Okay guys, my baby girl is not so a baby anymore. T_T She just turned 1 year old last week and her growth has been amazing. There are quite a number of things that she can do now, she even knows how to say "Daddy" but no "Mommy" yet. T_T Okay, I don't really mind it though because I can use the excuse to get some time out once in a while. *cheeky heh?* :P
Being a mother has been one of my most treasured experiences. I learn a lot of things, on how to be a good parent. Now Marissa is getting bigger, and I am constantly searching for new tools to help with her development . I got her books and toys but I know that I need something interactive. Playing with Play-Doh is definitely one of my favorite childhood memories, and children nowadays are so lucky because Play-Doh now offers a variety of products targeting to specific needs. Even though Marissa is not even 2 years old, I still want to teach her through Play-Doh in her early age, but of course with my presence during playtime.
PLAY-DOH RAINBOW STARTER PACK
Size / Weight / Vol : 448g
RP : RM31.90
As a starter for any toddlers, Play-Doh Rainbow Starter Pack is a great choice for an introduction to your kids. It contains 8 colors and kids use their creativity to mix the colors and get new colors that they want. The 8 colors selection is quite unique as the starter pack includes lemon yellow, egg-yolk yellow, white, fluorescent pink, purple, green, blue and coral/orange-y shade (I am totally using my imagination in naming the colors. :D). There's a mixing chart at the back of the box so you can teach your child how to mix 2 Play-Doh compounds together. This is the way to let the kids be imaginative and create new colors! Playing with Play-Doh is all about creating any kinds of objects that comes to mind so trust me, your kids will create new shapes each time they play. Marissa is still small and she doesn't really understand how this works but I let her touch it to get her familiarize with the texture. The first time she touched it she looked kinda puzzled on how squishy it is. But I need to keep an eye on her because she is still in the phase of putting things into her mouth. Honestly I don't mind exposing her about Play-Doh in her early age because I know she's gonna love it. Anyway, this Rainbow Starter Pack is such a great birthday gift ideas to toddlers. Anyone who loves Play-Doh will love this starter pack.
