Playing at clinic

Many many children grow up without what we would consider "normal" kind of toys.  Here, manipulative toys, learning toys, building blocks are way outside of the norm.  For one thing, they are expensive and the other, parents would rather spend money on new shoes or clothes for their kids then "unnecessary" toys.  To keep children occupied while they are waiting to be seen, I have building blocks, dolls, and other manipulative toys.  What I find fun to watch is when the adults get involved.  They have never had the opportunity to play with toys like this, so often times I will go outside to our waiting area and find parents playing with our toys as much as the children are.
