Because a box is a box.....it's straight forward, uncomplicated......and a box takes imagination to have fun with, whereas a toy is sort of confined to what it "is".....and it just goes to show that kids have yet to be corrupted by commercialism and materialism....they are still pure of heart and can find amusement in the little things.....once the world gets it's claws in us we quickly become bored with the simple things and need more and more to keep us entertained (for the most part).......
man good question. When my baby was little. like 3-5 he did not care about the toys just the box..he made trains, cars, boats..club house you name it he did it..and in my living room..especially when i had dinner party's...but it was cute..U haul would make millions if they advertised boxes
duh. cardboard boxes were the subject of my playtime. i used to crawl in them and play in them and on them and do everything with a box. boxes to me were like the toys themselves!!!! you can use them for sledding, as a slide, as a car, a mini cave, and the bubble wrap is hilarious!
ha! that's true, often!! kids know how to keep life simple and fun!!! in reading Henry David Thoreau's book "walden", back in high school, when I was 14; I again learned how important it is to keep life simple..."less; is more."...;-)
That's a young kid thing. If you give a 2-yr.-old a new computer with a huge flat screen & awesome speakers, chances are, they're going to prefer climbing into the box rather than reading the diagram to configure that sound system. Well, maybe it's an old-age thing too... I'd choose popping bubble wrap over reading any sort of instructions... :)
