off the shelf: doc hudson from cars

collections, my favorite things, toys, Disney Cars, toy cars

I absolutely love Cars! Mum + dad has been buying me diecast Cars ever since I was a little tot in hopes of completing each and every character from the film and its sequel. So far, I already have a handful of them, including Lightning McQueen, his mate, Mater, Sarge, Fillmore, Luigi + Guido, Red, Sheriff, Finn McMissile, Holly Shiftwell, + Italian racer Francesco Bernoulli.

For last Christmas, my parents got me another Cars diecast to add to my collection ~ Doc Hudson.

Here’s a short background about Doc Hudson from Wikipedia:

Doc Hudson {voiced by Paul Newman in his last non-documentary film role} is Radiator Springs’ local physician. His license plate read 51HHMD, which is a reference to his year and track number (51), model {Hudson Hornet} and profession {medical doctor}. A racer-turned-mechanic, the character has Newman’s blue eyes.

Did you know that Doc Hudson is based on the real-life Fabulous Hudson Hornet in NASCAR competition? It was introduced in 1951 and manufactured until 1954. (more…)

 

The Benefits Of Music On Child Development

Music has always been incorporated in children education and for all the good reasons. Parents and child expert have deemed music to play an essential role in children’s development. Exposing a child to music early on in life as much as possible is also recommended as music is proven to soothe babies with colic or sleep issues, as well as aid in child early learning and development.

Here are a few reasons why you should expose your children to music:

  1. It helps the baby relax and get better sleep
  2. Nursery rhymes and action songs aid in a child’s coordination and motor skills
  3. It facilitates words and vocabulary learning
  4. It improves a child’s social skills
  5. Tests show that having a child learn to play an instrument will also result to improve performance in Math
  6. Learning to play a music instrument or leaning to sing using a sennheiser md421 will contribute to a child’s feeling of accomplishment and self-worth
  7. It also allows for special bonding time with parents and other family members
  8. Learning new action songs is always a fun idea!
  9. It is an awesome hobby
  10. Learning to play an instrument will also open doors of opportunities for a child later in life

If you do not have thought of any fun ideas for your little one to enjoy this summer, you might as well consider enrolling them to a music class or getting them a musical instrument they can learn to play at home. I am sure they will find it a very interesting thing to do to pass the time.
