Mutant Busters, much more than action figures
September 23, 2015  |  Written by Carlota Nelson

Action figures are the perfect vehicles with which children can engage in free and non-structured play. The kind of play that has to do with developing their fantasy world and imagination. This type of play makes them become active creators of their own stories instead of passive beings waiting to be entertained. But what exactly do action figures provide and why is it important for them to play with?

Simple Machines for little engineers
September 18, 2015  |  Written by M. Rodrigo Brao

Many parents wish their kids were engineers when they grew up. Just like we suggested in this article, “My children want to become artists. What should I do?”, jobs related with science are better considered than artistic professions because they are usually associated with a “better future.” But for artistic kids, math and physics at school can become a real nightmare. Before this happens, we should teach them how much fun science is at home. Here, at The Toy Blog, we´ve offered some ideas in this respect such as “How to cultivate a scientific mind” or “10 experiments that will make your kids love science“. Today, we´d like to tell you about Simple Machines, an educational app for iPad and iPhone that will get your kids to enjoy discovering the world of physics.

How to teach them what love means
February 13, 2015  |  Written by M. Rodrigo Brao

Valentine´s Day is celebrated on the 14th of February and since it´s right around the corner, it made us wonder if it´s possible to teach our children what love is. Love goes beyond the romantic idea that fairy tales portray and storybooks make us believe. To love is to show our respect, care and understanding of the people who are important to us, whether it´s our partner, family or friends. It´s not a matter of giving or buying material things, but love entails giving ourselves to others. And that implies cultivating empathy. In order for our children to learn to love and build long lasting social relationships, they must first acquire and cultivate an emphatic behaviour. But how to they learn to do this?

Does your child have a complex? Help him overcome it
January 15, 2015  |  Written by M. Rodrigo Brao

Fat, skinny, big nosed, Dumbo ears, short, wears glasses… However you look at it, any physical feature can turn into a complex. Just thinking about what makes him different, derives in low self-esteem and affects his relationship with others.  It´s an irrational thought, difficult to overcome but not impossible. Accepting what we don´t like about ourselves is not easy. As adults, we know and as parents we have the responsibility to teach our children to love and respect themselves more each day. So, how do we do it? Here are some tips on how to help your child thru this difficult yet important transition.
