Research:

Hi all. Here are some items that we have research:

What is a toy?


A toy is an object that can be used for play. Children and pets are usually associated with toys but it is not unusual for adults and some other animals to play with them many items are designed to serve as toys but goods produced for other purposes can be used. For example, a child can pick an household item and ‘fly’ it like an aeroplane. Some toys are made of collection purposes.


Toys, and play in general, are important when it comes to growing up and learning about the world around us. The young use toys and play to discover their identity, help their bodies grow strong, learn cause and effect, explore relationships, and practice skills they will need as adults. Adults use toys and play to form and strengthen social bonds, teach, remember and reinforce lessons from their youth, discover their identity, exercise their minds and bodies, explore relationships, practice skills, and decorate their living spaces.



Put down your research on the 5-8 years old (the targeted audience) here:


Children at that age like toys with bright colours like red, yellow orange(general colours) for unisex(both sex). Blue, Green and red. Girls like pink, purple and turquoise. Maybe RPG? I love them when I was younger. For maths, we can use simple operations or fractions as they would learn it in P1 and P2. Science simple classification or stages of life?

Toys are objects that can be used for play. They are usually associated with children and pets, or in other words, they are mostly made for children and pets. However, it is not unusual for an adult and some other animals to play with toys. An example of an animal playing with a toy is a dolphin being trained to nudge a ball through a hoop. Many ideas are designed to serve as toys, but goods produced for other purposes can also be used. Examples of toys are remote-controlled flying aeroplanes, soft toys and even water guns.

Process of making a toy(How to make a moving toy):


This is how you make moving toys; It lever is the most important thing as it helps it to make its movement, or in other words, helps it move. If you are able to make it well then making of a moving toy will not be a difficult task for you. Making of the lever of a moving toy is a very intricate process and you can make it by fitting things in such a way that the lever is being pressed when the toy makes its movement.


When you want to make the lever of a moving toy, then you will have to first take some card and cut it nicely in such a way that it forms the shape of the animal you want to make. The shape of the animals and the lever should be made separately and then with the help of paper fasteners, as when every time you want to make something you will need some joints. Then the job will be done. This is just for a simple moving toy.




Thank you.
