Frankly, I’m quite sick of playing cars and trains (sorry son, mummy gets tired of your fav games so often hor). I’m a girl, I need my Barbie dolls, masak masak cooking and plastic make up kit complete with the plastic red lipstick.
I mean, what fun is there to rolling the cars/ trains (or anything on wheels for that matter) to and fro across the floor? It’s worse when your car veer off-course and end up in the next room, and you have to go pick it up because your son won’t stop chiming “Mama, 拿”. Eve said she had to play the carpark gantry countless times when Lucas played with his cars and carpark, she got so bored she would read a book in one hand while mechanically operating the gantry up and down in the other.
It’s so mundane.
Well, not if you get the train tracks. The fun quotient is very much boosted, somehow, when your trains and cars go zip around on the tracks. Not forgetting how much it can entertain your son, and the peace you get in the meantime.
Big lesson learnt. Best toy investment to date.
Son, mummy will buy you more tracks, ok?
