⑥Children over 6 years old: Because this age group has entered the school-age stage, and children's autonomy is already strong. In toy selection, you can focus on some creative, novel toys or cute IP. Toys need to emphasize openness: such as electronic building blocks, high-powered telescopes, and deformable robots.
Although the gender differences in toys should not be overemphasized, in actual life, the gender differences between men and women using toys are quite obvious.
Boys: cars, airplanes, robots, engineering, telescopes, guns, and hands-on building blocks;

For example, for a 7 or 8-year-old boy who is usually active, you can choose to assemble a remote-controlled car, so that he can control and run, or you can choose a nerf soft bullet gun to let him experience being a hero shooter feel;
For example, a 7- or 8-year-old boy who is quiet and thinking, you can choose some brain-inspiring puzzle games or hand-assembled building blocks that you can play at home, such as electronic building blocks, Lego building blocks, etc.;
