As Christmas draws near, many readers are buying gifts for their grandchildren, and reflecting on the presents that they were given as a child. They recall the thrill of opening their Christmas presents, but at the same time wonder if today’s children take gifts for granted. When we were given a toy it really meant something to be treasured.
Usually the first toy a child is given is a teddy bear or cuddly doll. When they reached the toddler stage they were usually given a set of wooden building bricks with colourful letters on each face. These were excellent learning tools as parents could sit down with their children and teach them the alphabet and how to spell simple words. Unfortunately today parents don’t appear to have time to play with their off-spring, and it is more likely that they are placed in front of the television to keep them quiet.
