AboutHansel`n`Gretel is a website focused on bringing you relevant information related to children’s outfits and toys. Choosing the right clothing for your child can be a real nightmare. First of all, we know that children can be very picky when it comes to pretty much everything o you are very likely to go out there and buy a dress she doesn’t like or a pair of pants he doesn’t fancy. Second, we know that it can be a real nightmare dragging you child from store to store and buying him new outfits. Hansel`n`Gretel will make sure the shopping decision is made without you even having to leave the house. As we focus on children’s apparel available in different online stores, some of the clothes you read about here may require you to get out of the house to buy it, but at least you know exactly where to go and what to buy. This means that no more gas money will be wasted, no more of your precious time and especially, no more stress caused by the child crying that he is tired, hungry or want this and that toy. And speaking of toys…
Here at Hansel`n`Gretel, we gave discovered that giving your child a gift is the equivalent of putting a smile upon is face. There is no better way to make a child happy than giving him another toy he could have endless hours of fun with. It does not necessarily have to be his birthday, Christmas, Easter or some other special occasion: you can buy present for your child every time you feel the need (and have the extra-money). While some may define a toy as “any object that can be used for play”, to children toys have a much deeper meaning. If you could now hold in your hands every toy that you use to play with as a child, it would certainly bring back some good old memories.
It has been discovered that toys come back from the old days. Back then, they were simple and they mostly represented infants and animals and, in some cases, soldiers. The origin of the word “toy” has yet to be discovered but it is believed that the first time people used it was somewhere back in the 14th century. These little instruments are really useful to help growing children learn more about the world we live in. And what better way to learn than combining useful information with some fun toys or activities? The truth is that, in our days, there are some special toys dedicated to regular grown-up as they play in order to reinforce their social life and status. Games like Monopoly or Scrabble can be considered a bit too complex for children, who could find it rather difficult to understand what “mortgage” or “bankruptcy” means. Another reason for grown-ups buying toys could be to collect them. This is mostly the case with toy cars, helicopters or other action figures which are part of a set. It’s true, while some collect coins and stamps, others would go for a miniature Ferrari or a limited edition comic book series.
Toys have evolved quite a lot if we take into consideration the fact that centuries ago, people would make toys out of materials found in plain nature, such as rocks or sticks. Wax or clay was also used by some civilizations that made more complex toys: puppets with removable wigs and limbs that actually moved. The yo-yo was quite a popular toy back in Ancient Greece. Greek children (girls mostly) would often sacrifice their toys as a gift for a Gods. This custom was part of a tradition for girls passing into adulthood. Comparing to today’s toys, it is safe to say that technology has evolved and left its fingerprint on toys as well. If older toys were made or clay, sticks and grass, the toys of today are made from cloth, plastic and other synthetic materials. Differences also consist in the process of fabrication. Ancient toys were made by both parents and children alike, but in modern time, we have large companies that manufacture a huge number of toys at once.
Choosing the right toy for your child is a lot more difficult than most of you think. Every child will have a different toy, depending on his personality. Think about the fact that we have gender toys out there. You will most likely never see a boy playing with a Barbie, just as little girls won’t fancy playing with cars, soldiers or helicopters. You can also find toys which actually put your child’s creativity to work. Remember the Rubik cube? That little cube that made you want to destroy it because it was so puzzling you could never match all the colors and round them up on one side? When your child is really creative, what could be better than some putty or a LEGO set? You would be giving them the chance to use their imagination and come up with the craziest (and maybe the most clever) objects yet. For parents that believe that toys are a useless investment that just encourages children to waste time, we would invite you to take further look into the matter.
Think about all the play sets you can find in toy stores: some of the will teach you how to paint; other will give girls ideas on how to bake cookies. There are even toy sets that teach kids how to create new perfumes of jewelry. Even if they won’t have access to diamonds and rare flower scents, they will be able to understand the process and gather important basic information in different domains. Who knows, you may just be helping develop a new authority in the field. Either way, there is no better way to learn than combining work with fun so don’t hesitate to get your son or daughter some toys as soon as you have the change. Good will surely come out of it!11
