"It's magical when you see pretend play moments where children create their own world through play. When I choose toys, I think of the possibilities that each toy has. Toys should be able to be manipulated in many ways and inspire creativity, imagination and curiosity. They should encourage a child to be active rather than passive; to be engaged and involved rather than entertained and overstimulated. With the right environment and materials, children get lost in play that just flows. I find that Rose & Rex has such an incredibly thoughtful selection of toys that possess all of the things that I value in play. I've carefully chosen my favorites based on the things I find most important in play!"
