The website WhatToDoWithTheKids.com recently asked experts in the toy and game industry for a list of classic toys and games that every child should play with, those things a childhood shouldn't be without.
A few interesting things about the list:
- There was quite a bit of overlap with what the experts suggested and what parents thought were important toys in a survey taken a few years back. Clearly, parents intuitively understand what their kids should play with!
- Not one of the toys or games had a screen attached to it.
- Very few of the toys and games needed batteries.
So here it is -- top 10 games and toys your kids should be playing with:
2. building blocks
6. jump rope
7. Chutes & Ladders
8. assorted balls
9. Chinese Checkers
10. jigsaw puzzles
