Look at the age limits of any toy you are considering purchasing. These age limits aren't there just for show. Real research has been put into it for your child's safety. Toys marked for use above your child's current age could contain small pieces and sharper edges that can really hurt a young one.

 

Don't be swayed by a toy's popularity. Sure, there may be wisdom in crowds, but it's more important to consider your child's likes and dislikes, along with their age and learning needs. Just because a toy is popular doesn't mean it's a good fit in your home. Think things through first.

 

Consider donating older toys to your local preschool or Kindergarten. Often times, schools are low on supplies. Toys, especially education toys, can be a real boon to their ability to engage and educate kids all across your community. If not to your school, look to other family members to see if there may be needs for toys coming up in the family.

 

To save a lot of money, it's easy to find great toys at a thrift shop at low prices. If you do buy toys at these places, make sure they are thoroughly cleaned before allowing your children to have them. You have no idea what the history of the toys are and you do not want to expose your child to any germs.

 

Kids love toys that can shoot objects in the air, especially young boys. However, you should probably avoid purchasing toys like these. As fun as they may be for your child, they also pose a serious injury threat. Should the object fall back down, your child's eye could become injured.

 

If you have children of different ages in your family, it is important to teach your older children to keep their toys away from the younger children. They should not let their younger siblings play with toys that have small pieces which can easily come off since these can pose a choking risk.

 

Do you have a little Picasso on your hands? One of the best toys to encourage your child's inner artistic abilities is Play-Doh. There are many options when it comes to Play-Doh. One of the latest innovations is the Twist Ice Cream Parlor. With it, your child can make delicious looking creations just like Ben and Jerry's.

 

Be very cautious about buying used toys for very small children. While you may feel like this is a great way to save a few dollars, it can expose your child to hidden bacteria and germs. It is more dangerous for younger children since many of them have the tendency to put things in their mouths.

 

Now that you are more knowledgeable about toys, you're ready to buy them. Buy toys for your kid and for yourself. It honestly doesn't matter who you are buying for. The toy will give lots of entertainment. And, that's the important thing.
