Doctors Say Toys For Kids Should Go Back To Basics

Holiday toy shopping just got a lot easier. Pediatricians say the best toys for young children in this digital era are simple, old-fashioned toys like blocks and puzzles, rather than costly electronic games and high-tech gadgets.

The report by the American Academy of Pediatrics says simpler hands-on toys that parents and kids can play with together are preferable for healthy development. It cites studies suggesting heavy use of electronic media may
interfere with children’s speech and language development, and lead to obesity. (The Canadian Press)
