Toys are items that are useful for play. As with play itself, these are considered an essential element of childhood development that may also benefit adults. Play develops social skills, imagination, creativity, problem solving, critical thinking, situational awareness, strategic thinking, design thinking, personal resilience and physical abilities. Play is recognized as a right in the Convention on the Rights of the Child. It is certainly possible to play without toys but a few foundational toys such as a ball may also be considered a human right. The following are common types of toy.
