11. Based the
information listed above I want you to research (go to the store, talk to
parents, check reviews, etc) and identify a â€œGoodâ€ toy based on Gray and Bettelheimâ€™s
feedback about what play should be. This toy should be for an elementary aged child
and should be for $25 or under. I want you to discuss price (value), get a
picture of this toy, and talk about why you think this toy would be a good toy according to Gray and Bettelheimâ€™s
feedback on the benefits of play. Give me a good argument here and I am
expecting that you will reference Bettelheimâ€™s feedback to support your
suggestion. *Hint, make particular note of what Bettelheim noted about
educational toys and let that influence what toys you pick and which you donâ€™t.
Donâ€™t forget to check the reviews that are available on these toys to see if
they live up to the features promised for the toy you select. I would also be
interested to see if you find one that is popular and highly marketed but is
exactly what Bettelheim cautioned against.

play setting according to the feedback from Gray and Bettelheim and tell me how
