He's a Lego Maniac!

Brand: Lego Product: Lego Juniors Fire Patrol Suitcase

Well, it's official. I have a child old enough to play with real, actual Legos, and not the (still fun) Duplo or Megablocks. Lego has fairly recently come out with these JUNIOR sets, which are fully functional Lego pieces, but instead of having 16 little tiny pieces making up the body of a motorcycle, it's just one complete piece, making it easier for beginning Lego Maniacs!

Green Kid Crafts Sale

Brand: Learning Resources Product: Cupcakes

Froot Loop found a set of play cupcakes at my parents’ house that I had as a kid. It’s a set of 4 cupcakes with 4 different colored frosting tops. There’s also a cute tray that the cupcakes sit in. Basically, all you do is put the different cupcake tops on the cupcakes and put them in and take them out of the cupcake tray, but it was one of my favorite things to play with and now it’s his too!

Froot Loop has a slight obsession with play food. We have other Hape products and they are so fun as well.

Since the Plastic Ice Cream sets were such a big hit with Froot Loop, we put a better quality set on his wishlist for Christmas last year and he got it!

He screams, I scream for Ice Cream

Today is going to be a two-fer Tuesday! TWO reviews on ice cream toys, because who doesn't love ice cream? Well, who besides me, because I'm lactose sensitive and cannot eat ice cream... but I do love me some frozen yogurt!

Toot Your Own Horn

Product: Saxoflute

We visited a local science museum not too long ago using a couple gift cards we got for Christmas. Since we had a little left on the cards and we decided that our boys were still a little too young to really get a whole lot out of the museum, we let them pick out a few things in the gift store. One of the things they picked out was this fun music toy.
