Children in Cambodia have a different life, than many other children in the world. So you will mostly not see a child with toys like Barbie, Matchbox & Co. And even, when they are not poor, children in Cambodia are not used to have a lot of toys.
Chirlden’s games in Cambodia are easy, playing with fingers and hopscotch for example. And the more easy they are, the more they laugh. And also they repeat without becoming bored.
Even Cambodian children do, what children in the whole world are used to do: Just doing, what their parents do. Like this little boy, who is highly concentrated by using a real hammer.
Meanwhile his father tries to repair a bicycle seat. And behind his back, his son is playing with the hammer. The father trusts, that nothing bad will happen with his son, by playing wich such a toy.
