New Toy

I have never been one of those women who was crazy for shoes, though I have some nice pairs. A clothing store? I'm in and out in a blur of efficiency. Some women go nuts in craft shops. I am untouched by any and all of these. No, the big peril of this job is toys. Toys are just so attractive, and Toy Shops are so much fun! Here's what I picked up last weekend: Isn't it cute??? And look! Each of those layers has another little face! See the lovely little blue ball nestled in the depression in the base? With the cheerful grin, and, though you can't tell from here, delicate rattle? It is, sadly, already lost. I'm not worried, though. It'll turn up - likely under my left foot as I descend the stairs with my arms full of laundry!

Ooh! That is cute! I haven't bought any ring toys yet because I haven't found any I liked. Where did you find it?

Just can't help but smile looking at those.

Weirdgirl: I think the store I bought these from is only in my city. However, it's a Tomy toy, which is a pretty big brand, so I should think you'd be able to find them just about anywhere. They're not expensive, either: less than $20.00

Cheryl: That was my reaction exactly. How could I not buy something that makes me smile every time I see it??

That is SO CUTE! I've never seen one of those stacking toys with the faces. In-fant would LOVE that.

Mary, you're my new heroine. I like toyshops too; I also agree with you on the terminological debate over at heather's place. Can't say more since this is clearly a family-oriented blog.

Hey there, Rob, and thank you! I'm chortling away merrily at the thought of you coming from that discussion to this sweet little post - LOL. Um, yeah, even at the heady and intellectual levels we're discussing things over there, I don't think it's appropriate here... You can always email me if you want to tell me more about how wonderful I am! LOL

I don't usually read "mommy blogs" 'cause my kids are long since grown up. But periodically I look at random sites that happen to be near mine in the TTLB ecosystem. I'll bookmark this one and I've sent the link to my daughter. I love your descriptions of how the kids are thinking. I'm reassured to know there are daycare providers as good as you.

Hello, and thank you for referring me to your daughter. I took the TTLB link off my index page because it slowed the loading of my blog so severely. I didn't realize I'd still show on the ecosystem, but happily for me, I do.

Too cute! Of course, it appeals to kids of all ages! As I was trying to open the comment box, my son came into the room and it only took a second--from across the room--to glance over and yell "HEY! What did you find??!?"

I'm liking the orange one. I think she's my fave.

And I hope they arent as dangerous underfoot as they look ;)

Lory: My 12 year old loves them, I love them, my partner gets a chuckle from them. Now you and your son(is he the seven year old?) What a great toy!

Heather: She looks pretty content. She's taking a deeeep breath, and letting all the tensions slide away...

So very sweet, yet oddly kinky.

Sorry, that was wrong. I must have my own head up my ass today.
