Kids naturally get attracted to colourful toys I guess. I'm also at my wit's end when I see older kids use Narad's toys, I usually ask them to stop using, or if there is something that I particularly want to preserve, I try to put it away. The second choice has not worked so well since i then forget all about the said toy and even Narad don't get to play with it at all!
I get annoyed too when I see big lugs of kids and adults sitting on kids swings while mine look woebegone at not getting a turn. But then I think that often kids don't have access to playgrounds, there aren't enough of them...and they grow into adults who just want to recapture that childhood moment they didn't have. :(But yes, I keep away the toys I don't want broken when kids who are known to be rough visit. if my kids are careful, they shouldn't have to suffer others' carelessness!
Oh Boy ! Aren't I glad I didn't give in to the child in me and jump onto the rocking pony when I met him in Chennai. He wouldn't have made it to Bangalore at all.Even worse than adults using the swing is that area being used as a smoking adda in the night and finding cig stubs littered the next evening. That really gets my goat.
shankarii usually allow all to play with stuff... lesson learntstarryIn an open play park yes adults can do but not at the cost of the equipment and definitely not when a kid who is entitled to do it is waiting....oh minka I so agree about the cigg stubs
It annoys me when I see elders sitting on the kids swing too...Arty, did you buy this pony and paint it? or you got it as it is? Also lemme know where u bought it...I need one for my lil pumpkin :)
picture reminds me of my nursery days ...many many thanx
I let the bigger kids sit use Appu's toys much to her ire. Err.. I usually cannot resist the temptation to use a swing whenever I see one though I make sure it can hold my girth well and cause no damage and enver wehn other kids are waiting.
OMG..I sure must be tired! Guess the constant power cuts in Sharjah is affecting me badly....how else can I justify those numerous spelling goof ups in my comment!
The rocking horse is sooo pretty! Adorned by that chain :)
oh you should!! I so agree.. And I hate it when there are kids waiting.. and the adults wont stop playing..
oh.. i'm so sorry.. that looks like an adorable pony!
Got the horse at Parrys in Chennai - available in 4 colours- red, orange, green and blue- then at Rs 350 onlydont know where u get it in Blorethe damage is not visible but we will need to bolster the curve near the legs since it has developed a crack
I've seen rocking horses at these places where they sell woodwork curios. Currently at Forum mall and outside Total mall on Sarjapur rd.And you have been tagged.http://sandhyaryal.blogspot.com/2010/07/facing-my-fears.html
@Art. Surely it can be repaired.. In blore u get in cauvery and chennapatna. Aprrox cost is 450Rs.
thanks sandhya and shruti that is a tag so well done by you i am fearful of taking it up!!shrutiyes my father's next project is to repair it!!
Have no fear and do it. Will love to read it.
Ooh this is a piece of bygone memories for me - there were lots of these around when I was little!
i always check if the swing is strong. and that there are no kids waiting. and that there is no maali who will come blowing his whistle and embarrassing the hell outta me! but i have finally learnt to resist my swinging temptation! but yeah, i am still trying figure out older kids' fascination with baby toys! i had kept Cub's rocking horse in the hall during party and thankfully all kids were below 8! so its still in one piece! :Dcheers!abha
