With dads being the family provider, it is but natural for them to work hard week after week to earn a living and support their family’s lifestyle. And with the busyness of their work schedules, time spent with their kids is always something they relish and look forward to.
But between mothers and fathers, dads are usually pickier when it comes to activities they choose to engage in with their children. Sports are generally on top of the list among men in bonding with their children. Computer or tablet games are probably a close second, save for the fact that more and more parents are trying to get their children off couch for more active play.
As for toys, Ogalala—a branded system in play by Internationale Globale Marques Inc. and affiliate of Richwell Philippines Group of Companies—shares with The Manila Times what dads will find just as fun as their little ones, on this, their very special day.
Now available locally in leading department and toy stores, Ogalala brings together the best children’s global brands based on parenting and play and learning insights.
Toys that help develop physical, intellectual, social, and emotional skills in an atmosphere of excitement and fun can make daddies and kids’ quality time not just enjoyable but educational too.
Dads and little ones alike will definitely light up with the Artec SC Eco Lantern. Build the eco lantern piece by piece and watch it amazingly charge itself using sunlight. It automatically lights up when placed in a dark area so kids no longer need to be afraid of the dark. An eco-friendly wonder, the Artec SC Eco lantern is also a perfect way to teach kids about energy conservation.
Some competitive action, which fathers always go for, can be had with the Haba Lucky Sock Dip Matching Game. Beat the sock monster and rummage through heaps of colorful socks that look closely alike and pair them in the fastest time possible. Dads will enjoy guiding their kids through the challenge while the game provides excellent visual training for the little ones.
Dads can even take their children’s curiosity to the skies with the Discovery Kids Land & Sky 30x Telescope. Perfect for budding astronauts and astronomers, this genius of a toy is powered by a 30x magnification telescope. It can be used indoors and outdoors, and for exploring the night sky. It also comes with a table-top tripod and moon phase guide.
With such tips in selecting toys that will engage both father and son or daughter (or both), dads are sure to savor the kind of playtime where they can impart knowledge to their children through creative and delightful ways.
