When Kids Make Their Own Toys


Posted on : 8:42 PM | By : Anonymous | In : ,

I love the Imagine Childhood catalog, I really do. This item made me laugh, however. For $99.99 plus shipping, you can be the proud owner of a replica orange crate scooter. Some people might remember making their own:

It always amuses me when the toys we used to make ourselves turn into an expensive product. And although it is very lovely to have this simple scooter, I think that part of the value is that it was made by hand. You can't really replace the child's experience of building their own toys. It reminds me of this article which I have saved and reread now and then..

My kids love making their own toys. And even though they may not be "perfect" -- jagged cuts with tape all over -- they are always so proud of them.
