amid the present economic gloom, we as parents inevitably need to think of ways to save some money on toys. so for a set of $99 playmats, it has to be:
在經濟不景的環境下,為人父母的不得不想想法子省點玩具的開支。$99四塊的地墊可以是:

a tunnel to burn the endless energy of a toddler /
a camping tent for imaginative play
消耗體力的隧道/發白日夢的營地

a shower room to train/prepare your toddler to
use the shower instead of bath
花灑浴室--訓練幼兒由浴盆轉用花灑

a table/counter for role-playing
桌子/櫃台--扮吃飯、扮購買、扮...

and a car/bus too
for some more role-playing with an toddler who loves wheels
一輛汽車/巴士--遇上熱愛駕駛的孩子,又怎能缺少有輪物體?
