Collections have become so much more fun and exciting than my colorful collection. My son has a collection of popular character trading cards which he has slowly been adding to periodically. He decided that rather than keep his collection stored safely in an album or box, he chooses to keep the cards in a small bag in the front pocket of his backpack for impromptu swaps at school.  Inspiring kids to learn through play, here are 5 basic skills learned by collecting and trading collectibles with Basic Fun!

5 Skills Learned by Collecting and Trading Collectibles with Basic Fun!


Seeing my son become quite the little negotiator has become an interesting experience. Finding his own sense of value and worth within his prized possessions, it's quite enjoyable to see what trades he's made, uncover his reasoning for the deal, and of course, seeing what he received from the transaction. We're talking extremely important exchanges, fair and square happening on the playground at recess. While Seemingly just assorted items, our kids are actually developing important, useful life skills such as responsibility, organization, reading, math, and social skills. There's so much more to popular toy collections with Basic Fun!
