Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 14, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 20 THE IETHBRIDGE HERALD Tuejtlny, December 14, 1971 Toy sets can stimulate; careful selection is key OTTAWA a'P) Construc- tion sets may stimulate the imagination of children in a wide age range but they should be carefully chosen to suit a child's capabilities, says the Canadian Toy Tost- iiig Council.

The council members say parLs that fit ea.sily together and separate readily to create steady, balanced structures are a must for a properly functioning construction set. "Consider the fitting mecha- nisms of the pieces in the light of the capabilities of the child. Sometimes fittings are loo complicated, or too fiddley, and therefore too exacting for the age of the child intended. "Consider the versatil- ily of the set. The more versa- tile a set is, the greater sti- mulus it will be to the child's imagination and the longer the hours of play." HE.ST FOR YOl'.NT. ONES There are two groups of construction sets. The first in- cludes those with one, or a few, parts of different shapes, all parts having the same basic function. They arc gen- erally more suitable for younger children. The second division includes construction toys that have components of different shapes and often increasing complexity with which the child can build realistic struc- tures as well as designs of his ouii. "Some sets in this division are excellent and have a very wide age span because of the different parts and the fact that gears and motors can be added as the set grows with the child." There are specialized con- struction sets for older chil- dren or teen-agers. Electrical and mechanical models could really be classed as hobby items. The council says clear in- structions are necessary in these sets, the pieces must be of good quality and the end product must be satisfying and function well.
