Kids Room Decor: Before and After

We have recently moved into a new home. A typical Mumbai apartment amidst a concrete jungle.  Besides the living room, the other two rooms are taken over by adults, which means the kiddo has no place to call her own.  As per Mumbai standards, there’s nothing new in that. But my four year old is used to playing on an open terrace of our previous home. So, how do I turn this house into a ‘home’ that’s inviting and engages my kid,  was the question that I had to find an answer for!

This has been long pending thanks to the bout of illness that took over my household last month. Now that all is well, we finally opened the Wonderboxx and voila! I have a happy toddler that can’t take her hands off the various activities included in the box.

So, what is WonderBoxx?  It’s the answer to ‘how to keep your kids busy?’ It’s an age-specific hands-on learning tool-kits for 1 to 8 year olds. You can buy a subscription of Wonderboxx suiting your child’s age and every month you get a box with toys, books and activities based on a particular theme at your doorstep.

Madrat Todzzle: Finally, a puzzle that could keep my toddler hooked!

Madrat Todzzle review
Madrat Todzzle review

Mumma: Hiya, let’s see what is this.
H: Ok. Mamma. Wow… nice!
Mumma: Chalo, make a train out of this. Mumma will watch.
H fiddles with it for 2 mins. Checks out the battery slot (if available), looks out for wires that she can  tug and pull. (If any)
(Leaves it after 2..3.. or max 5 minutes.)
H:
Mumma, you make, Hiya will watch!  (Spralws on the sofa balancing her head on her tiny elbow)
Mumma: Faints

So, that’s a typical scene in our house every time I introduce my girl to a new toy with a hope that it will manage to hold her attention a little more that 4-5 minutes. But, my chatterbox is more interested in playing with people (read , mumma, papa, nani playing her patients and students.) However, the all new Todzzle, by MadRat games could finally do some magic and got H hooked! Yes, she totally loves it.

What is Todzzle?
Todzzle is an interesting magnetic puzzle for kids aged 2-4. Brought to you by MadRat games, this puzzle can be fixed on your fridge/ almirah and while you do your work, your little one puts his brain to the right use solving the puzzle.

We received the Cars and Planes themed Todzzle for review. Though my 2.5 years old is alien to the concept of the review but she knows that anything packed is a ‘gift’ and she loves ‘gift.’ So, while opening it, she was excited and I kept my fingers crossed.
