Good Toys for 6-8 Years
What to look for?
Toys play a crucial role in supporting the development of children aged 6-8. They can help with cognitive, physical, and emotional growth, as well as social skills and imagination. However, with so many toys on the market, it can be difficult for parents to know which ones will be most beneficial for their child.
That’s where the Good Play Guide comes in. Our guide is an invaluable tool for parents looking to find the right toys to support their child’s development at this age.
By using the Good Play Guide, parents and guardians can be sure that they are selecting toys that are age-appropriate and that will help their child reach important milestones.
At the age of 6, reading, writing and spelling games are popular at this age and reiterate their school learning program. Peers are gaining in importance to the child and activities where they can work or play together will strengthen these friendships.
At 7 years old, children are becoming more independent and are starting to explore their own interests. Active play is also becoming increasingly easier, sports and physical tasks allow them to burn off excess energy and explore further afield. Creative play encourages imagination and allows them to express themselves and their emotions whilst having fun.
At 8 years old, children are becoming more confident in their abilities and are starting to form deeper relationships with others. Educational games and toys are particularly interesting as they are keen to seek new adventures and knowledge. Science is interesting and different, offering an exciting and often explosive alternative.
Every toy submitted to the Guide is firstly tested by the important people – children.
While the children play, they are observed by professionals who have been trained to carry out research with children in a robust, and ethically responsible way.
These apps are then put through their paces by our team of experts to ensure they meet our strict criteria in three main areas – Fun, Ease of Use and Skills Developed.
