A friend of ours gave us some wonderful gifts on our recent trip to Mexico. She is a kindergarten teacher there, and is also aware of my 'peculiar' toy requirements. ha ha. This was one of the puzzles, which I thought was just adorable and also reflects a bit of the local culture, since 'el gallo' is very prominent in stories and tales from Mexico, as well as just ubiquitous in the countryside and lives of the people there. I thought to post this since many people go to Mexico for vacations, but not many are aware of some of the wonderful artesenal toys that are still handmade there. So next time you are in Mexico, you will have something new to be on the lookout for. ;) If I find some of the other ones that we have, I will try to post them. They range from wooden tops, puzzles, and the like.
Una amiga nos regalo este maravilloso rompecabezas en nuestra ultima viaje a Mexico. Ella es maestra del jardin infantil, y sabe de mis 'peculiares' requisitos para los juguetes. ja ja ja. Pense que este en particular refleje bien la cultura de Mexico, ya que el gallo esta presente en mucho de los cuentos infantiles, ademas, es en todas partes, especialmente en el campo. Pense poner este post porque se que mucha gente va siempre a Mexico para las vacaciiones, pero quien penso que era un buen lugar encontrar juguetes artesanales y de madera? :-)
