We dropped by Hobbes and Landes this afternoon and the kids picked out a 3-D puzzle set of famous architectural structures. They spent several hours finishing each one of the puzzles and really enjoyed themselves.

Ever since our eldest son, Elijah, said he wanted to be an architect we have tried to be intentional about the toys we buy. And so I was really thrilled when I saw this one at Hobbes and Landes. I did not expect the boys to finish putting all of the structures together today, but they did!

At least there are several boxes of these 3-D puzzle sets being sold at Hobbes and Landes. I might have to go back and get another one soon! For a little over P400 pesos I thought it was a good alternative to TV or computer games. 🙂

  1. this is great joy! i saw these toys in buildcity in shang too. i also dont have tv(cable channels) at home so my kids can become more creative. i just buy them video cds of movies we want them to see. there’s too much garbage in tv. kids do not know how to select pa rin kase, and they might just watch what yaya watches. so we had to make that sacrifice. we dont regret it a bit.

  2. Hi Joy! How old is Elijah when he started to be interested in puzzles? My sister was i think about 7 when she finished her first ever puzzle at 700 pcs! And never stopped since. Just a few yrs ago she was the first in Asia to finish the world’s largest puzzle called LIFE at 24,000pcs! Just thought if your kids are so interested in puzzles, they might want to have a field trip and visit my sister to see the puzzle. It could be educational for them and maybe challenge them to aim for bigger structures or more pcs! Im sure my sister won’t mind at all. She lives in binondo so it might also be a cultural trip for you and kids!

    Anyway, here’s a link to see what the puzzle looks like and how my sis did it.

  16. After the repetitiveness of routine sex, Tarun created some unusual affections for sex in his psyche.

    Tarun was getting sexually eager; most definitely.
    Notwithstanding, she strictly avoided any clue of suggestions from others
    and straight rejected by and large any proposal from Tarun of non tried
    and true sexual engagement. Tarun was disappointed with their sexual coexistence on the grounds that his wife indicated at all accessible open doors that she
    was no more intrigued by sex. I indicated her to come closer and whispered in her ears, “Today evening at about 4 pm, I will be here, when Madam will be away. She hosts a kitty gathering and might be away for going to hours. Will you come then?” She took a gander at me, grinned, nodded and returned to work.
    Tina said, “all things considered, you can get back and rests. I might be away for the kitty party, yet will be again at something like 5.30 pm. You can take some torment executioners and slumber until I give back.”
    The servant heard our discussion. We take our work
    seriously. I heard her and Tina discussing little things in regards to work
    or her home hold issues. In bunk, Tina overlooked Tarun’s sexual
    activities.
