Mia recognizes the importance of toys in creating bonds among siblings and parents as well as stimulating creativity in children. Here are her picks:
Zingo: It's Bingo with a twist. If you want to introduce toddlers to the concept of a board game, this is a great choice. It teaches them picture recognition, strengthens their hand-eye coordination, and it also helps them learn the concept of taking turns.
Glitter glue, crayons, black board:
To distract kids from the TV and the tablet, I stock up on art materials. With just a few strokes, the kids are able to let their imaginations fly.
Wooden toys from Melissa and Doug:
My kids can spend hours playing pretend with these cooking sets. They are worth every peso because they are built to last. I do hope they pass them on to their own kids someday.
