The holiday season is upon us! Many of us are spending time shuffling through store shelves looking for the perfect gift for the little ones in our lives. Many times, this gift will be some sort of toy…but which one? With literally thousands of toys on the market, how do you choose which one(s) to purchase for that special child. Although I have some training in child development, I still find it difficult to determine which toys are the most developmentally appropriate for a certain age group. Just because the manufacturer has listed the age category on the toy, doesn’t always mean it really is the most ideal item for a child that age.
