Less Toys = Better Play

Moms … have you ever walked through your kids’ playroom or bedrooms and just started throwing away broken toys and accumulated junk? Especially after the holidays, it’s hard to find room for all their stuff. And the truth is, they don’t even play with half of it. Well, you shouldn’t feel bad about getting rid of it — because there is new research that reveals that kids are actually better off with fewer toys.

According to a new study published in the journal Infant Behavior and Development, researchers found that kids in an environment with fewer toys have “higher quality play.” According to the study, when kids have fewer toy options, they spend more time playing with just one toy — which leads to better focus and creativity.
