A friend of mine on Facebook posted the link to this article and I thought it was worthy enough to post here. I love kids and the things they do. Hanging with them is always so much fun because you get to see them experience things for the first time. And I guess I can vicariously experience them for the first time again as well.
This article just goes to show that it’s not really all about the shiny graphics, or the enhanced dolby 7.1 surround sound. It’s about captivating imagination. So, adult gamers, go out and buy yourself a PS3 or 60 inch screen TV, just make sure you give your kids the box to play with while you break in your new gadget.
Here’s an excerpt:
It looked like a frenetic moving day at the Children’s Discovery Museum.
Empty cardboard boxes littered a corner of the first floor exhibit space, piled up or strewed around as if someone had just finished unpacking them.
But what looked like the discarded packaging for a new exhibit was actually the exhibit itself.
It’s called Box City, and its accidental success proves that when it comes to toys, one kid’s trash is another kid’s castle. Or doll crib. Or submarine.
