Dr. Toy: What is P.Q.? (Play Quotient)

Like most parents, you want your children to play with products that provide the best value for your investment. Toys, games, software and tapes can provide children with diverse play and learning experiences. You must select items carefully. I use Play Quotient (PQ) to describe the extent to which your child plays. The more they play the higher the PQ will be. You want to rate the value a toy provides to your child.

You can evaluate a product's effectiveness for your child by asking the right questions.

The right product, for the right reason, at the right price, will help your child to develop a high PQ and provide the best value.

Lets Play!
