Don't save toys only for "occasions" like Christmas or birthdays, or as "rewards" for being good. Children need toys as much as they need food and love, according to Growing Child, the monthly child develop- ment newsletter. Timetables don't apply. If you spread toy purchases out, the child will be able to give each new toy undivided attention. Signs a child may be ready for something new to play with are when he masters a new skill, looks for a new challenge, or acquires a new interest. Whether you buy or make toys, these are the main things to look for. A toy should be appropriate for the child's interests and abilities-not so easy as to be boring, not so hard as to be frustrating. A toy must be safe. No small parts to break off, no sharp corners or points, no toxic paint, no potential danger even if it is not played with exactly as the manufacturer intend- ed. A toy should not require a parent's constant supervision. A good toy requires a child's active participation and effort. The child must do something with the toy (and not just press a button) to get real satisfaction from play. The more the toy does (under power of battery or motor) the less there is for the child to do. The guidline here is simple: the child should play, the toy should not. The more different things a child can do with a toy, the more fun he will have and the more he will lean. Before you give a new toy to your childl read the instructions on the package. It is usually best simply to give the child the toy and let him figure out what to do with it. When he has exhausted his possibilities, you might then want to show him Thibodeaux 0|1 Co. &.

If a toy seems too difficult for your child', it would be better to save it until he is older than for you to do too many demonstrations with it.
