My 36-year old eldest daughter has so much interest like books, anime, manga, pinky street dolls, doctor who, cosplay, and anything that will fancy her interest.
Her interest in reading started when she was just a little girl.
I was not a reader but my sister is. I only read those love story books like Mills and Boon and Harlequin Romances for more or less, the ending are almost the same. Rich man marries poor girl. For detective books, my style of reading was to read the last part for I do not like suspense.
This is the reason why I promised myself that if ever I will have children, I will teach them to like reading.
I started buying children’s books and reading to them before going to bed. For educational interest, I bought encyclopedias. I have 4 sets of them, since internet is not yet around in the Philippines in the 80’s. I still have those set in our home but it is gathering dust nowadays.
As she grows older, her interest varies but was more interested now in anything Japanese. She accumulates anime books and comics.
She got interested in Doctor Who even engaged in its cosplay.
Here are some of her collections:
She amassed 80% of Nora Roberts’ books…..
and a lot more books from different authors.
How to draw MANGA BOOKS…..
DOCTOR WHO books, dolls, and magazines.
…. and those Pinky Street Dolls
Her fascination with these dolls has been rubbed on to my granddaughter.
My granddaughter has so many books and toys. She loves to watch cartoons like Peppa Pig, Cookie Swirl C, Num Noms, and so many others. But she got fascinated with these Num Noms toys.
That’s why in 2016 Christmas season, she requested Num Noms toys as gifts. Her every waking hour, her Num Noms Toys were the first thing that she will look for. These are but some of her Num Noms Toys:
