The Strong Museum of Play in Rochester, NY has inducted the cardboard box into it's National Toy Hall of Fame. The list of inductees heavily favors creative toys: Legos, marbles, the ball, the Hula Hoop, kites, teddy bears and Play-Doh join the box on this list.
It's a good argument for skipping many of the pricey electronic toys that are on the market today. A bit ironical that the cardboard box can be so instrumental in teaching a child to think outside the box!
Today's post was inspired by Heads Or Tails where today we got to choose a theme from the past. I selected Box, a theme from September 2008. Go check out some other themes. Why not join in the fun.
