A little bit of...

A quick trip past Wal-mart's children's aisle reveals a vast array of innovative, cute, fun, creative, and generally unnecessary, toys. It has often been remarked that a toddler prefers anything but toys.

While Rosalind does love her toys, a set of measuring spoons or pile of Tupperware provides countless hours of fun.

Over at Rocks in my Dryer the question of the day is "what toys are worth getting and keeping?" In answer, here are a few pictures.

Books, of course! Never too little to start learning. :)


A dolly and stroller- mommy training in action.


Her sweet cuddly friends...

While there are many other toys she loves --like her blocks and puzzles and Noah's ark-- I think the best "toy" of all is still just a bit of creativity....

Joy at discovering a fallen acorn.


After watching me wash the sink with a white cloth, she walked over the the toilet paper, pulled a few pieces off and began scrubbing the toilet seat lid. Toilet paper is white, right?


Guess what I have...


Mama's keys.


Now guess what I have....

You know ... I think the simplest things are the best! It always makes me smile to see how much delight a child can have in a box or the wrapping paper, y'know? :)
