A most difficult thing: Choosing gifts for kids
The most difficult choice in the world after choosing your baby's name has got to be selecting a toy as a gift for your 7-year old niece. She's just graduated from kindergarten and she is not into the conventional Barbie. She already has the basic set of toys: train set, robot cars, clay and a whole host of board games.
For once, I thought I should do something different instead of buying her a gift. I wish India had something to offer like Singapore's Toy Museum. Called MINT (which stands for Moment of Imagination and Nostalgia with Toys, its a private museum owned by Chang Yang Fa and showcases over 50000 toys. It's been around for almost six years now and has any country/rich businessman copied the idea?
So till at least some Indian businessmen (We can't count on Mr Mallya now, but Mr Birla?) is looking to open something similar, I have no choice but to fly down and show my niece around MINT.
Hope she has a memorable birthday :)
