Claire just won't play with any toy, shes rather picky that way, but I suppose most kids are. We have foam blocks that sat in our office for a few months and most recently Claire has decided to take these foam blocks and build mini block cities all over our house. ALL OVER. It takes me a while to corral them all up and put back in their box only to find them all over the house again, I should just give up on the dream of a clutter free house. Here is Claire hard at work building a block city on top of lily's dog crate:
|Deciding what blocks will work in this city|
|Do I put the purple block here or on the other side|
|I just don't know|
So with Claire's obsession with stacking, sorting, re-stacking and building block cities I not only recommend any stacking toy to any 16-18 (who knows how much longer) month old, but also I have a couple items on my want list. Anything to distract Claire from accosting me with the ipad screaming "icky" or hitting me in the face with the tv remote to watch Mickey Mouse Club is a good thing (although for anyone nervous on flying with a toddler, for us MMC worked like a charm on the ipad, commence baby zone out).
I threw in the table with two chairs only because Claire is getting old enough to use one, and I imagine her and Tom playing nicely and eating turkey sandwiches. Although I may not be as lucky. I found all these items on Diapers.com, again my favorite site to shop from for babies.
