This new generation have different requirements, they are from a generation where there are toys for everything. They are also used to television channels which have adverts on (in some cases there seem to be more adverts than programs).These channels are constantly pushing the theme of a toy for everything to our next generation of kids. These are going to be the children of the recession and they are possibly in for a big shock.
The child development experts all say that our children are not doing enough imaginary play. This is essential for development and they will learn about playing together, taking turns at leading play and to use a few simply props to create hours of fun.
