Did you know that in 2008 the lowly stick was inducted into the toy hall of fame? Yep, something kids can pick up off the ground when they are outside and use their imagination to turn it into anything.
In 2005 another classic was immortalized in the annals of toy history. The cardboard box. What do these two awesome toys share in common? Well, they are both free, rely on the imagination, and are easy to come across.
Probably the best thing about these toys is that they are hard to outgrow. Even as adults we still play with them from time to time. Who is having more fun in this video, mom or baby? (Hint, it didn’t take long for Mom to find the permanent marker and add wheels and a license plate)
As a parent, it is a great joy to introduce these toys to our children. How do you play with boxes and sticks?
