I adore my beloved and beloved child with all my heart. And therefore I try in every way to show him my love. Sometimes these are ordinary sweets (sweets are not translated at all in our house), and sometimes toys. Sometimes, a child will be attracted by a completely unremarkable machine in goods, all at fifty kopecks – I don’t feel sorry.
And so the toys are just getting too much.
I remember my childhood – my brother and I put together had less toys in my whole life than my son has now. As usual, I had dolls and related items (armchairs, sofas, a wardrobe, a carriage with a snow-white horse, and even a special huge machine for dolls — my aunt brought from abroad). A brother sets of soldiers, cars, dragons and other uninteresting stuff to me.
And all our toys with him were in perfect order. Grandmother then allocated us separate cabinets in the old clumsy wall.
My son is not like that. Probably, the abundance of bright and attractive things with time simply becomes boring and loses its original value. So I compare with my childhood – each new toy for me and my brother is the study, adoration and games for many days. At the same time, my child, having received a new fun, forgets about it in half an hour. A rare toy will interest him a little longer.
And I also hurt that he does not appreciate these gifts. If I had such collections of toys in my time, I would probably spend all my free time with them. But no – the son not only instantly loses interest to the new typewriter / soldier / dragon, but also often breaks them.
I remember one time I was very angry at the child and even put in a corner when, just out of curiosity, he broke the thin plastic rails that the chic train on batteries ran. I myself could sit for hours and watch this beauty. I was then lucky to buy this toy at a ridiculous price. And there a massive locomotive with wagons, with sound and light accompaniment, and the rails themselves, from which it was possible to build a road into half of the room.
It’s a shame. But over time, the look inside the toys seems to diminish. Toys do not break at a catastrophic speed. Probably because now all new toys can be specially disassembled. Now we have switched to designers and entertaining entertainments like them.
One problem – to take care of them, he never learned. I, too, like my grandmother and my brother in my time, gave the child a huge pedestal in the closet, where he can now keep his goods. But if I took care of every toy in my childhood and tried to put it in the most favorable light, then my son’s toys were simply thrown into one big pile. For more it is not enough.
I already thought about other storage options – special nets or a children’s tent. And one, and the second we already had, but, unfortunately, did not stay long. Modern materials are so poor quality that you just wonder.
The tent started to go with arrows and eventually turned into a completely worthless rag. And the net came out even worse – cutting the fabric out of it, sharp wire came out right during the game. As I managed to push away my son so that this surprise did not fit him in the eye – I myself am amazed.
In general, I don’t have faith in such storage methods. We have to do with a standard cabinet in the closet. And how do you keep toys for your children?
