“What should I get them???”
As therapists we hear this all the time.
You know what else we hear often?
“My kids don’t really play with toys.”
Here’s our 2 cents on this as professionals who believe in the power of play. We all play. All mammals. No matter how old. We were designed for play. It’s the best form of stress release. It recharges creative pathways. And most importantly, it brings JOY.
Sometimes as parents the hardest part is finding the right toy for the right kid (or adult). But we believe Santa has the perfect one for everyone
So here’s what we’ve done this week.
We’ve made our lists and we’ve checked them twice.
We added toys we have in our homes. Toys we’ve learned about in patient’s homes. Toys recommended by therapists around the globe. And toys that span a large range of interests and prices. Make sure to check back every day for our next list and remember that toys and interest vary by age, so something on another list may really interest a child even if it is not included on the list for your child’s particular age.
5-7 year olds are a fun group. Kids really start to discover interests and love making first real friends on their own so buying for them can be fun and exciting. Here’s our picks for this group this year!
- Stomp Rockets
- Zoom Ball
- Fantasy Fort
- Domino Race Set
- Walkie Talkies
- Etch-Sketch Freestyle
- Rock Em Sock Em Robots
- Root Viewer
- Light Up Bubble Wand
