Usage: When baby plays with toys, or household items like cups and plates, the occasional break is inevitable. You don’t need to make a big deal out of breaks, so that baby becomes shy about handling anything. But, you do want to be matter of fact that the item is broken and is not coming back so that baby realizes that it is not something they want to happen again and is more careful in future.
