IrfAn and ThOmAs...

I am not good on buying toys for Irfan... I admit that, last time I just bought anything that may be interesting for him which always end up buying car, lorry, tricycle, ball, books and so on... And to make my job easier, I always asked him to pick any toys that he likes without thinking too much about their pro n cons for my DS. Unfortunately, he will play with them just for a few days only because he easily get bored...He cannot stay still for more than 5 minutes to listen any story book that I read for him even before to bed. I can see that he is not really like his toys and not into his books! He prefers to play cooking and cutting real vegetable by using the real plate, fork and spoon from our kitchen! iya... mama ok for it, as long as he is happy. However, lately mama learnt more things about Irfan, he loves more to something that he can build or anything that he can do by himself! He preferred toys without batteries! One of the toy that he loves most is his Thomas n Friends train set. I bought this T&F train set last December and he keeps playing with them everyday until now! The most interesting part is, he can build the track on his own and I always excited to listen the story "behind the scene" he created while he's playing.. hihihi He also loves T&F TV series since he was 1 year old... He knows almost all the engine characters such as James, Percy, Gordon, Salty, Duncan, Emily, Henry and Thomas itself! Even mama sometimes get confused between James and Thomas because they both are blue but he can recognize which one of them correctly! "WELCOME TO THE ISLAND OF SODOR!" hehehe Hopefully by playing this T&F at least this activity can stimulate his mental capabilities and his creativity... Or as long as he is happy, I am satisfied enuf! Two new things I learnt from Irfan n his Thomas are,1'st, I believed that the happiness in our child soul is the most important because this is the "key" to open up their learning process...Irfan learnt a lot form this Thomas, one of them is he recognise blue, red n yellow colors from it, not from his "My first color book"! 2'nd, books are not guarantee for our child's success in their future, even if he can read at 3 years old! I believed the social skill how to face the real world now days is more important!
Anyhow, I am always proud of you... Mama sayang Irfan eventhough mama knows, Irfan ayaaang omes and mnkeee!!

Hi Taty,

I'm Viviana. Yeah, train set is really fun. Train set amuse my girls too though I first doubt if girls would prefer playing with doll house rather than train set. Children today are spoilt with choices of toys and parents shall guide the child to choose the right toy. I find myself choose the toys for my kids and they really love them when I give the toy as a surprise. In fact, I never buy toy in front of my kids.
I always look for something unique, fun, educational, develops minds and creativity.

Hi Taty,

Sorry forgot to suggest the books. My 2nd daughter is hyper too. she can't sit still.
Choose the book that is hilarious and read with the child. Dr. Seuss dictionary & Dr. Seuss books are fun though the pictures are not brightly coloured but the story is easy to follow and fun.

To start real reading, try Keywords with Ladybirds, the words are big and simple.

Good luck...

Hello! My first time to your blog but nice to know that your son loves Thomas too :)

My son, Lucas, is a No. 1 fan! He also knows the trains' names by heart and loves playing with his die cast trains.

It's nice to see another little boy crazy over Thomas as I haven't found any other online. I'll visit you again...

Btw, I also have a book review blog and have included books on Thomas or trains there. I don't sell the books though!
