Q.

Kids &  Toys

Hello doc,

Should we really buy toys for kids. some say buying lots of toys would spoil them. but some say, buying lots of them will make them feel contended and help them behave well when they see toys in their friends home. which is right? how wud toys really help in their development?

It is always good for a child to have a few toys to play with, with the emphasis on a 'few'.A young child will have more fun with some wooden blocks than anything else. Children also like playing with a cardboard box and it is amazing how a box will stimulate their imagination.Choose appropriate toys for your child.If a child has too many toys they do not know which one to play with first and it seems to unsettle them.
