This little pig plays music and marches! Would you believe it's only an inch and a half in height? She is a wind-up toy but has so much to offer! She marches and her arm beats to the music.
My mama, daughter and I were fascinated by this pig. We probably tried all 50 other toys and all agreed this was the best creation.
Although these types of toys are not Educational kids toys, they were quite impressive on their own. Now a day it is hard to find action toys that are not battery operated, or have some computer software attached. I bought many toys for Trinity in hopes that it would be a great learning experience for her too, but usually ended up disappointed. On the other hand, there are some that I didn't think much of and they turned out to be one of the most played toys.
As parents we all try to do what's best, but sometimes, I wonder if that's something we ever give ourselves credit for. I mean, it's rare that we actually pat ourselves in the back while not worry about something else. What's more, there are so many other influences that mold and shape them to who they are. Everything that they do have an impact on their lives. The doors they decided to open, or kept closed. The outcomes of acting verses not acting are what either bring them more opportunities, or limited them to just what they have.
I was working like a mad woman when my boys were small. I have lived both world of not being able to stay home and now a stay home mom. There are big differences in the child's life with a stay at home mom. They are exposed to more activities, because someone is there to be the chauffeur. Even though, I feel very good about being home, there are times when this mama displayed personalities and moods that she didn’t know she had.
