Toys should be con-ect for the child's particular stage of development. They should match his taste of physical 3xA mental growth—not just his calendar age. Toys should challenge—but not frustrate— his growing skills. The pre-school child's toy should be well-constructed, and wooden toys should be close- grained, with rounded comers and sanded surfaces to prevent splinters. All removable parts should be oversized—too large to be swallowed. Malte certain that paint on the toys is nontoxic, safe for the youngster who "tastes" everything. Youngsters give toys a rough worliout, so playtools should be sturdy enough to withstand pre?school energy. Research consultants suggest this list of DONT'S if you're shopping for Christmas toys for preschoolers: DONT run out to the toy stores in search of the "latest gimmicl<s." They usually hold only fleeting interest for the child, and then wind up broken or on his toy shelf—permanently. DON'T buy toys just because they are "perfect minalxires" of the adult world. Remember that young children love to use their imagination v/ith a toy and bring it into their world of make-believe. DON'T buy electrical toys for young preschoolers. He prefers to "make the toy work" by himself—and it's safer, too. DON'T put all your Christmas toys in one stocking! Spread your toy budget throughout the year. Children's interests and skills change and develop quickly, and they love having "Christmas" several times a year. DONT buy toys because they appeal to you. Think of the child's interests and needs first. With the proper selection of the "right toys for every age," parents can help a child become an adult for whom learning will always be fun.
