From ages 5 to 7, children often create connections between their creative imagination and the world around them. It is at these ages that fantasy becomes an integral part of play.
By ages 8 and 9, children’s expansive development calls for toys that give them mental stimulation.
By ages 10 to 12, children become more open top the idea that structured learning can be fun. Books, complex building toys, science kits, gadgets, and craft kids are some examples of good toy options for children at this age.
