This is something I have pondered. When I was younger we didn't have a whole lot of money. So, I couldn't have the best toys that were on the market. So, what me and my siblings had was our imagination. We would play games such as simon says or hop skotch or red light, green light just to name a few. Remember these, along with just plain playing with a box and pretending its a house or a race car? I have to ask because I know someone who worked in a school and this person stun me when they said that she suggested to kids one day that they play Simon Says and the kids didn't know what she was talking about. Yet when she taught them the game they loved it and thought it was a whole lot of fun. I know that this is the electronic age, with video games and the Internet but sometimes I wonder if we sacriface something in kids when we don't send them out to play outside. To use their imgination, to play ball, to play jump rope. No now a days we have ad campaigns urging kids to get out and play. Toys are nice but I think that we were given a powerful tool for having fun in our own brains, but I feel like in today's society we could be losing that part of the fun.
