The world, as seen from the perspective of a child, is a truly a wonderful, magical place full of possibilities. You’d think that’s a bit of a cliche outlook on how kids perceive the world — but it’s also true! At a very impressionable age, these important formative years require tender, loving care and a positive, engaging environment from involved parents in order to grow up to be the best adult possible. Of course, we’re not here to “back seat parent,” if you will, but we will make a valid point that’s hard to disagree with: every growing child needs their fair share of toys to play with!
