Here is a super delayed post. I think I need to post this first before I blog about Aki’s toompoh obsession.
Presenting… Aki’s Pinoy Toys Collection.
Unlike Benten and Power Ranger toys, these old school toys aren’t easy to find.
I got this from Dapitan Arcade
My mother-in-law bought this clay cooking set from one of the stalls in the sidera during the Tanay town fiesta last year
Manang made this sipa for Aki the night before she went home. This was her last gift to her alaga. We miss her everyday
I asked my officemate Annie to buy this wooden snake for Aki when she went to Baguio
I bought this hay piggie in Lucban during the Pahiyas festival back in ’04.
My in-laws bought this classic paper mache rocking horse from the Antipolo market. We also have a rattan horsie which we got from one of the roadside stores in Pansol, Calamba.
Native balls from AsiaCraft
Wooden Slingshots from my friend Margie and from my sister
Last year, Jollibee dolls were for sale. We bought all 5 charcters! Hetty and Twirlie are still kept inside their bags. We are reserving them for Aki’s future baby sister.
Not in the pictures
– Cebu toy guitar, miniature bahay kubo and Ifugao house that I bought from a trade fair.
– Jyl’s coconut maracas set that I gave her when she was still a toddler.
– A small Guyito stuff toy from my officemate. Thanks Jops!
What I am looking for
– The fluffy puppets from Luneta
– A bigger Guyito stuff toy. Calling Inquirer!
– A miniature vinta boat. Ahem, Chamimay, ahem. 😛
– Nose flute and other indigenous musical instruments
– Pictures of kids playing tradition Pinoy games like tumbang preso, luksong baka and luksong tinik
Anything else that I am missing?
All pictures were taken by Jan of Labski Fotografi who took our family portraits last year. The reason why it took me 6 months to post this is because I was so lazy to resize. Aside from Facebook, are there other sites for resizing photos? Facebook is great but it takes at least 4 clicks to resize and save pictures.
