How much childlike is the soul of folks involved in toy industry

Working with toys is one of the most exciting  and creative thing.  Behind each design and project it is moving a vibrant mixture of  all the qualities enclosed into a child himself. Infact toys are directed to children and they are created for their evolution and wellbeing, fun and growth. Nowaday the attention towards children’s positive maturation is becoming  bigger and bigger. All parents and educators want to put their best effort to give a life of great quality to their children. What is great quality? The answer is easy. Like the seven basical musical notes do re mi fa sol la si do create wonderful melodies and songs, at the same way these seven qualities create  a wonderful lifepath. 

And to have them expanding from inside out will enable anybody to develop the best stuff for any child. 

  • innocence
  • creativity
  • dharma
  • love
  • collectivity
  • balance
  • joy

Last year i experienced a couple of seminars in toy exhibitions  directed to foster connections between all kinds of folks involved in making toys at different levels, also from different countries. When listening to their speeches i was wondering how truly childlike is their nature.

Momo and the time

More and more clearly, Momo perceived that this mighty sound consisted of innumerable notes whose constant changes of pitch were forever weaving different harmonies. It was music, yet it was also something else. All at once, she recognized it as the faraway music she had sometimes faintly heard while listening to the silence of a starry night.

But now, as the sound became ever clearer and more glorious, she sensed that it was the resonant shaft of light that summoned each bud from the dark depths of the lake and fashioned it into a flower of unique and inimitable beauty.

The longer she listened, the more clearly she could make out individual voices – not human voices, but notes such as might have been given forth by gold and silver and every other precious metal in existence. And then, beyond them, as it were, voices of quite another kind made themselves heard, infinitely remote yet indescribably powerful.

As they gained strenght, Momo began to distinguish words uttered in a language she had never heard before but could nonetheless understand. The sun and moon and planets and stars were telling her their own, true names, and their names signified what they did and how they all combined to make each hour-lily flower and fade in turn.

[Momo, by M. Ende]

The cute aspect of speaking in Chinese

If one day you may decide you want to do something cute for a long term then please take Chinese language classes. This language has strong sweet connotations and they can even be absorbed in the character and attitude! Learning Chinese is good because:

  • It makes you smile
  • It transmits a real sense of purity to yourself
  • It makes you talking with a sort of a new voice
  • It allows you to go back to childish verbalizations but seriously and in the present

A wonderful lyric about the powers of the big mother earth:

dang wo men tang zai da di

xiang tou shen zai shou hu

huo de zi jiao hou chong sheng

qi fa nei zai di guang
