As an Antique dealer I have always been intrigued by old and well loved children's toy....Especially in this day and age when kids seem to want something to entertain them instead of using their imaginations to create their own magical world....A world filled with dolls.....or Books....
And I think a child who never knows the joy of hugging a Teddy Bear is a child who is missing out on a special part of their childhood....
I remember my children crawling around on the floor pushing toys or making animals growl (I have heard that crawling stimulates the learning centers of the brain), their imaginations hard at work....
A Tin Pail
An adorable little boy doll
And Last but not Least The Clown.....and it is a beanbag! double the fun..... I think if more children had clown beanbags to play with there would be a lot fewer adults afraid of clowns!
I hope you enjoyed our journey down memory lane and I also hope...you take the video games away and give the kids a real toy...one that will challenge their imagination....
