It has been said that “play is the work of children”. Through play children acquire knowledge and develop skills. They satisfy emotional and social needs. They learn about themselves and their relationship to the immediate environment and to the wider world. Quality play is stimulated and enhanced by quality toys and materials. In an electronics-oriented society, Becky & Me Toys is committed to encouraging play that is real (not virtual), that is active and creative, and that is focused on the concerns, ideas and interests of children.
