Play IS the work and the language of children. They become what they play so choose wonder, choose fun!

Of course, there is no end to the number of awesome toys out there! We LOVE to play. But play can never be part of FOMO. It cannot be more more more. It is a connection to an object or an activity that fills us with joy, engages heart-soul-body.

Never worry – is it enough? Or, is it right? Children know how to play. They know how to discover what is FUN. And, when they are in doubt, they will create it forthemselves – out of nothing…or out of the boxes and the wrapping.

Play on, friends!
