Toys You Should Never Buy for Children


It is true that toys are for children, but it is also true that not all toys are for children. Today, there are several types of toys, right from rare, to collectibles to some so ultra-rare that people would need to sell their homes to buy the particular toy. Not just the value, but sometimes the design and features of the toys make it a no go for children before a particular age too. Here are some of the toys that you should never buy for children.

Obsolete Models

There are two reasons that you should not buy obsolete models of toys for children. One, they might become rare anytime, and two, they will be made out of older material and ingredients, and therefore will not be able to handle the wear and tear that children will have it undergo. In fact, if you buy obsolete models, you can never be too sure about when they have been damaged while in the packaging itself. If you really cannot do without buying the particular model, make it one for your collection and not for something for the kid to play.

Obsolete models do not a good purchase make, because children have a tremendously famous peer group, and sharing toys is part of their everyday life. Therefore, they routinely come across the newest, latest toys, and if you do buy obsolete models that do not have the same features that the toy the child saw in the kindergarten, you have just bought something that is destined to the lowest rungs of the toy box.

Toys with Too Many Detachable Parts

The thumb rule of a child’s life is that they will tear apart anything that is tearable, and this rule becomes startlingly clear when they get their first toys with accessories. Whether it is a boy or a girl, whether it is an action toy figure with a sword accessory or a doll with a cape as an accessory, if it can come off, it will come off and forgotten and thrown away. The sad part is that even the kids will not know that they have thrown something away until they reach home. If it were their favourite toy, it will never be the same again, and you would end up buying the favourite time repeatedly, just because the kid lost some accessories.

Toys Known to be Harmful

New research is coming up with information about what kind of toy would be best for the kid, and which one they should stay away from. In fact, you will find many articles and information about older toys and even newer ones that have ingredients that are harmful for humans, and definitely not something that a child should handle. Make sure to keep abreast of the latest toy related news, so you can find out which ones to buy and which ones to stay away from.
