How much of our childhood do we carry into adulthood? 

The ages 6 years old and below is an extraordinary period in human life. This is when important steps in the formation of a child’s brain happens. A child’s experiences during this part of life have a big impact on how they will become as adults. During this time, children learn important lessons on how to deal with other people, living things, objects, and the environment. “Playtales: a Journey from Me to We” is an interactive exhibition that showcases and enhances these connections in a child’s mind.

Once Upon a Time

“Playtales” is on the second floor of The Mind Museum in Bonifacio Global City. Through play, story-telling, and other creative experiences, young children and their adult companions can learn important lessons about the wonders of early childhood.

Designed with the help of the latest research about development during early childhood years, the exhibits are best enjoyed by children 2 to 6 years old accompanied by adults who can help them interact with the exhibits.

“Playtales” is not only for young children — it is for their grown up companions too! By helping young children interact with the exhibits, the grown ups learn about the importance of early childhood experiences by watching children showcase their creativity, playfulness, curiosity, and empathy.

Wear and Where

“People always debate which is more powerful — nature or nurture – but it is both. Always both as it is always an interplay between your genes and what and who surrounds you. So in ‘Playtales,’ we focused on this interplay crafting creative experiences to shape children’s responses to different stories and different situations to make them aware that they live in a world with others,” says Maria Isabel Garcia, curator of The Mind Museum.

“The years 0-5 is the age of the great wiring of the brain. Research has found that many attitudes and behavior become deeply embedded by the time we are 5 years old,” Garcia says. “We want to be able to help create experiences that strengthen this wiring for empathy. We still live in a world where many of the biggest problems arise from lack of empathy and from failure to relate with others.”

“Playtales” is organized into three “worlds”. Exhibits in the “World of Humans” show how young children develop empathy — the ability to imagine how others feel — in their dealings with other people. In the “World of Others”, guests will learn about how young children develop connections with objects, other living things, and the environment. The “World of Ideas” showcases the power of creativity and imagination in children.
