Sinterklaas series - done

After seeing these alternative toys on Rafa Kids blog

Amazing art project by pracownia k.: sticks, stones & rope. All a kid really needs!

'The project aims to draw attention to the absurd situation in which we find ourselves on the threshold of the twenty-first century. Bombarded by advertising to buy yet another toy, decorated with slogans promising 'educational', 'creative', 'organic' and recently fashionable 'innovative'. We forget that childrens have the greatest pleasure in playing with simple things, which are part of our adult world and which children are watching with great interest. Have rope, stone and stick a chance to get back in the kids room? Will it only happen when we find it on shelf in a shop? And a sufficiently high price will convince us about their values, attractiveness and influence on the development of creativity in children?'

This makes me feel guilty...


  1. It was the same feeling for me.....Thank you for taking about it.
