Educating Parents On Educational Toys
from the still-nothing-doing dept
For years, people have been saying that so-called "educational toys" don't actually have any proven educational value, and the latest study doesn't say much new, but does remind everyone that there's no proof that the toys help at all. Of course, that's just enough doubt for parents not to care. Many seem to be buying the products either believing that they must have educational value, or that it's so unknown that it's a "just in case" decision. Of course, don't expect this debate to end anytime soon either. In the past we've even seen some people complain that the real problem was that the toys were too educational and that children of that age shouldn't spend their time "learning," but should just be focused on playing, instead.
