UPI) - Dr. Frank Richmond, 89, has been making house calls for 61 years and says he's too old to start changing his ways. Richmond, who also serves as county coroner in the quiet Mississippi River town, says he has delivered at least 3,500 babies and performed 3,000 major operations, losing only 10 patients in his career. His medical practice is based on common sense and three generations of knowledge culled from his father who was a doctor before him and his son who has followed in his footsteps. "Most of my house calls are to people to keep them from going to hospitals and paying a high fee," said the elderly doctor, whose only signs of age are a slight loss of hearing and a slow but steady walk. "Most of them are Santa Fe (Railroad) retirees who can't get to the office and can't make it to the hospital. Some of these fellas I've known for 50 years and I just like to visit with them." He became county coroner 15 years ago and recently earned the unofficial title of oldest coroner in the state. "Mostly I make out these forms when somebody dies," Richmond said, picking up a death certificate. "But if there's a suspicion of murder or a case that might go to court, I order an autopsy." Richmond's practice has slowed down some since 1953, when his son, Frank Jr., finished medical school and they opened a clinic together. "I quit delivering babies except when he would be out of town on vacation or something like that," he said. "One time when my son was away on vacation, I delivered four women's babies and three of them had twins," he smiled. "After that, I overheard two pregnant women talking in my office. One of them said, 'Don't get the old man. If you do, you'll have twins.'" Richmond, who still takes medical refresher courses, has no intention of slowing down. "I'm real active. I still dive off the high board at the swimming pool and I can still do this," he said, pulling from his wallet a picture of himself doing a head stand. "I go fishing every Thursday and caught a 6% pound bass last summer. "I'm going to practice as long as I can. I'm not happy if I'm not busy." School note David Olson, 2218 Roach, Salina, will show his sculptures in January at the University of Alabama at Huntsville. Olson, who is a graduate art student at Southern Illinois University-Carbondale, uses bronze, steel and wood in his work. Olson, a graduate of Bethany College in Lindsborg, holds a master of arts degree from Eastern Illinois University. A Gift that Helps Year-round! ' fl /7 " U£ t anuom ... anu that iviLL make, aqz. ..
