Questions:


How do the media attract the children towards toys?


There are many media channels such as TV, newspaper, magazine and social media platform that advertise some toy products to attract the young children. The videos or pictures telecasted or posted on these channels allure them to buy these toys. So, they insist their parents to buy them from the market.


Do you think children learn something from toys?


I think it depends upon what type of toy it is. For example, if a small girl is playing with her Barbie doll by cleaning its hair, washing its clothes and dressing it up with new clothes, it shows that she is learning good habits on how to live a good lifestyle. On the other hand, if she has other kinds of playthings such as guns, knives or pistols and she plays games where it is about killing the other player, in this case, it would not be good as she would be learning to be destructive.


Do the parents spend too much on buying toys for their children?


Yes, sometimes but not always. When the parents feel that their child needs a toy to play, which can help eliminate loneliness in his life, they do let their child purchase a toy even if it is very expensive in order to let him smile. However, when the child is insisting unnecessary and demanding too many toys, they refrain from any further purchase since they know that it would rather make him pampered.


What should be the preferable toys for the children?


Nowadays, toys should include mini-laptop, musical instrument and other such things using which the child can also gain some good knowledge and skill rather than only having fun with no learning activity alongside.
