Childhood is never complete without having or seeing a doll. It is one of the childhood friends you rely on when you are going to sleep or when you are playing. Barbie is loved by almost all the girls in the world because she symbolizes timeless beauty. Imagine having Barbie around for centuries now yet girls tend to ask for them until now. Barbie is an iconic character which is made to reflect girls dream appearance and shape. It is also manufactured in different race that also holds elegance like no other dolls. You can still find adults who are still hooked into her and collects every model of her wearing different outfit including that of baby phat coat as a nurse (have you seen one yet?).

If you are living with two rowdy little boys (like my nephews), sleep is one of the things you will sorely miss and might just be one of your biggest problems, too! I don’t know what it is about taking a nap and going to bed early that put them off, I am only sure that whenever those times arrives, my nephews will find clever ways to do many a number of things other than sleep. It seems like a nap or sleeping early at night are two activities they’d rather trade for something else, like sleeping is a sure waste of time. It won’t matter whether their grandmother had the air-conditioning on during the hot summer days or even when their granny get them each an electric mattress pad during the colder months, they would almost always drop sleeping in favor of other activities they deem more worthwhile to do. Boys!
Kids these days are so technologically-advanced that even toddlers as young as 3 years old are showing a particularly keen interest on gadgets and gizmos like mobile phones and digital cameras. They would automatically reach for mom’s iPad, curious and raring to use their new “discovery.” And long before mom is even aware, they would probably start figuring out learning how to use the thing, much like they did with the remote and the television or DVD player’s power buttons. Long after that, they have probably moved on to dad’s laptop or are probably requesting you to buy them a vocopro or a gadget of their own. Blame it on the fast-paced world they were born in and on the ads they get to see regularly on television and everywhere else.
