Celebrate fatherhood and all the lovely moments of this journey on International Father’s day with these cool ideas from Simba Toys. Young fathers can celebrate with their dads and kids; spread the love across age groups and generations.
Food Events: Food is a great way to bond. If you’re a foodie and so is your dad and kid, you could attend live cooking events and tastings together. Explore the various food options in the vicinity or across the city as you gorge on the varied cuisines and flavours. Maybe even learn new recipes, cook together and if nothing else – experiment with street food or restaurants at the mall.
Sporty Fun: Playing sports is a great way to de-stress and bond. You could visit your local park, gym, club or just step out in the building to play football, basketball, cricket, tennis, badminton – the options are endless. Engaging in sports is fun and brings zest to your routine as well.
Get Creative: Channel your creative energies to make something you can look back to with fondness. Plant saplings in your garden or in the colony, construct or repair furniture for your home, or create art that will be a great keepsake. This boosts your collective problem-solving skills and also adds warmth to your relationship.
Just be Home: You could always just stay back home and take it easy. Enjoy a movie marathon with your favorite movies, challenge each other at video-games, go through photo albums, or just talk.
Gifts: Gifts are a great way to make your dad or kid feel special and celebrate fatherhood. Some popular ideas include spa vouchers to enjoy rejuvenating treatments, a fitness band, an insurance policy or even market bonds to secure the future. A handwritten card or letter is a sweet and sentimental way to express your love.

Childhood moments are the highlights of one’s life. Capture your child’s growth, milestones and special times in collages, albums and through digital scrapbooking to look back with lots of smiles.

The best moments that makes up the sweetness of childhood.
Treasure Family Bonds
Family gives a child’s roots and help your child look back at the early years with fondness. Capture the highlights of birthdays, the fun of family outings, and the leisure & explores of vacations through notes, diaries and pictures. These are the moments of togetherness that keep the family close knit & bonded for years. Pass these on to your kid when he grows up.
Record Yearly Growth
Make it an annual thing to record your child’s growth. Children are very adaptable and evolving and go through so many changes so quickly. Make notes in a diary about your little ones milestones and achievements. This helps your child reflect on everything learnt. And you get a chance to observe and encourage your kid to do better.
Time Capsule for Keeps
Create a time capsule of sorts in form of videos and audio clips telling your kid about how it is to see him grow up and what’s happening around at that time. Record your child’s changing voice, cute dances, naps, and playtime. Make an email account for your kid and regularly email him sharing your feelings and thoughts. When your child is old enough, share the password and watch them connect to you in a deeper way.

Mishika- Her Mother’s Little Princess
Mishika is an adorable 4 year old girl who loves Frozen Toys and Collectibles! She already has many Frozen Themed products such as playing cards, pencil case, Disney character tent and a lot more. Her parents recently got her the delicate Frozen Porcelain Tea Set. To their surprise, Mishika loved it so much that she immediately started imitating her mother. She handled the cups and saucers with utmost care as she added home-made tea and sugar into it.

Toys create friendship and turn ordinary moments of playtime into special memories. It is during the early years that the foundation of social skills and interpersonal relationships gets built.
Simba Toys encompasses many such games and toys that can be played in groups. These are fun past-times for family, siblings and kids to enjoy together.
Here are some popular games from Simba and their social benefits:
- Sharing, Caring and Empathy
(l-r: Plush toys from Nicotoy, Kids sharing plush toys with each other)
From 24 months onwards, kids begin to understand and express love, trust and affection towards family, siblings and all those they meet. By sharing toys during play they learn to be giving. This helps them make friends, care for their feelings and also reduces their “social anxiety”. They also stop clinging to caregivers as their companions increase. These qualities of caring & sharing help build a fairly friendly child.
- Role-playing & Expressiveness

Role-playing games with dolls helps babies express their emotions about self and loved ones. The child slowly builds his/her social identity and learns more about the various aspects of everyday life. Toys are especially useful for introverted kids to step out of their comfort zone.
3. Healthy Competition, Strategy and Sportsmanship

Playing with others helps a child develop qualities of a sportsman who can handle winning or losing with ease. He/she also learns to strategize, become a leader and also harmoniously play with others. It’s also a great way to release physical and emotional energy in a healthy manner.
4. Siblings & Family Bonding

Play-time gives kids a fun chance to connect with siblings, parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles and all other members of the family. There’s a feeling of one-ness, joy and love that makes the family stronger as a unit.
5. Builds Confidence, Creativity & Compassion

Playing with toys helps artistic kids express themselves with ease and build confidence. Children also learn to be more compassionate towards a new child entering a group. Playing together helps kids come up with more ideas, creative solutions and innovations.
As they say, the more the merrier 🙂
