A preschool is trialing a no-toys rule for a month, to see what effect it has on the children. Illminster Avenue Nursery School in Knowle West, Bristol, has swapped the plastic toys for cardboard boxes and train tickets.
It says the move is not about depriving the children, but challenging their play and learning experiences. Supporting the children to develop imaginative play.
