There's a great tradition of simple toys being used as tools to help children develop their creativity. Without the distraction of simulated noise and flashing lights, children are encouraged to express their ideas and use their imaginations to bring to life their world.
A blanket becomes a hero's cape.
Cardboard boxes become forts and race cars.
Sticks become wands and swords.
"A rock pile ceases to be a rock pile the moment a single man contemplates it,
bearing within him the image of a cathedral."
~Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, Flight to Arras
The toys and loveys here are simple and sweet. They are for fun, for comfort, for friendship and especially for freedom of creative play.
