8:43- TOP TOT TOYS? BLOCKS AND BOXES BACKED OVER HIGH-TECH TOYS 

Skip the costly electronic games and flashy digital gizmos. Pediatricians say the best toys for tots are old-fashioned hands-on playthings that young children can enjoy with parents - things like blocks, puzzles - even throwaway cardboard boxes - that spark imagination and creativity.  "A cardboard box can be used to draw on, or made into a house," said Dr. Alan Mendelsohn, co-author of a new report on selecting toys for young children, up to around age 5.  Many parents feel pressured by ads promoting tablet-based toys and games as educational and brain-stimulating but there's not much science to back up those claims, Mendelsohn said. Their main misconception: "The toy that is best is the one that is the most expensive or has the most bells and whistles or is the most technologically sophisticated."  This is a great talker. Why spend all the money on some high tech toy, when an empty cardboard box will do just fine?  Have we gotten away from allowing our children to dream and innovate through the magic of their imagination? Are we turning our kids into tech wrecks by sticking them in front of a screen?
