I almost never write about toys. It's probably as the result of spending far too many hours thinking about how to contain them. Plus, I'm not four and six so, truth be told, I don't find them all that interesting (other than Lego - Lego is amazing). I do appreciate how important toys are though. I've read so many articles on the importance of play and role play and how both aid development. So, yes, before you start worrying that my boys own a mere couple of pieces of Lego between them, they really are the proud (but messy) owners of a fair share of things to play with.
