I should have started this post over a year ago but better late than never. I plan on going back and mentioning some of our favorite toys over the past year or so. I am going to pick out our top ten favorite things right now (not any order).
The Yellow Bucket.
I am sad to say that the drumming got the best of the yellow bucket and even though it has already been taped back together, it is now seen the end of its amazing run as a great toy. But it has been the best $1 I have ever spent. He loved to walk around with it on his head, put things in it, and recently drum on it.
Magna-Tiles Clear Colors 32 piece set
We got these for Christmas. Yes, it is for three and over but I don’t leave them out so he can play with them with me. He doesn’t build up yet but likes to stick them together. We also bought a nifty light table so they glow. He loves to lay them out on the light table.
LEGO DUPLO 4624 Brick Box
Another Christmas gift that he is loving. We got him two sets so he would have enough to built. He is enjoying stacking them as high as he can. He loves the pieces that have the doors so he can open them and peak through.
Daron Airtran Pullback with Light and Sound
All I can say about this toy is “Thank you god.” We bought this during our flight layover in ATL, and I have to say it was worth every single penny. He is obsessed with stars and airplanes (and now the moon). This is a fun toy that makes noises and moves.
Melissa & Doug Construction Wooden Chunky Puzzle
Ok, he loves puzzles but I wish you could check these out from the library (can you!?). He was able to master these within the first go round with them and now is super speedy. He will finish and ask for more. However if you put them away for a few days he will act excited again about them. The toy is great but only kills about 3 minutes, then he wants more.
Crayola Washable Crayons 16-pk.
He loves art. We have a table for him and he loves to draw. He can spend ten minutes or more on a drawing task. However, he is now into making us draw him stars and moon, and he runs a very tight ship about this and will even tell you where to put the next star.
The Wheels on the Bus
Love love love this book. It is so cute and Kodi loves for me to read this to him.
Bear in a Square (A Barefoot Board Book)
Love this book. He loves to point out the shapes on each page. I also like that it is a book that will grow with complexity. One the side are the shapes that you can find in the picture and each page has one more shape than the first. So you can use this book to identify the shapes, and count the shapes.
How to Catch a Star
This was a Christmas present from his Aunt. And he loves it, and I love it. A wonderful story about a boy and his star filled with childhood imagination.
