I am guilty of buying too many toys for my kids. Then I realize that sometimes they have more fun playing with pieces of paper or even empty boxes !

Totally agreed. My baby gal enjoy tearing paper than playing with those more expensive toys. I think the important thing is that the parent play with them, that is where the funs comes in.

Some of those more expensive toys usually does not promote creativity and spontaneous play.

Agreed too.
Think most importantly is the quality time that we spent with our kids,
but not the quanlity of their toys. :wink:

Basically, our children want love and quality time from us, parents. With love, they tend to listen and more willing to co operate in order to gain favour from us :D

:P yeah, my son gets a lot of fun crushing envelopes. But I think he is actually more interested in mummy's things. He will play with my necklace, my bracelet, my handphone accessories....
