    What a great article! It’s so important for parents to know that there are toys and games out there for their kids that will stimulate imagination and creativity. It shouldn’t be about what the TV has to offer or the next video game! Thank you!

    It is great to try to promote educational toys, however as this is an article that is attempting to push the importance of education during times of play, I would have thought that proof reading before publication would havce been more stringent. There are many grammatical errors and it does not read well as the sentences are all too long.
    Perhaps this is a reason why a lot of our children are growing up ignorant – they may be given great toys to play with but have to grow up with terrrible role models.

      Samantha, the word count of the article is (drum roll please) 44. Sooooo, how you claim sentences are too long is a mystery.

      The job of children at that age is to learn through play, and the graphic is intended to help parents make good choices. No more than that. Role models didn’t even come into the discussion.
