Toys are objects that accompany children's growth. They can not only bring fun to children, but also help them grow. Although toys are good for children's growth, it is not the more toys, the better. Too many toys can distract children's attention, so that their happiness is reduced. If children don't have so many toys to choose from, for example, they can only play with wooden blocks for kids or wooden puzzles for babies, they can enjoy the joy of whatever they play.

The Disadvantages of Too Many Toys

Too many toys can lead to a decrease in children's concentration. Psychologists have done an experiment. In the experiment, they randomly divided the children into two groups and asked them to draw. The first group of children can choose one from three brushes, and the second group can choose one from 24 brushes. As a result, the children in the second group painted much worse than the first group. The researchers then asked the children to choose their favorite pen and tried to persuade them to give up the pen and choose another gift. As a result, the children in the second group were more likely to give up their choice of pen.
