Toys do not need much.
Each parent was faced with when his child asked for a new toy, although at home they are so many. Now there is good news – research shows that children are more focused and passionate about the game, when their choices are limited, reports the Chronicle.info with reference to the Channel 24.

How to reduce the number of toys in the house
- Clean space
To give a child a new toy, you first need to get rid of some old that he no longer plays. Or, if the kid is old enough, encourage your child to give their toys to other children who need it more. This is a good way to begin to build caring and empathy for others.
- Don’t keep all, fearing a hysterical child
The child may enjoy some toys, but not play them. But parents are often afraid to throw them away due to the potential tantrums in babies. You need to explain to the children that you have too many toys and they will last a small amount of games.
- Think of other gifts
Ask your relatives who give the toys, instead take your kid to the zoo or the water Park, and the like. Thanks to this, the child will have many happy memories.
