Here's what Gummy Lump has to say about what makes a great toy great:
A great toy doesn’t just captivate, it helps to shape lifelong interests, leads to careers, and focuses passions.
A great toy is not instant gratification; it has staying power, helps build attention spans.
A great toy usually comes complete - required add ons are the exception.
A great toy does not glamorize or reflect the destructive aspects of society.
A great toy does not offer answers but stimulates questions and creativity.
A great toy can be played with in many ways--it challenges a child to do, think, and feel.
A great toy looks attractive and is well made.
A great toy is fun for the child- fits the child’s talents, interests, and abilities.
A great toy fits into your price range and is a value for the money.
And, of course, a great toy is safe!
