undefinedGames and toys provide a way for children to explore different ways of thinking, moving, and intereacting with friends and family members. Unfortunately, it can be difficult to find the perfect item for your child because the manufacturers' recommended ages is often not correct for gifted children.  Additionally, games that look exciting from the box, can be repetitive after one playing. That is why NAGC traditionally runs an annual recommended toy article in Parenting for High Potential.  

Here is the most recent NAGC Toy List.
