A little girl may be fond of her teddy-bear and dolls for a couple of years, only to forsake them in favour of an interest in horses, and playing with model horses and stables. Some children mature mentally quite quickly and become fond of jigsaws, or board games like draughts and chess. Chess is a game where a gifted 9-year old can sometimes beat an adult by their open-minded approach to the game, plus the ability to see several moves ahead in their mind.
One mistake is to buy a toy that is too advanced for a child of a certain age, because it is too technically demanding or difficult to understand. One would not, for example, buy a chemistry set for a three-year old. An equally big mistake though, is to underestimate your child’s abilities, and thereby constrain them. It is by providing children with the means to challenge them that their brains and skills best develop.
Some traditional toys like building bricks and action toys are useful in this way and encourage creative play. Schleich, for example, are a company dedicated to making a wide range of action figures from history, like knights and Wild West Indians, plus many different types of models of animals, both domestic and wild. These figures and models are extremely detailed and realistic, and can light up a child’s imagination.
