UT study: Too many toys bad for toddlers

NATION-NOW     The scientific reason you shouldn't give your kids so many toys at Christmas     
       Science says Give your kids fewer toys

Kids play longer with each one when they have fewer to choose from "allowing better focus to explore and play more creatively", the United States study said.

The New York Post reports that toddlers engaged in longer periods of play with a single toy, allowing them to play more focused and creatively.

Researchers placed 36 children between the ages of 18 and 30 months in different open play sessions, one with four toys in the room and the other with 16 toys.

After analyzing their subjects' behaviors, officials discovered that toddlers were much more creative when given fewer toys as opposed to several.

Students gather at Oregon State Capitol for 'Defend the Dream' DACA rally
He's just one of the 223,000 DACA recipients living in California, 15,000 of whom call Kern County home. We live in the age of migration: more people are crossing borders than any other time in human history.

The UT study says that keeping toys out of sight of the toddlers keeps them out of mind. Study authors suggest future studies could use repeated exposure to the same toys, home environments and include children with developmental disabilities.

It's that time of year again when many people in our community get into the holiday spirit and begin to collect toys for the children of our community.

This isn't the first time the suggestion has been made. When kids were surrounded by lots of toys, they tended to move more frequently from thing to thing to thing.

"A child will rarely learn to fully appreciate the toy in front of them when there are countless options still remaining on the shelf behind them", Becker wrote. "And resourcefulness is a gift with unlimited potential".
