Why is play important? What makes a toy affordable?
Look at the toys you own and are considering. What is the real cost?
Look at the play value. The $45 Elmo doll that talks vs the $119 100pc Magnatiles set? If a child plays with talking Elmo once or twice, the doll is still $22.50 to 45.00. It doesn’t do much, doesn’t teach anything. (Exception is if the child can’t go to sleep without it. Value? Priceless!)
The $119 Magnatiles set? It is open ended play, meaning it is for ages 3+++++. and there is no limit to the variety of play possibilities. It is construction for simple play and for the budding architect, engineer, land developer, (you just never know), Calculate the times it will be used, and the number of years and its quite the value!
Just pennies in fact…
