Having a baby can be a daunting experience. Apart from the realization that you are now in charge of keeping a human alive, you soon come to realize that although they are tiny, they are expensive and they require a lot of things.
In an effort to be thrifty, my husband and I decided to use an old cube shelf he had from when he lived with his parents. His parents still had it in their home and they had no use for it, so they were more than happy to pass it on to us.
As a child, I loved pretend play. I loved imagining myself traveling to fantastical worlds that existed in my imagination or in the books I read and movies I saw. There was nothing more magical than having a large cardboard box and turning it into my retreat, where I could conjure up more fantasies. I decided I would share my love of cardboard houses with my son, but adding my own twist to it of course.
When I had my son, Sebastián, over a-year-and-a-half ago now, like many parents, I decided I wanted him to have toys that would stimulate him intellectually. I wanted toys that were imaginative and ideal for a curious baby. While doing research, I stumbled upon these wonderfully inventive toys known as busy boards.
