    Superb(psychomotorcognition)!! And what timing..Just yesterday they showed 3 Idiots on TV. Not only does this comic connects well with the movie, but also adds two more to that. Or may be one. The salesman just did his job :) . Cheers, Saad!

    @karthik: No. But I’ve been told once I AM a parent I’d gladly pay multiple K’s to get psychomotorcognitive toys for my kid.

    My Daughter’s toy room is where all “psychomotorcognitive” lose their motor abilites withon 24 hours and suffer from cognitive dissonance and other associated disorders (Keyboard becomes Space ship control, Blocks take macbre shapes, desi atta layers on all shape blocks) in next 24 and and finally descend into psycho toy hell after that.

    You should also do a comic on father convincing child to play games they could not afford in childhood so that they can buy some toys guilt free . ( RC Plane , PSP , PS 3, Full Lego Set )

    Ah! You buy a Rs5000 toy for the kid, but the kid gets maximum pleasure from banging your laptop’s keyboard, plucking the keys out and drooling on the trackpad. The joys…

    Dude….welcome back – u on a roll or what? three cartoons in 2 installments…in a week – making up for lost time?

    btw, i totally agree with this comic – i mean 5000 is not the upper limit – someone tried to pass me off some crap for 20,000 rupees telling me that it was great for my child……..god – where are the days when i played with toys of 5 rupees and 10 rupees………

    mall culture – down with it!

    Karthik Krishnan // July 26th, 2010 at 12:28 pm

    @Ankur Jain Dude 20,000! There is a troll called “TimeLife” the complete book series for Psychomotorcognitive development and it costs just Rs.1.25 Lakhs and sold by direct marketing moms who can beat any tupperware, amway salesaunty with their pinky finger

    You said it so much better, what us parents/people who’ve ever tried shopping for a nice toy for a child, always wanted to say. Thanks for this comic, Saad!

    It is sooo hard to shop for a toy that would really hold the child’s interest and teach the child anything apart from the branded crap like Barbie/Ben10 related propaganda. And not cost a bomb. Here’s what has worked so far my 2 yr old – a slate + slate-pens + a damp cloth wipe, wooden toys from channapatna, bucket + mug + a little water, steel katoris from the kitchen that can be nested, a small nonfunction cooker…

    :) Sorry for the unsolicited advice, but this is a topic close to my heart. Thanks!

    Oh ya as @Karthik Krishnan said, roti ka aata works like a charm too! And its a pity why it hasn’t occurred to the laptop makers to make a child proof design. But then can anything be made totally childproof at all? Going by my experience, I would say no.

    HAHAAHAHAHAHA, good one. When I see the toys used by my niece I think gosh I belonged to paleolithic era!

    mayank sharma // July 26th, 2010 at 3:14 pm

    All these toys etc r a part of the Grand commercialization SCAM. Valentines day, fathers / mothers / sisters / women / pets / neighbours’ / boss’ / aunties’ days etc complete that scam.. or should i say “Archies / Mettel sponsored scam’.

    I mean WTF really… People treat their child like sm object.. givin him/ her toxic mettel toys.. pressurizin in the name of education… bull shit !

    Hahahaha…… the crux of Mall Life…. if only they had the intention to check and compare prices of such shits, outside too…

    But why should they, for them the Shopping doesn’t go anywhere beyond Malls :)

    Hilarious!….which is why I always send salesmen/women scuttling away towards other customers….worse still, I listen to all their crap, then give them seasoned evaluation of their marketing skills, as if I were a marketing whiz, and then go on to add some choice suggestions!
