I have one child who is the sunshine of my life but who also takes up all my time. My love affair with toys started the minute she entered our lives. I am always trying to find ways to entertain her, teach her and engage her. I was amazed that she would not give a second glance to certain toys (which I thought were pretty cool) and spend all her time on a toy that I thought was boring. That’s when I started learning about child milestones, and how different parts of a child develop as a child grows.
I am also an active member of several mom groups and I learn a lot by observing how other children react to toys and seeing what is popular among moms and ultimately, what works. There are some truly well-thought-out, amazing toys around us.
Toys are a great part of being a child but remember, you will build cherished memories when you engage in the play together with your child!
I am an electrical engineer as well as a loving dad to my one-year-old daughter. When I am not working, playing with 3D printing and CAD software, I spend most of my time figuring out what the best toy to buy for my child will be and working on the technical side of thetoytime.com.
