Their Favourite Toys

The kids love to draw on the drawing board. I think they use it (almost) everyday. This is the second Fisher-Price (FP) drawing board we bought as the first one was spoilt already -- the eraser got a bit stuck. Jie jie loves to draw on it while didi loves to write alphabets and numbers. Sometimes they take turns to give each other questions like maths and fill in the blanks. We've bought a non-branded one before but the FP one is definitely more durable.

Another favourite toy is the alphabets from the alphabets mat. This is one of didi's favourite. He likes to build words with them. If I'm not mistaken, he started having this interest when Word World was first introduced on PHDC. He also likes to use the Jenga blocks (wood block game) to build words. They are just not interested to play Jenga the "right" way.

When he was still a crawling baby, I arranged them at one corner of the house as his play area. I even used the alphabets to decorate the wall during his birthday this year. 1 toy, so many usage. What a fantastic investment. :-)

The push car is also a big favourite. Although they've outgrown it (their legs are too long for the small car), they still like to zoom around the house with it. I redeemed this with Anakku points before didi was born. It was in good condition when jie jie was using it. We kept it in the store room till didi was old enough to ride it. And the "buffalo" broke the steering wheel within days of playing. o.O So it can't control the wheels anymore.

For every toy I see here, I keep nodding in agreement :) Chloe plays and likes the same stuff too, esp the FP doodle board (hers is still the old one) and the push car (her legs are too long too but still wanna sit).

CE is very good in spelling!

Those doodling drawing boards are truly essential in every household with small children. Can't imagine life without them...Such a good habit for your kids to "test" each other Mathematics on the board. Mine, small or big just use it purely for entertainment and not educationaly purposes...hehe.

Mummy didn't curi-curi sit on the push car, meh? hehehe.

My elder boy still has the habit of drawing on his drawing board even at 11 years old.

When one spoils, we buy another one to replace it. It has become his sweet companion:)

Mummy Gwen said...

The drawing board Gwen has is not the branded one. Still ok but I think need to replace already.

The car is too small for the kids already ler. :) Didi spelling skill is very good.

Well kids really do love to play. Sometimes their toys help them in developing some skills. Did's doing a good job with his spelling.
