Touchscreens Over Toys
Touchscreens Over Toys

Could traditional toys soon be a thing of the past? New research finds that kids play with touchscreen devices more than they play with traditional toys.┬áResearchers polled 350 parents about the play habits of their kids age 12 and younger and found that 60 percent claimed their kid used a touchscreen “often” and about 38 percent said they use it “very often.” Touchscreens beat beloved kids toys, such as dolls and action figures, arts and crafts and construction-based toys! Is this a good thing? Who really knows. Only time will tell, but coming from a person who grew up playing with Ninja Turtles, Hot Wheels, and G.I. Joes, I’d hate for kids to miss out on that.
