Old Fashioned Toys for Modern Kids

With the rise of electronic gadgets and gizmos, it can sometimes seem like today’s child is plugged in and completely tuned out.

However, there are classic toys that still speak to children across the age spectrum. These are toys that generally fuel creativity and encourage active engagement.

Lincoln Logs

These toys have been around since the early 1900s, and they still hold appeal. They foster creativity as children create buildings and even entire towns.

Tinkertoys

Like its “cousin” Lincoln Logs, this is a toy from K’Nex. These too have been around since the early 1900s and can be used for creating things from simple structures to rather complex machines. They help to develop fine motor skills and encourage problem solving skills.

Sock monkeys

While these little monkeys don’t have overwhelming educational value, they are just fun. Like all stuffed animals, they do encourage the imagination.

Monopoly

This is a classic board game. Skip the electronic versions and go for either the original style or a novelty version. Regardless of the version, this game helps to build mathematical skills and encourages strategizing and problem solving.

Coloring books

Inexpensive and fun, coloring books are one of the earliest forays that many children have into art. These are not limited to ones geared toward young children, however. They run the gamut from very simple ones for toddlers and preschoolers to ones with beautifully intricate images that are more appropriate for teenagers or even adults.
