- Why was it so important to you?

I liked a remote controlled car during my childhood. I have got during my fifth birthday; and receiving that gift, I was completely out of the world. Before that I had not such kind of a toy, but many of neighbour kids had, so I had been crying a lot for that toy to my dad. And he promised me but every time he used to forget. Finally, I was not in mood on my fifth birthday since morning. And he asked about the reason I told that He would again give me a false promise of that car. So he laughed loudly and took me high in his hands and hugged me and then we visited market at once  and he bought me a nice and beautiful red Ferrari. I was extremely pleased and my friends envied me and of my car, as it was a new in that time. so I nursed my pride even. Very innocent moments bonded with that toy, and still have kept in my store room.

Yes, but not in a working condition.

well, these days, they like costly electronic gadgets more, like play station , xbox, mobiles etc.

- How do toys help children to develop physically?
see, it depends on toys, E.g., if a child plays with remote control car, then he has to run behind the car for maintaining the signal, so it gives exercise, same way, a ball of soccer or basketball can bring the same benefit.

No, not at all. now onwards, they have the maturity to play with some complicated gadgets so dont prefer toys.

- What toy would you give to your child?
I would like to give a toy that contains pieces from which one can make circle or triangle or rectangle through different way, this would sharpen his understanding and I would also see the market trend of games even then will come on conclusion.
