Giving a gift to someone is always a confusing & risky task; it’s hard to understand what the person may or may not like. It can be disappointing if they don’t like the gift. So why not gift something they all like? Here are some reasons why toys make an awesome gift –
1. They’re beautiful
Everybody will agree that toys are beautiful. These cute little toys are the pleasure for eyes and children adore them. Children register and remember the bright colours and they love to play with the toys. Especially the handmade toys have a great artistic value because the makers put their years of experience in them.
2. Emotional attachment
Not just for the playtime, children gradually get connected to the toys and form a bond. Toys are an inseparable part of the childhood and they help create wonderful memories with children for the years to come.
3. They double up as souvenirs / memorabilia
Some toys are so beautifully crafted that even though they’re not useful, it still makes sense gifting them. That’s because they look pretty as an artifact on a side-table, or something to brighten up your coffee table. Traditional toys vary according to the region, so they can be carried back as a souvenir from the trip. E.g. – Kathputli from Rajasthan, Ganjifa from Sawantwadi etc.
4.They bring back memories
All the old toys are hard to forget. We have so many memories attached to them that in one glance we remember so many happy stories, the old days, quarrels with the siblings and friends, the old playtime with parents, and much more. So not just the kids, but handmade toys can be gifted to anyone irrespective of their age.
5. They are educational
The toys help in developing children’s physical and mental skill sets. They learn fine motor skills, mathematical ability, colour and shape recognition, etc. Toys help kids develop their creative side & sharing.
6. Help preserve the tradition
When you are gifting a traditional toy to someone, it is not just an object, but the years of glorious culture, tradition, and the fine art of toy-making. All the traditional toys have some story / moral attached to them and thus, we help it to carry forward when we gift a toy.
