While in the toy store I watched owe kids were interacting with one another, and how they handled some of the toys. Having, a niece, nephew, and Godson who are infants it was easier to find toys for the seniority stage. Not all toys on the market are labeled for the right age group. There are some toys for two year old that are way too complex for them to understand.
Because of the complexities they will not know how to use it which can result to them hurting themselves eventually.
This was a very interesting project, I learned a lot about different toys, now knowing about these stages shopping for children in my family will be a lot different. Pigged argued reality involves transformations and states. Transformation is all aspects of change a person can undergo.
States is the condition or appearance which things or people can find between transformations. (Ex: Shape- Humans features change as they grow) If intelligence is to be adaptive there must be functions of reality and transformation. Operative: Active part of intelligence, involves all actions, anticipate transformations of objects or people of interest.
Figurative: Less active, representation used to retain in mind states that intervene between transformations. Pigged also focused on assimilation, and accommodation. Assimilation is the input/ direct information processing, info contradicts the mental map (schema). Accommodation changes the schema to fit the new information also known as the output.
Seniority is the first stage of Piglet’s developmental theory which begins at birth and lasts until 2 years of age. They are able to discern themselves from the environment, understanding environment still exist outside of their reach.
Infants construct knowledge and understanding of the world by experience (vision, and hearing). They interact physically with objects by sucking, grabbing, touching, etc. Since they are able unable to predict reactions they constantly experiment and learn through trial and error. Use of motor activity and reflexes without use of symbols are also learned during this stage. Language development occurs when a child turns 2. Object permanence (7-9 months): demonstrates memory is developing, infants realize objects are there even when it’s out of sight.

Melissa & Doug Pound a Peg Wooden Bench price: $9. 9 Product description Pound the eight colorful wooden pegs into the wooden bench then, flip it over to peat the activity again and again! Four pairs of pegs for color matching and (manufacturer’s review) wooden hammer included . This toy may seem perfect for a 1 or 2 year old, but according to the reviews the pegs are easy to go through the holes. Which means the hammer is pointless because a child can easily force the pegs through the holes by hand. The pegs aren’t soft, so if a child tries to chew or suck on it, chances are they will hurt themselves. The operational stage occurs during toddlers and early childhood (2-7).
At this stage a child learns to use language to able objects by words and pictures. Egocentric thinking- a child believes you see and know what they know. They do not see other people’s side of view. Ex: if I have two sided picture and I ask a child what he sees, he will tell me, NOW if I ask him what I see he is going to expect that I am seeing the same picture as him. They have the ability to classify objects by single features such as shapes with shapes, and color with color. Memory and imagination is developed during this stage. Children engage in make believe understand and express relationship between past and future.

Although a child will be using their imagination it can also affect the way they interact with others. Most kids who have this toy are more likely to get into trouble. When children use their imagination we do not want them to be thinking violently, because as we know most kids will act on it. Concrete operation stage occurs between ages 7-11 . At this age children are able to think logically about objects and events. Increasing their awareness of their surroundings, they also grow out of egocentrics.
