Classic Toys - Never out of Style

Source:  Dr. Toy

Dr. Toy always talks about the value of Classic Toys. They have lasted over time and continue to prove their value to children’s play experiences. Classic Toys provide durability and fun. They have style and have qualities that make them all time favorites. These toys are often used by adults as well as children as Yo Yo’s, kites, Hula Hoops, Chess and Checkers. You may even find that a train enthusiast began as a boy setting up a layout for his first Lionel train. Or the avid doll collector started learning more about dolls when given a special one from her grandmother. Children are influenced by these early experiences and will grow to enjoy lifetime hobbies if given the opportunity.

Encourage your child to learn more by visiting your public library and seeking resources about toys, trains and dolls. Help them to learn to care for these assets so that they understand they are special and must be treated well.
