Once upon a time in Lego Land

IMG_1393

 

My 5-year-old and daughter is adept at using all the new age gadgets at home with ease. Well most children these days are smarter, aren’t they? Smarter than the previous generations. And that’s what the evolution theory is about as well

But I have noticed that BOARD games are slowly being minimized to BORED games and Angry birds have already invaded most households, either as iPhone/iPad games or original and duplicate merchandise from school stationery to inner wear.

Incidentally board games were played with neighboring friends in my childhood.  Board games were more of a group activity than a lonesome activity of playing angry birds on an iPhone.  Messy yet fun. But with digital games on a phone or a tablet it’s far easier to clean up.  One  swipe and, Mama I am done!

A lot of games on the modern gadgets are interactive and do develop rational and creative skills, but on the flip side may not induce the added push to develop motor skills. From holding a pack of cards to play Uno, to rolling a dice, to fusing and dismantling the blocks of a Lego game, all boost motor skills. Yes, playgroups and nursery schools do their share to enhance the motor skills.

But the same generation could be very soon having a Tablet as part of their stationary list  the moment they step in 1st grade.  And all this familiarity and comfort with using gadgets is a like a prep course for more techno learning that is getting promoted.

When we got computers in our school, I remember I was in the 5th grade.  And my parents were awed and proud to see me navigate those beefy IBM  & BBC machines with ease.

Gaming on phones and tabs will keep getting better and attracting kids , but yes, monitoring and setting rules of usage of all these gizmos is challenge that all parents need to brace for.

Cannot resist but link one of my older posts on Facebook and Kids, tagged ‘Facebook page of a Toddler’.

No Shave, No Lipstick…the new dating mantra

Not sure how many of you have noticed the ongoing “No Shave, No Lipstick” movement in the media. Well it’s actually a daring ad campaign smartly tagged as ‘Movement’ for the new Gillette shaving blades.

Well,  to decode the ‘Movement’ as stated in the advertorial, it’s all about how women consider men to be undesirable, uncool and as per some extreme comments less trustworthy, if they are with a stubble!

And all this research by AC Nielsen with a record-breaking massive sample set of 150 women in few metros! That’s it..well that’s why it’s called a Sample set.

This is a dreadful statistics for all the Lipstick companies. Behind every unshaven man, there will the one or may be many (could vary in some case I believe) women; who are committed not to use their most preferred  weapon from their vanity box, the Lipstick.

Thank god that I am married by now. So no imminent threat with my weekend stubble.  But yes, for all the bachelor men out there, you better take this seriously.

Looking forward to some FB posts as follows.

Facebook page of a Toddler

I am not an avid Facebook user . Yet whenever I am working on my laptop at home my daughter conveniently places herself next to me, curious to know what I am doing.

With the level of laptop/computer  penetration in most urban households and most parents conveniently browsing Facebook, the Gen Next is already getting social site savvy.  I won’t be surprised that the future classrooms will be social network enabled.

And I couldn’t resist imagining what would be a typical  Facebook page of a toddler look like.

Let me know if you relate to this one.
