If your child is 2 1/2, is it OK to buy a toy that is age graded 3+?
The answer is No, No, and NO! The age guidelines are there for a reason. Although your child might be smarter for their age, there are safety reasons(small parts a child could choke on), coordination issues, and a host of other reasons how a toy is age graded. I strongly urge you to follow the minimum ages recommended for a toy. When you selecta toy as holiday gift for your or someone else’s child, rely on the guidelines of professionals.
