Say that title five times fast. We went to our favorite thrift store today, and I found some great wooden toys for our son. He’s able to sit up now and play with things, and while the wooden spoon and saucepan work great, I thought adding a few new things into the mix would liven things up a bit for him. I found a wonderful wooden multi-level car/road thingie, with a wind up elevator for moving cars from one level to the next. Didn’t have any cars with it, but wooden blocks work just fine for now, and for $2, we couldn’t miss. We also got a set of three wooden train cars that hitch together, and several wooden blocks that fit into the cars – also for $2. And a tambourine made of wood with metal discs for playing beautiful music. He spent about an hour this evening playing with his train and blocks – just picking them up, wacking them against the floor, banging them into each other… it was as much fun for us to watch as it was for him to do. And for a total of four dollars, we feel like we did pretty well.
