RJ is already eight years old but still she loves toys. She was hooked into molding clays when she was 4 to 5 years old, then to Barbie when she was 6 and 7 years old. Now, she loves playing monopoly with her friends.
She is also back to molding clays. She has Play-Doh ice cream maker, then just two weeks ago we bought this Play-Doh burger maker.
Would you believe, the money we used to buy this toy is from RJ’s own savings? She saved P650 ($14) from her baon since June. Hubby just added P150 so RJ can have this. We are so happy and proud that our girl knows the value of money and can already save for something she wants. Yes we can buy this toy for her, but we want her to experience and know the feeling of buying things from her own savings. After buying this toy she told me, “Mommy, ang sarap pala ng feeling (it feels good). I will save again because I want to buy new cellphone. The one with camera.” Waaah!RJ’s favorite gadget aside from her cellphone is our PC. Unlike before wherein she was using it for the games, she now uses it because of You Tube. She is searching for her favorite songs and MTVs on You Tube. I am so amazed how hi-tech children are these days.
