Last year we published an article on how to show kids what love means, in which we suggested that “it´s not a matter of buying them things but rather giving themselves to others and that empathy is needed to do that.” Why is this important? Because it’s a behavioural model that is key to experiencing social relationships. If you haven´t been able to read it, we suggest you to do now that Valentine´s Day is right around the corner. Plus, by playing with these I Love You Plush toys by Famosa, you´ll be sure they get the message.

At The Toy Blog, we´ve suggested how toy cars can have tremendous benefits for children. To start, they help them learn concepts such as speed, space and distances.

It also teaches them to use their motor skills and coordination as well as learning to differentiate left from right, forwards and backwards. Today, we´d like to tell you all about the new Range Rover by Feber, and how to direct it with the use of a cell phone.

Today, we´d like to suggest you be the child, in the sense of paying attention and discovering the advice kids give adults so they are better parents.
