Baby Declan’s room is the epitome of a child who has been lavished with toys of all shapes, sizes and colours.

Different LEGO sets make the bulk of scattered toys in the four-year old’s room alongside miniature cars, stuffed animals, tricycles and music instruments.

His mother, Nancy Wambua, said while the toys keep her son busy, they are her way of showing him deep affection.

Owing to her time-intensive career as a marketing manager, she hardly finds time to take the child out sightseeing or on frequent vacations.
