Ways to play
Some kids just don't fit the mould.
Adele Hamilton, Editor Parent24 (Shawn Benjamin)
Two 16-year-olds get nostalgic in the back seat.
'Remember how we used to practise wrestling moves with your Action Man?'
'He was a beast, he had his own jeep!'
These two spent many hours playing on the carpet building elaborate tracks for toy cars, and trying to work out whether Action Man was stronger than a toy plastic rabbit from McDonald's. (The rabbit always won.)
My younger son is not a toy person at all. Give him a board game or a ball, and he's happy, but he never entered that world of the imagination that allows a plastic rabbit to win the wrestling match.
