A Listmania! list by Arcturus70 "Arcturus70" (In the Orion Spur of the Milky Way Galaxy)
The list author says: "In a fast-paced, impatient world where automated and animated toys do everything for a child--including some thinking, it is refreshing to see toys that do not contain all technology's "bells and whistles." This is a brief list of our favorite toys that are best powered by the human brain, hand, and imagination. With carefully guided direction sprinkled with loving encouragement, children can learn to create their own stories and adventures with these items thereby developing their minds, critical thinking, personal expression, personalities, speech, and social skills. Children who are accustomed to toys that do everything may not like these toys at first glance. These children will need extra help in exploring an exciting world of fun that is child-centered rather than technology centered. These children may need help in learning how to use their own imaginations. Be patient. Be supportive. Be a willing participant in the process. Use the characters below to make-up and to model stories for your child; be positive and enthusiastic. Inject humor in the situation. Invite your child to pretend along with you--to take the role of a major character. Soon, if you planted the seeds for imagination, the child will want to take the lead in developing the stories. The best way to begin a story is to ask "What if..." Here are some "What If" story starters for use with this listmania:

What if a Princess / Prince had a Unicorn / Flying Horse for a pet...
What if a Princess / Prince met magical people while traveling in the forest...
What if a Princess / Prince had to face a Mean Dragon and find treasure...
What if a two knights were jousting for a King to win a prize...
What if a King had to defend his castle against bad guys...
What if Merlin (or an Enchantress) offered three wishes...
