Block Play!

Feb

As parents, we're always looking for toys that will be played with over the course of many many years (or so we hope). I've had my fair share of regretful toy purchases, and if I could do it all over again, I'd probably only buy a handful of toys. One of the things I would definitely get is blocks. But blocks come in all sorts of brands and forms, and my vote goes to Janod! It's one of those things kids can use repetitively and for different purposes. Like legos, they encourage imaginative play and can take on any story.

Tegu Blocks

One of the things that provided us with lots of airplane entertainment on our trip this past winter are the Tegu blocks! I'd seen them a while ago and thought they were the coolest invention. Wooden blocks with embedded magnetic strips that allows you to create all types of vehicles, buildings and animals?! Wooden blocks that your child can't lose because they don't fall apart or fall all over the place? Um, yes please! I made sure to keep all the little toys I secretly purchased for the little guy hidden from him in his little back pack.

A few days ago, I took the little guy to some of our favorite toy stores around the area to start on our christmas shopping and to find little toys to hide in his backpack for our trip next week. Shopping for kids stuff has become my biggest obsession. It's just as much fun (if not more fun) for me as it is for S. I step into a toy store and my eyes start to wander in all directions. It's really hard for me not to find something I want to buy each time we go.

Made of cedarwood, this toy is made for balancing, stacking and can be played with in the bath. These adorable wooden animals can stick to bath tiles when wet! I also love the fact that you can store coloring pencils in the wooden box. This would make for a wonderful Christmas present! Get them HERE!

"Cheese!"

Our little guy is starting to really enjoying taking pictures. As in, HE takes the pictures. He let's us take his pictures most of the time (but sometimes it depends on his mood). But he runs around in the mornings with his dad's broken camera and says "cheese!" to all of us. I'm pretty sure he can't see through the little hole, actually I'm pretty sure it's not even open, but he has a blast nonetheless!

How cute is this Mike He's design of the classic tale "Little Red Riding Hood"? It's a fun play on the Matryoshka doll design and features little red riding hood (ofcourse) eaten by wolf then looking like granny. These nesting dolls aren't just cute, they also serve as snack containers for kids (with lids!). Made of sustainable materials.
