Froebel like to have “gifts” for the children when they entered the classroom, these gifts were various objects such as a wooden box, knitted balls, wooden cylinders, and various geometric shapes. He liked to give the children these gifts to allow them to use their imagination. (Douglas, F.2008). Often he would give the children clay and paper, so that they could create new beings by moulding the clay or repeatedly fold the paper to see what shapes that they could create out of them. He liked to use these objects as he felt that they helped to increase the children’s fine motor skills and attention spans.
The setting resembles a typical setting that regular people would find themselves in at their own homes. The similarities in setting help to create a connection between the viewer and the advertisement, pushing pathos even farther.

In fact, knowledge of nursery rhymes seems to foster children 's phonological awareness, which, in turn enhances their literacy skills in school (Bryant, Bradley, Maclean & Crossland, 1989; Maclean, Bryant & Bradley, 1987; Harper, 2011). The fact that nursery rhymes are more about rhythm and sonority of words than their actual meaning could explain why phonological awareness skills are easily enhanced by nursery rhymes. Children enjoy the sonority and rhythm of words in nursery rhymes in spite of their incomplete, or even poor, knowledge of their meaning (De Santis, 1986; Zachok, 1992). When their attention is shifted away from the meaning, children can focus more easily on the phonological features of words (van Kleeck, 1995).

These naturally occurring learning opportunities often happen without warning and combine to create the life experiences for a child (Dunst et al., 2001). However, for a child with a disability, these opportunities often occur less frequently and require more planning by caregivers (Bornman & Rose, 2010). One type of natural learning opportunity is found in the routines and rituals of families (Dunst et al., 2001). When these family routines and rituals are reliable children are provided with a sense of consistency and are able to predict how their behaviors will influence their environments, and this results in positive behavior outcomes (Dunst, Trivette, Raab & Masiello, 2008). Participation Broad-based interventions aim to increase participation in everyday life activities across environments, in home, school and community settings, for children with disabilities (Bornman & Granlund, 2007; Bornman & Rose, 2010).

A clinical report from the American Academy of Pediatrics (2007) stated that though play is a treasured part of childhood that offers children with significant developmental benefits and parents the opportunity to fully engage with their children, there were still quite a lot of forces interacting to effectively reduce many children’s abilities to reap the benefits of
