Toy stores are overwhelming.
I took my little sister to Toys R Us to buy her a birthday present.
Thank goodness she knew what she wanted! (Even though the toy looked weird to me at first).
You could get lost in there.
I just wonder if it’s healthy for kids to be bombarded by so many options at such a young age.
Even with parental guidance it’s hard for a kid to navigate the world of entertainment, especially because every company wants kids to grow up with their merchandise.
Brand loyalty doesn’t happen overnight. And that’s why companies target children.
Like anything in life, how strict you are as a parent will always be under scrutiny. I don’t have any children yet, but I watch families closely.
It’s the best way to pick up the dos and don’ts of parenting.
Kudos to all parents though–no matter how strict or lax in other areas–who monitor their kids’ toys.
I learned quite a bit from my trip to the toy store about how hard it is to provide educational and fun toys for kids without sacrificing their little hearts in the process.
