Toys are a way of introducing our culture to children. Through toys we tell stories about the world we live in. That’s why at Little Citizens we believe in passing on the best parts of our past to the future. Making sure these things get there. Because if it were up to some, we’d only ever be sedentary pods in a land of virtual reality, losing our mobility and with that all sense of hope and meaning. How sad would that be? Remember Captain B. McCrea from the movie Wall-e?
Our kids are like our time capsules. Think of what you cherish from the world and pass it on!
For example physical and optical illusions, any toy that plays with our senses is special to us at Little Citizens. Some of these style of toys were invented a long time ago and we don’t want them to go extinct. Maybe because we can now do things electronically means the analogue version is that much more important. If our kids learn to code and move a character across the screen they first need to learn the basics of movement, cause and effect and simple physical rules.
With toys like the Acrobat Man and rolly polly Acrobat on Bars little ones will use their hands and eyes to test different amount of pressure and the relative cause and effect. Push or press and watch these roll and flip. It still boggles the mind to see these simple action and reactions being caused by our own subtle movements.
SHOP VILAC and pass on what’s great for future generations to treasure.
