She was still bored, and her mother wasn't yet home.
We love the style of this passage. We only get descriptions of Coraline's actions and we have to infer, or figure out, what exactly she's trying to do and why she's trying to do it. And when you have a bored kid at home alone, you can only imagine what trouble she'll cause...

A whole toy box filled with wonderful toys.
At first, Coraline does seem taken in by the neat things in the other world. It's definitely not boring, that is for sure. It's amazing how easily the little things can make us happy sometimes.

"So," said her other father. "Do you like it here?"
When comparing her real home to her other home, the she first thinks of is boring vs. interesting. Goes to show you what's on her mind.
