Properly selected, high quality toys and thus rich play have a significant impact on children's perceptual and motor development, expressing emotions and establishing social contacts. Children's toys always determine the content and course of the game, so it's right that they are carefully selected.

Parents and professional workers can help with the selection of a toy developmental psychological assessment. With a developmental psychological assessment, the age or age period for which the toy is most appropriate and the areas of child development that are in play with the toy are most pronounced is determined. For example, toys for movement; creative expression; playing in a fantasy game; assembly and construction; learning about social rules.

It is professionally justified that children of all ages, (babies, toddlers, pre-school and elementary children) have toys from different groups, either boys or girls.
