Positive toys are handy tools to keep a positive attitude
The easiest way to steer your life in the direction you want, regardless the outside appearances, is to use your thoughts and emotions consciously - this is, to keep focusing on what you do want.
Choosing thoughts that make you feel good becomes much easier when you enlist the help of toys, because they bring fun into the mix.
A positive toy is any tool that helps you to focus your thoughts in a fun way. You are much more likely to effect positive change when you make it fun!
For instance, you can take a drawing mannequin, paint it, put it in a funny posture, and add a little placard with the words 'Lighten Up!'
Here are some fun toys that you can use:
Play around with different ideas to build your own toys. You can find inspiration in places like Pinterest, or you could visit a toy store or a discount shop to find cheap materials with which to build your own toys.
Creating positive toys can also be a very fun activity to do if you have kids. You can create a game with them to come up with as many ideas or actual toys that would make them feel good when they see or play with the toys.
You don't even have to spend money, because you can look for things in your house that you can 'upgrade' to be a positive toy - for example, you can use a permanent marker to draw faces or write short inspiring messages on a bottle of water.
The only limit is your imagination ;)

"I found that when you start thinking and saying what you really want, then your mind automatically shifts and pulls you in that direction. And sometimes it can be that simple, just a little twist in vocabulary that illustrates your attitude and philosophy."
