His new Playground


We noticed that Ryan wanted to get onto the floor to crawl more often now. In fact, there are many times that he doesn't really want to be carried. He just wants to get down and have that total freedom to crawl and roam to his heart's content. However, we are worry sick each time, we put him on the floor because we are worried that he will just fall flat on his face and break his teeth or hurt himself.

So over the weekend, we have decided to get those colourful floor mats. We wanted him to have his new playground so that he could crawl, sit and fall to his heart's content. We went to Toy`r'us at Subang Parade and got him a total of 16 multicolor pieces which when joined up will give him significant space to perform his `stunts'. My God. They certainly don't come cheap. We have to pay close to RM20 per piece and as with most parents, nothing is to expensive if it is good for their babies. So there we were, spending close to RM400 in just 30 minutes.

When we got home, the moment we have the pieces joined up, Ryan was already kicking, twisting and turning in his mommy's arm, wanting to get down and start playing. He was just smiling and laughing away, crawling from one corner to another once he got down. For us, we are just happy to see him enjoying himself. I just hope that he doesn't get bore with his new playground within a week. Otherwise, it's hard earned money down the drain.......

Good quality baby items always sell at expensive price. It is all worth it when it is useful to our lil one, especially protecting them from bring hurt.

nothing comes cheap. that big plain square ones are better. My daughter used to pick up the letters of the ABC ones and put it in her mouth.

Good decision to have plain ones. Our with ABC in the middle, so many extra pieces to pick up!

Nice!!!
When we needed it, they didn't have plain ones back then.... then for a period of time (when my boys were still in the destructive stage), we had to keep 'fixing' back the letters and numbers. *faint* those were the days.....

Spending quite a lot for your little one. But when saw him happily crawling around, it's worth!

I tell you... when Ryan turns 3 he will want you to carry him again! That's what is happening to some of the kids I knew who are around that age!

He's adorable! I wish to have a little one too this year.

I can't wait to shop for those baby things - maybe I should buy now eh while prices are cheap due to recession;)?

Wow.. I don't recall them being so expensive, but it's worth it. Evan is still playing on his mats.

Great investment...am sure Ryan enjoy it!!

Kristie said...

Hello. Been Busy with work. Thanks for the comments. Ryan is enjoying himself with the playground. We are comtemplating purchasing those with alphabets and numbers at first. On second thought, I am sure Ryan being Ryan will start pulling out each piece an start chewing them. Moreover, more pieces for me and the maid to pick up. So, we decided just to go for the plain ones in one big piece. On the hindsight, I think we made the right decision.
