I seldom buy toys for Sarah, because she easily gets bored with toys. Furthermore, she has ‘inherited’ all her second-hand toys from her cousin brother. But Wednesday when I went to shopping at Parkson, I saw this “Baby’s First Block” displayed on the rack, I immediately brought it to the counter and walla, Sarah has her first block!
Once reached home, she was excited with the toy, but not for long…After a minute, she just crawled away and played with her “old” toys. Thinking that she might not understand how to play with this new toy, so, I demonstrated to her the right way.
Guess what she did next… She dropped the blocks into the open bucket, instead of through the shape-sorting lid (patient less). She also found another interesting way to play with the blocks – she put a block and her hand into a water bottle and shakes it. She wanted to make some rattle sound from this action.
Baby blocks are good for eye-hand coordination and other early skills. Although Sarah may not understand her new toy now, but it does encourage her creative thinking as she discovered new ways to play with them.
Therefore, I think I have made a right choice in buying this set of blocks for her.
