here are some more of my favorite things :)
1. bubber. hank received this for christmas and its so fun! it sticks way better than moonsand but is not as sticky on the hands as playdoh. i suggest buying the kit with the tray...our rule (for the little ones) is to keep it in the tray. :)2. ravensburger puzzles. sturdy box, sturdy pieces and they have a huge variety. they carry kids (50 pieces) up to adults (1000 pieces and more). if you're going to have puzzles around the house i highly suggest investing in ravensburger puzzles. you'll know what i mean once you have them! you can buy them online but our local barnes and noble carries them as well as most high end toy stores.
3. smartwool socks. if you have snow by you these should be keeping your tootsies warm! once you wear these socks you'll be hooked! again, local shoe stores or sporting good stores may carry these socks. they are a bit pricey so i ask for them as gifts :)
