Criteria Used to Evaluate The Toys that start with A
When choosing the toys that are included in this list it’s obvious we started with the name. Though we limited it to the letter A, we didn’t stop there. To further curate the best list possible we considered a couple of additional factors as described below.
Learning Through Play
Children learn by playing. Research shows that the greatest way to teach any child is to encourage them to play. This is true no matter the subject. A great example is to look at what happens when children play with others. The act of taking turns with a toy teaches social skills. It also provides a chance to practice language. No matter the toy this is true and so we chose those that are engaging enough to keep attention while those skills are built.
Some of our favorite toys on this list are the ones that encourage imaginative play. Imagination is a hallmark of childhood and we think it should always be encouraged. The toys that you see above that allow building, role playing, creating, etc. all help children express their imaginations. We suggest allowing play time to bring out your imagination as well.
