Toy for the Kid in Us

When I was a kid, life was simpler. I enjoyed playing teacher and pretending that my dolls were my students. Nanay would buy me a large box of chalk, a blackboard and a book for recording my students' grades. Sometimes I would also pretend that I am a piano teacher and our household helper would be my student. My other favorite toys were tea sets; jackstones (and chinese jackstone); and board games like Snakes and Ladders, Game of the Millionaires, Scrabble and Game of the Generals.

I am now a big kid and times have changed. We now live in the age of technology where video games are now the toys of choice for both the young and the young at heart.

Nowadays, the xbox 360 is a popular toy for the whole family. Produced by Microsoft, it has an xbox live service that allows players to compete online, voice/video/text and chat with each other and download tv shows. It is more than just a toy- it is an ultimate entertainment system.
