You may believe that children do not need electronic items to keep them happy. There is some truth to his, as simple toys are often more popular and useful than those that take batteries in the long run. However, there are some great items out there that can be good for your kids if you use them in moderation and that can also be helpful to you when you need a little bit of help. No parent can be calm and easy going all of the time, and sometimes, it is nice to have a distraction so that you can concentrate on your chores, your other children, your spouse, or the road in front of you as you drive. Hand held games for kids can be great for some children in specific cases.
Parents that do not like video games in the home, or that limit their use severely, may be the last people who would think that hand held games are a great idea. They can choose not to get them, of course, and their children will still be has happy and content as children that have them. However, they can be good for both parent and child. Not all hand held games are just for fun. There are many great systems out there that have educational games that can help children learn as well as have some fun at the same time.
It is great to spend a lot of time with your children. This makes them feel happy and secure. No matter how much you think that spending every second with them is good, it is a two sided coin. For one, you neglect yourself and your marriage when you do this, and your children do not learn to entertain themselves. You can start them with reading on their own, and you can also consider other activities that they can do while you do something else. Hand held games can also be a small part of this time alone for them. The time will fly, they can learn something, and you are going to feel better too.
When going on long car trips, you may find that the hand held games you can get for your kids are lifesavers. Not only are they fun and pass the time in the car, they often come with battery or car power source cord, and they are easy to pack and take just about anywhere. You can find many models of these hand held children’s game consoles that have a headphone jack so that you do not have to hear the games they are playing – just make sure they are not keeping the volume too high so that they are going to do damage to their ears while playing.
If you decide that hand held games may be a good idea, remember that you still have the power to say how much they play and for how long. You can easily take something away if you feel it is getting in the way of family or true learning time. You can choose something for learning only, or you can go with a system that has both learning and playing software so your child has a choice. Look for models made just for children if your kids are under ten years, or one that works for any age if they are a bit older to get the most out of your purchase.
While many educational hand held games for kids could be found among Hasbro Toys and Games, the LeapFrog LeapPad Explorer Learning Tablet and the Fisher-Price iXL 6-in-1 Learning System are great kids’ hand held games, the games in the list of the Kids Toys For Christmas 2011 list

KIDS EDUCATIONAL TOYS.
While it may be really difficult to find a toy that can be educational and really benefit your child, there are a number of very popular kids educational toys that will help any child on various levels and the best part is they are not all expensive.
Every kid gets to either love or hate science. Parents can do a lot in influencing their kids to get to like science with toys that are simply made for just that. There are real special science kits that have been so constructed, as to help educate children in an exciting and fun way. They also have these science kits for very young children.
Physics is a fantastic subject that kids can grow to love because of these science kits. There are general Discovery Science Kits or more specialized Airplane Kits, Motor Mania Kits, so on and so forth. These science kits are of great value because they not only teach kids how things are built, but allows them to have fun at the same time. Busy parents who cannot find the time to get deeply involved with their kids studies will find these kits as an indirect way of getting involved. Most kids take pride in completing the kit all by themselves.
Let us not forget how simple outdoor games like the egg and the spoon race, could teach a child balance and the joy of winning at the same time. Ordinary games like these do go a long way in benefiting a child and teaching it team work. Team work is really important and learning it while they are young will help them when they get older and start to work in the real world.
Music is a favorite among most kids. We know of parents who have been signing with their children down the generations. To-day there are a huge selection of musical educational toys for kids, which can help any child with musical inclinations. The toys start with beginner musical band sets and go on to include individual drum sets, harmonicas, xylophones, guitars, and beginner musical books. Kids can start learning music at a very young age and when they do accomplish this in the privacy of their own homes they grow up to really love music.
Kids’ educational toys, apart form helping them build self esteem; stir the kids’ imagination. This could be the singularly most important reason why children should be encouraged to play with their toys, rather than allowing them to watch TV or play PC Games.
While the TV and the PC can keep a child occupied and give the parents a much needed break, they tend to hurt the child in the long run. The time spent watching television, could have been more excitingly and usefully spent learning how to build something.
BABY EDUCATIONAL TOYS.
Entertaining a baby can be a source of great joy, but keeping the baby entertained can be very challenging at the same time.
Many parents who need to take a break, place their baby in front of the television set not realizing what a very bad habit they are getting their child to cultivate. There are hundreds of awesome educational toys for babies on the market to day, which can help this be avoided. Connect With Toys has links to some very educational for your baby, while apart from being educational are buckets of fun for the baby at the same time.
Ensuring that your baby gets plenty of stimulation is the most important aspect of these educational toys. They help with your babies senses and help develop learning skills at a young age. A cheap, yet favourite toy that most babies love and one that helps with stimulation is a huge jumbo play-mat. There are a large variety of these play-mats that you can pick from, all of which have one thing in common ‘bright colours’
Another very good educational toy for babies, one that is enjoyed by them from a very young age are ride on toys. There are ride on toys that even very small babies can enjoy.
These toys are always very safe for all ages and they do help to keep your baby entertained. However with as a rule it is never a good idea to leave babies and toddlers on a ride-on toy by themselves. Parents or responsible adults should always stay and keep an eye on them. While these toys are absolutely safe, babies could still hurt themselves. Some of these ride-on toys even encourage you to put a helmet on your baby just so they can get use to having one and it helps them learn a good habit at a very young age.
Some babies can be fussy, turning on soft music can really help in such situations, and it will even help them sleep. Soft classical music is not good only for putting your baby to sleep but it can help with a lot of other things also. It is said that a baby who listens to classical music, will turn out to be a real smart kid, because of it.
Child psychologists maintain that many parents feel that a baby must be placed in front of the television to watch the cute lights and hear cartoons, which is very wrong. Babies do not even need that type of stimulus to learn and grow. It is equally cute and fun to watch; babies play with an educational toy, which can really help benefit them in the long run.
Playsets are wonderful toys for kids of all ages. Playset Toys are themed collections of similar toys designed to work together to enact some action or event. The most common toy playsets involve plastic figures, accessories, and possibly buildings or scenery, purchased together in a common box.
Some sets during the ’60s and ’70s were offered within metal “suitcase” containers that also functioned as part of the playset.
Amazon.com has the widest range of playsets imaginable. All one has to do is make a search and they will find something that interests them.
