Our little guy is celebrating his second Christmas, and was absolutely thrilled with the lights and music. Once we turned on the lights he began singing and dancing. He also took a moment to pray next to the Christmas tree, and insisted that we join him. I guess in spite of all the lights and excitement he does have an idea about the meaning of Christmas.
We've been looking for some gifts for him, something to do with airplanes, but without batteries and noisemakers. When I was young I had a (Fisher-Price) toy airplane with a handle on the bottom with a finger crank to make the props spin. It was a lot of fun, and I wish I could give him something like that. There's not much in the way of quality toys in E-mart, though. There is a toy shop next to World Mart in Joyang-Dong with a variety of toys (some cheaper than Emart), but they are mostly for older kids, and there isn't much "educational" toyware.
