If a child of 1910 could glance at today’s toys, he or she would likely be confused by the endless games consoles, gadgets and TV-inspired toys. Back in the early twentieth century, the teddy bear was the most popular toy, followed by train sets and construction-themed toys. There was not an electronic device in sight!
However, you can see definite themes running through the popular toys of the past 100 years. For example, although the construction-based toys faded from fashion for a while, in the 1980s Lego became a must-have toy. And the board game shot to the top of wish-lists in the 1930s and 1940s, and experienced another surge in the 1970s – and even today, although replaced in many homes by the computer game, board games are still wheeled out when the family gets together for the festive season!
Despite what many parents may have heard, moving to the southwestern United States or simply hoping the child grows out of the allergy are not the best ways to quell their symptoms. In reality, one of the best solutions to help a child with allergies may be to go against another common myth – that allergy immunization does not work.
The fact is, myths surrounding allergies are rampant, as just as much misinformation ends up reaching the ears of sufferers as quality tips and advice.
With the fall season already in full swing and winter only a few weeks away, many allergy sufferers are ready to put away the medication and begin to breath freely again. While these Americans may be looking forward to a nice respite after one of the longest allergy seasons on record, the winter weather can be just as bad for these individuals. Not because of the climate outside, but due to the lack of protection consumers take inside their homes.
