Do You Remember KALKITOS?


Back in the 80's, there is one childhood activity that I loved very much. I actually forgot the name but after describing it to hubby, he told me it was Kalkitos. What is Kalkitos? It is a collection of rub-down transfer activity game. Players are given sheets of blank scenery which they can fill up wherever they like with transfer pictures of people, animals, objects, vehicles to create their own unique stories. It is simply a great way to let your imagination runs free!

I have been wondering why it is no longer available for this generation of children. It was such a waste until a month or two ago I saw it at Cziplee Bangsar! Yes! I found my Kalkitos!! BUT... it is expensive. RM22 per pack. So that deterred me from buying and it doesn't look very appealing in terms of the illustration. 

Yesterday I was at the bookshop again and this time, I decided to buy one because deep down in my heart, I really missed it. :) I bought one of the K-Atlas series. Since it has some of the famous landmarks my son loves, why not? educational right? 


After opening it, I was a little disappointed with the content. For RM22, I expected more pictures for transferring. Anyhow, everything now is more expensive. Can't wait to introduce it to Reese. Here is their website http://www.kalkitos.sg/  


Hands feeling itchy! :)
