Our 5-year-old son, Gabby is like any kid of his age who’s fond of toys! So it isn’t surprising that despite the lack of chimney and a fireplace, Santa Claus still managed to give him an addition to his collection this year. Other than a bar of Toblerone and few pieces of colorful jelly ace found in his socks, Gabby also got 100-piece Jaw Bones wrapped in a box personally chosen from a ton of toys at Toys R Us Santa’s factory by you-know-who. 😀 *wink*
Now, I am jealous of children these days for simple reason of having toys that are so cool and fascinating. I don’t remember playing with these during my wonder years. For kids of the 70s and 80s, can you imagine having PSP or a Gameboy instead of Game and Watch during our growing years? Although I did have my share of lego, G.I. Joe action figures, R.C., some matchbox cars, and few board games before, there were not much of things that would enhance logic and creativity more.
I cannot contest that books, other than clothes are best gifts for children but you know how kids will be kids and they would always want to spend more time on things that are colorful and would tickle their fancy.
Perhaps, Santa found lego and mega blocks more pricey and opted for a different version that wasn’t so cheap either but just as hip and edgy! 😀
Tina and I are glad that Gabby likes his new toy and as expected, he asked me, even his visiting uncle Mac to spend more playing time with him. I am not complaining; in fact, I like it 🙂
With a booklet guide to the patterns and having less help from us, our son tried building these works of art…
A BUGGY & A CHILD…
A DOGGIE & A TRICYCLE….
A DRAG RACER & A BI-PLANE…
There are 6 more structures to create with these awesome Jaw Bones!
😀 What are your favorite toys during your growing up years?
Excuse me as Gabby and I have to continue our bonding time with his new source of fun. 😀
