DRACULA: ORIGIN - How Many Toys Should Kids Have? Studies Show Surprising Results

As a new mom, you may be tempted to buy your kids anything they want like wooden play kitchens Of course, toys are the kids’ priority when they go with their parents to the mall. However, there really should be a limit as to how many toys your kid has. After all, you won’t want them growing up spoiled and entitled.

So how many toys are already considered too many? Here’s a guide as to how many kids toys your kid should have. 

The German Approach

 According to a 1980 study by Elke Schubert and Rainer Stick, kids shouldn’t have toys at all! Does this mean that we have to deprive them of what they love? Well, the study states that having toys is sort of like an obsession. When a kid has a toy, he or she will most likely want more. It’s actually feeding the trait of consumerism. If parents were to give toys, they’d be creating some sort of demand that needs to be supplied. So what if there is no demand created in the first place?

 The study pointed out that addiction in adults actually has roots traced back to certain hoarding tendencies as kids. Toys can actually be considered an “addiction”. The study group then concluded that toys can be hindrances from learning other important traits and skills like problem-solving, empathy, creativity, and critical thinking. 

The Results

 Because of the studies like the ones mentioned above, a school in Penzeberg decided to test the theory out. This 1992 experiment involved taking away all toys including paper, colored pencils, and crayons. While this did meet with some resistance by the kids at first, the kids then began thinking up different ways to contain their boredom. Some collected branches and other things from outside to create their own toys while others interacted with each other in role play. In any case, creativity and social skills were brought out showcasing that toys may have a limiting effect on the brain capacity of the child.

Should Parents Ban Toys?

 While toys may promote consumerism in children, we don’t have to go as far as banning toys. After all, we still want our kids to enjoy what other kids do. So, the compromise there is to simply cut down the number of toys your kid has. 

As a parent, you can encourage donating toys to other children who don’t have toys. Not only is it a great way to declutter, but it’s also a means to teach your child empathy. We recommend that you follow the 80-20 rule. This means that if your kid has a hundred toys, he or she should only pick 20 to keep. If you want to make things simpler, you can cap the toys at just 20 toys as a whole. 

Conclusion

 The concept of minimalism has already been introduced to adults as a means to appreciate existing belongings moreover to clean up one’s home. The same goes for kids as well. The less they have, the more they can appreciate what they already have. At the same time, they’ll also learn how to think of other ways to play when they get bored with their toys.
