In this post, we like to introduce you to toys rotation which will help you to save more time in the long run.

• If your house is loaded with things (toys, books, games, etc) but your children are constantly bored or seem uninterested in playing with what they already have, it’s time.
• If you spend more time putting toys away (than the actual time spent playing with them). It’s time
• If your house looks more like toys r us than a home people live in, it’s time.

In short, the quiet book is just a means for your children to be engaged for a period of time. However, overexposure towards one material will cause a kid to be bored. Rather consider the quiet book as the tool to keep your children engaged when they are out to the restaurant, hospital, to your appointments where minimal noise is preferred.
