What does a 6 year old play with: There really are a lot of great toys for 6 year olds. It's an age when a child is developing at a rapid pace, and in many ways goes from being a small child to a big child. It's time to start school and there's less time for play. It is therefore important for the child to have some good toys at home that she can play with alone or with her friends. Read on and get inspired about the best toys for 6 year olds.

Toys 6 years
At the age of 6, role play becomes more advanced and children are more concerned with the rules of their games. Therefore, many children take a greater interest in board games and other toys that require following certain rules. This could also include games where you have to put sentences together and learn new words.
6-year-olds also gradually become better at distinguishing right from wrong, so it's important that children play a lot with other children, which usually comes naturally. In terms of toys, it makes sense to choose toys where several children can join in the play. For example, dolls with accessories.
Also think about having space for playmates in the room. Maybe it's time to sort through the toys and remove those that no longer show interest.
Toys for boys and girls
Children aged 6 start to split up more according to gender. This is why we are starting to talk about boys' toys and girls' toys. Although it is important and natural for children to play with all kinds of toys, there are still toys that are mostly for boys or mostly for girls. Find examples of this further down in the text.
Toys 6 years: concentration and projects
6-year-olds are now good at concentrating for long periods at a time, and often have several major or minor projects under their belts. Again, playing a game together to figure out the rules is an obvious choice. Good toys for a 6 year old could be paints, drawing books etc, which practice the sedentary activity.
Time to start school
Starting school is a big change and children need to make new friends. The 6 year old child is most likely to have started school. Here, the child gets a lot of new impressions and has to concentrate much more on one activity at a time. This is a big change for the children, but fortunately it is something that has to come gradually. At school, children need to learn more about right and wrong, so it's a good idea to practise this with toys at home.

What do 6 year olds play with? Singing, music and dancing!
Singing, dancing and music encourage your child to move, which is of course healthy for the body. Playing music and singing songs is fun for children aged 6 and a great way to play. That's why we've put together a number of options for toys where children can play with music and dance.

Toys for girls 6 years
At the age of 6, girls start to gather in groups. Often, one or two girls dominate and control much of the play, while the other girls take on different roles. It is important for girls to be able to continue to play role-playing games, both on their own and especially in groups. Particularly popular toys for 6 year olds are dolls' houses and dolls, drawing, painting and decorating, building blocks and perhaps knitting or sewing. At this age children really start to find their own place in relation to their friends and the two sexes, so it is a good idea to encourage girls to play a variety of games so that they are free to find their own place.
