It is true that no matter how exciting, expensive or innovative a child’s present is they will only play with the box it came in.
But what if the box turns into a book, then a playmate and then the ultimate – a pirate ship!
My son’s godmother always finds the best presents that are fun and educational. I don’t know how she does it but I’m very glad she does!
I love watching my children experience things for the first time but when a gift also lets them play together and revisit the fun it creates over and over again it really is wonderful.
I think children are the best inventors and I hope the toy companies keep watching and listening to what their target audience tells them!
Here’s to all the birthdays to come! Happy birthday C xxx
