10 Worst Toys You Should Never Buy For Kids

Children love toys but some people do not think before buying toys for them and buy something for which they regret afterwards. Read on to learn about the 10 worst toys you should never buy for kids.

On every occasion and festival children start dreaming about the toys they might be receiving this time as a gift. It is not that they get toys as presents only from their parents, relatives and their parents’ friends also bring toys.
Some buy thoughtfully and bring age-appropriate toys, while some buy without thinking. There are few things that one should keep in mind before buying toys for kids. However, here are some worst toys that you should never give to children.

Top 10 Worst Toys for Kids

Have a quick look at the top 10 toys which you should never buy for kids.

1. Toys that Make Awful Sound

Many people think that a toy that repeats a specific sentence or makes noise is a good distraction for children. But the fact is, the noise is going to make you mad and after some time the child is also going to hate that toy. For parents, the toy will become an instrument of torture.

2. Toys That Make a Mess

There are toys with glitter component available in the market, which are one of the worst gifts for kids. Even if you throw that toy away, you will find the gleam somewhere or the other especially when you least expect.
Then there are toys that have something like sticky sand, which the manufacturer claims to get into different shapes. In reality, you will find this sticky sand at unexpected places in your house after some time.

3. Toys that Require Involvement of Parents

Toys should be for kids to play on their own. There are toys in the market that need involvement of parents so that the child enjoys it. This is, most often, annoying for parents. Toys that need regular cleaning or constant attention should not be given to kids.

4. Toys Having Their Own Life

Some of the toys would not stop unless it has completed the circle. Some are noisy without any volume control and they cannot be stopped until they complete their phrase and the number of repetitions. These toys turn up to be the most annoying things in house.

5. Toys That are Not Age-Appropriate

Many people buy toys without giving a thought beforehand. If you are buying a gift and you need to ask yourself whether the toy is appropriate for the kid or not, do not buy it. This is because the question has arisen to you simply because there was a doubt. Avoid buying anything that is not appropriate for the child. You must always check the label to find out the age group for which that toy is designed.

6. Tablets and IPhones for Toddlers

When a child is very young, she can hold your smartphone and perhaps handle it for playing games also, but this does not mean that you should buy her a smartphone of her own. Instead you should buy your child toys that promote creative thinking and activities like musical instruments, play houses, stacking toys or building blocks.

7. Toys Providing Uncensored Internet Access

There are some hand-held video games that provide access to internet which can be extremely dangerous for your child, especially if your child is a teenager. No matter whether your child has the capability of going too far using the internet, every family needs to take online safety precautions especially when it is concerned with kids.

8. Violent Movies

Many parents are not aware that some adventurous movies have much more gun violence than before. However, gun violence has increased at a very high rate in other movies also. So, avoid giving such gifts to your kids. Instead, buy your child videos which that promote healthy habits and encourage learning.

9. Violent Toys

Studies have shown that toys that involve shooting make children more aggressive. Even angry faces on the logo or other weapons in the form of toys should not be presented to small children.

10. Toys with Lots of Small Parts

Little girls have dolls with tiny shoes, clothes and other stuff. These are not just dangerous for your child, but can also be vacuumed accidently. They can end up anywhere in your house and if your child is very small, she can even put them in her mouth or even nose. So, when you are buying toys with very small parts, consider the age of the child, her siblings and the state of responsibility of the child as well.
If there is any occasion, you can also talk to your relatives regarding this matter. If not, make sure you get the toy underground before your child sees it. You can also give some suggestions to people offering toys as gifts keeping in mind the above points and the interests of your child. After all it is not good to take away the toys gifted to kids especially when they have just opened them.
