Toys For Children That Say, I Love You!
Chocolate is not the only way to express love to a child on Valentines Day. Robin Lehnert, toy expert and owner of Dot's Toys offers tips on selecting "Toys that say I Love You!"
(PRWEB) -- This year, instead of chocolates, why not consider a more lasting way to say I love you on Valentines Day?
Robin Lehnert, owner of Dot's Toys ( www.dotstoys.com )in Mequon, suggests a carefully selected toy might be the ideal way for a gift giver to enhance the relationship with the special child in their life.
Consider these ideas from when choosing a toy that says I love you:
Is it appropriate for the age of the child?
- Is it reminiscent of a toy the gift-giver used and loved? Share an interest or craft with your choice of toy.
- Instead of performing only a single function, does the toy encourage exploration and discovery?
- Is the child able to use the toy in a way to express their feelings?
- Finally, and most important, does the toy bring both the gift-giver and the receiver together?
