Cost-Effective Toys in a Bad Economy!
Toy Expert Eddi Miglavs says that in a tight economy value is the key when it comes to buying toys. You want to find toys that last and span ages so your child will enjoy it for years to come. Quality is more important than an ultra-low price because with less money to spend you want to be sure you're not wasting it. And you need to follow your child's lead when it comes to choosing a toy that will hold their interest. Best of all are toys that are powered by your child's imagination, toys that encourage hours of creative play.
Some example of toys that hold value are Unit Blocks, Wedgits, Egg Shape Sorter, Wooden Tree House and Chunky Puzzles. Among games are Pocket Farkel (an inexpensive game handy for travel) and Qwirkle (a game involving patterns and sequences that is adaptable for all ages).
