    The Greek philosopher Plato wrote that the future architect as a child should play in building houses.

Features

A toy is an object that is used during a game. The toys usually associated with children and pets, but it is not unusual that even adults or animals domesticated not have fun with toys. Many objects are produced specifically for this use, but also objects produced for other purposes can be used as toys. A child can pick up an object and “fly” by pretending that it is an airplane, or an animal can play with a pinecone in campaigning over the paw, morsicandola, rincorrendola or propelling it into the air. Some toys are produced mainly for collectors and not to play it. The origin of the toys goes back to prehistoric times; dolls representing infants, animals and soldiers, as well as replicas of tools used by adults, are easily found in archaeological sites. The origin of the word “toy” is unknown, but is believed to have been used for the first time in the 14th century.

We need to debunk this certainty is impossible, indeed, to find a child who does not try to grasp with my mouth a few object. But not because the latter is not smart, he just lives a growth phase dominated by curiosity and need to explore their surroundings. It is our duty to respect it. So when we are going to choose a toy, the first thing we have to look beyond the material and structure, is the age range for which the game has been released.

Usually on the market we find two main categories of games, those for children 36 months and those for children over three years (these bands then are divided into more categories).
