is important to children. It is the way they practice growing up. Toys
are the tools children use in play. Toys can be purchased, or they may
be as simple as kitchen pan lids or paper sack puppets. Anything
children can play with safely can be a toy. In fact, you may have
watched infants open presents and noticed that they spent more time
playing with the ribbon and wrapping than with the toy inside.
Try to remember two or three of your own favourite toys when you were
still a child.
