To some, toys are likely seen products of a materialistic society, a source of fun and distraction for kids but nothing more. Yet, there is a wealth of research that demonstrates the importance of toys in children’s development. Toys are useful for engaging children, stimulating their imagination and facilitating interactions with one another by providing a shared point of interest . Play has also been found to improve confidence and social skills, through allowing children to practice real-life situations and learn how to share or be part of a group. Importantly, toys offer parents and children a different communicative route which can maximize the social, cognitive and language skills that play develops, whilst strengthening family ties. Toys offer a facilitation role in fantasy play, by creating make-believe scenarios children are able to develop their decision-making and creativity skills.
