Top Toys

A common challenge that comes to those working with children often surrounds equipment. Concerns around types of equipment, accessibility, appropriateness, cost and use of the “stuff” in classrooms is shared across the sector. We came across this article in the high-tech Wired Magazine on the Top Five Toys. The article is a tad tongue-in-cheek, yet has an air of truth which we found refreshing. You may find this provides a fun way to start a conversation on children’s play.

What are your top toys?

  1. I like Wired’s GeekDad columns, good for parents with kids, and for those of us who are still kids. Kid’s movie reviews are quite informative.

  3. We love this article! If you remove the humour, the truth is simply refreshing. It is about keeping it easy and real. Here is a great video about the adventures with a box. Oh the possibilities…
