Pocketful of Kids —the very first interactive toy village in the Philippines

October 28th, 2008 by Dianne Peña

Play is very essential for a child’s growth and development. It is not only for the child to enjoy but also it enables them to learn, sharpen their minds and reach another developmental milestone.

Since Christmas is fast approaching, I know how parents and godparents are going crazy shopping for the best possible gifts for their children and godchildren. The problem is, there are a lot of toys but are they suitable, safe and will definitely enhance the child’s development?

Problem no more for there rise the very first toy village in the Philippines.

Pocketful of Kids, the very first interactive toy village in the country. In Pocketful of Kids, the dilemma of “look but don’t touch” is finally over as well as the fear of breaking toys and having to pay a big amount. Parents and children can have an interactive play and have the chance to try out any toy they like, even without buying it, inside this one of a kind play place. I feel it is safe for the children and I love the bright colors of the place (the clerks also have their cute uniforms on which I love…LOL).

Pocketful of kids innovates on the learning process for children ages 0-99(yes, you got it right…) through toys that can stimulate their motor and cognitive skills particularly the 7 smarts which are People, Music, Number, Word, Picture, Body and Nature Smart. Toys are from reputable American and European brands like Learning Resources, Educational Insights (Hot Dots pens, Playfoam and GeoSafari), Alex, Tatiri, Melissa & Doug (Number One in wooden educational toys in the US) They also have gadgets for preschool teachers that will definitely of great help for them.

I surely had a problem with regression when I experienced my visit at Pocketful of Kids (I feel I am not the only one…LOL!). I enjoyed all their toys especially the kitchen play because it has always been my favorite when I was a child. My brother, Jeric and I had almost fought one who will going to use the cash register toy first.

I think I am now fixated with their toys for I really want to visit it again. LOL! I sure had a lot of fun— to be a kid once more. I am always child at heart. Here’s something I made with some of the toys from Pocketful of Kids:

Pocketful of Kids is located at 15/F Strata 2000, Emerald Avenue, Ortigas. They open from 10:00 AM – 7 :00 pm. For more queries you could call them at (02) 634-7888 or (02) 634-2888 or e-mail them at pocketfulofkids@yahoo.com.

But wait there’s more… I have discovered that they have a toy for us student nurses. It is a picture puzzle, which involves the systems of the body. We won’t be having difficulty in memorizing each part for this toy can aid our neurons easily. LOL!

    I remember it well it was December 1991 and I was patiently waiting for Christmas. When it came I got an original Sega Genesis system with a built in headphone jack and it came with this awesome new(at the time) game called Sonic The Hedgehog. It reminded me of 1985 when the classic NES system came with Super Mario Bros. Much like that title it set a new standard for platform video games with it’s fast paced action,catchy yet quirky music and great controls (A,B and C buttons all made Sonic jump the D pad moved him around and that was about it).
    Like Super Mario World, Sonic The Hedgehog was an instant classic but in terms of originality and fun Sonic was even more revolutionary.
    The levels were all colorful and easy such as the beautiful Green Hills and Starlight Zone plus the brilliant Scrap Brain levels, but like another reviewer said the best part of this game were the special stages. If you collected all 6 chaos emeralds you get a different ending with Dr Robotnkik stomping on the words THE END.
    While other Sonic games like the lock on Sonic
