TOYS

Old toys may last a lifetime (Herald Sun - Dec 27, 2002)

Children can learn more from traditional building blocks and crayons than trendy "brain-building" toys, experts have claimed.

They develop vital life-long skills such as perseverance and patience by playing with traditional toys, with the help of their parents.

This is more important for their development than being left alone with expensive gadgets that are supposed to stimulate their learning.

Child psychologist Dr Peter Stavinoha says that spending large amounts of money on toys with buttons, sounds and flashing lights, bought by many for their children at Christmas, does not substitute for parents playing simple games with youngsters.

"Stimulating your child is a parent's job, not a toy's job," said Dr Stavinoha, assistant professor of psychiatry at University of Texas Southwestern Medical Centre.

Playing with building blocks is good for young children because it can be frustrating. Rebuilding towers that have fallen down teaches youngsters problem-solving, how to deal with failure and persistence.
