Disguised Developmental

Modern toys subtly integrate alternative and practical education

Implications - As alternative forms of intelligence become more widely recognized, so too does the desire to develop these frames of thought in children. Thus, a wave of disguised developmental playthings based in niche skills, such as critical thought and creativity, is observed. This signifies a shift in teaching methods, as well as the definition of what it means to be intelligent.
