Children toys

There was an interesting article in one of the newspaper yesterday... It's about todays' parents habits of buying children toys... It seems that new generation of parents doesn't mind paying through their noses when it comes to children toys and travelling gadgets ie. strollers... And this new buying habit is making the retailers happy as it means more sales & profits to them... Kaching$$$$$$

Well, this new buying trend wont dies off that easily.. why? Coz brand still plays an important factors in making that final purchases... And most parents outthere still think expensive brands mean good qualities... With expensives brands, most parents dont have to think much about products quality... Thus, no need to put on the thinking cap la!!!! Parents need only to choose which toys to buy .... And I think this is true and happening outthere . If not we wont be seeing this new buying trends in Malaysia...

But then again, at the end of the day, will the child be getting the same amount of experience if he/she were to play with cheap toys than expensive toys? For me, there wont be any major differences as toys will be toys in children eyes... The child will still be getting the same good happy feelings regardless of the prices and brands......

How many times has it happen to us when simple things brought so much joys to our children? Those simple things were actually not toys . They were just some cheap laddle , a strainer or an egg whisk or even a shoe box or even a feather duster...

Maybe that is why my mom can give such comments on Arissa's toys ... Just like any other children, Arissa's has too many toys .... Family members and friends has been so wonderfull to Arissa.. The only things that stand out more when one looks at her toys is the brand of the toys... U will see more cheap local brands rather than expensives brands...

Are we stingy when it comes to buying her toys? Well, no. Quality comes first. Price will come second... And when we dont mind putting our thinking caps when it comes to buying her things... So far she is happy playing with all the toys we bought for her... And it feels nice and warm when u see that toys is played over time and again.... No burnt holes in our pockets too...

I 101% agree with you. Quality comes 1st.. since Aidan loves to put everyhing thing in his mouth.. its dangerous for me to buy him toys which is not safe for him. The other day i bought him this car worth less than RM5. He put it in his mouth. I realised then there were parts fell off. Thank god tak masuk mulut lagi.
