If you think that smart toys make a child a genius, you are wrong
There is an obsession with parents in general, but also with aunts, uncles and anyone who gives gifts to small children. Not cars, not dolls, but games aimed at increasing intelligence.
The Guardian starts an article with the sentence: parents want games to get their kids to Harvard.
What does science say?
The tendency to prepare the child from a young age, even in games, to become successful when he grows up, can be harmful. Games are games.
The point is to observe the child and advise him as he plays, even with a doll. According to the well-known Montessori method, the child should not perform activities that he does not want. It can even be counterproductive.
So when you buy games, buy the ones they like. Since the holidays are ahead.
