The other day while sipping a hot cup of coffee, we had a discussion that almost all the modern parents have at some point of their journey of parenthood .We were lost in nostalgia… remembering the most joyous moments of our childhood!
Our childhood was full of life playing all the wonderful games like lagori, gilli danda, marbles, kitchen sets. Although we had limited exposure to screens of any sort or gadgets we never felt lack of it in our childhood. In fact our life was much better without it.Today’s tech savvy children are glued to the screens all the time. They never seem to have had enough of it. It wont be wrong to say that these kids are on the verge of getting addicted to the gadgets.
We felt it is time now that we spell the magic of our Indian desi toys and games(added s) on our children.The prolonged use of gadgets not only causes health issues but also affects children’s skill development and physical movement. But one doesn’t get to see such toys in good quality sold in cities today.
So we decided to look onto online shopping portals like amazon, firstcry for our favorite toys from childhood like marble solitaire!! And to our surprise it was available. Without making any further delays we ordered Desi toys Marble solitaire.
We went ahead and ordered few of the other toys from ‘Desi Toys’ some of them are
