I think I am a toy devotee!
I love to see Yvette playing toy. Even I myself love playing those toys with Yvette. Although I do know child learn thru little things like Lids, boxes, sand, a tub of rice or flour and food colouring, which are all bursting with learning potential through time to play alone and with an interested adult. But still, I couldn’t help to get more and more toys for Yvette. (I wonder are we both deprived from toys when we were a child?)
A child having freedom in a prepared environment will be able to develop physically, mentally, and emotionally to his or her full potential. The child uses this freedom to work with the educational materials (eg. toy) and to socialize with others.
And I constantly create a prepared (new) environment for Yvette and ensure the atmosphere must be pleasant to encourage positive growth and spontaneity. The environment must be cheerful, relaxing and warm, inviting the child to participate so she can fulfil her inner will. (Here)
If you like toy from ELC, I bet you will like their toys. And I think their toys are slightly more expensive than ELC. Most of their toys were from HABA.
After roaming the store for good 30 minutes, I realised there are so many toys I wanted to buy for Yvette. However, I have to pull a brake for now because I have added many new toys into her toy box recently. (Even my niece, Cheryl feels that Yvette has many toys.) –.-!!!
When I was actively “surveying” the toys, Yvette was happily enjoying herself in this store.
Before we left, we found three kitchen sets on the display. They are so cool!
P/S: Thanks Lucas’ mama for telling me this toy store!
