Inside Out, a movie to talk to with kids
January 18, 2016  |  Written by Carlota Nelson

One of our favourite movies of 2015 was, without a doubt, Inside Out, from the Pixar and Disney Factory. Although many believe it is a film that speaks more to adults, Inside Out is a fantastic opportunity to talk to our children about emotions. Being able to manage them is what will make them grow up to become happier individuals because learning about emotions, how they work and how to manage them is far more important than learning math and English. Now, thanks to Famosa, you will be able to help them learn by playing with the new collection of stuffed toys, inspired by the characters in the movie.

Different Children. Tolerance and Respect
February 10, 2014  |  Written by Carlota Nelson

Fortunately, we live in a world with a great diversity of races, religions, customs and cultures. At school our children share class, talk, play and interact with foreign children and children of different races. Luckily, they aren´t born with prejudices. They don´t discriminate or care about nationalities, the color of skin or language because a child, no matter where they´re from, speaks the universal language of playing. The bad side is that, over time, kids acquire prejudices by what they observe around them and much like values, these are transmitted from their parents. That´s why it´s so important to help them have an open mind, be tolerant and show them by example.
