SFP 03 : How Do You Choose Great Toys?

How do you choose great toys? Toy minimalism

I am a huge advocate for kids having fewer toys--something I call toy minimalism. As we talked about in episode 2,  kids who have fewer toys play better and smarter. The key to having fewer toys is choosing the correct toys. In this episode we will talk about how to choose the best toys for your children.

The Highlights
  • Why does it matter which toys I choose?
  • Examples of great toys.
  • How to display or arrange toys and why it matters.
