"WOW" Toys

This little "WOW" brand dump truck has been awesome for the little boys. It has a spring loaded dumper that makes it easy for little ones to dump and the front has a see through window for your little driver. We got it for Tyse last year for Christmas. He has played with it alot and its fun to see Jack push it around now, making truck noises. Im sure most of you know about the "Toy Store" in Topeka (i think theres one in Lawrence too) its awesome, I promise you once you go into it you will never step foot in a "Toys R Us" again, at least we havent.

Fav' Toys

I thought it would be fun to post toys that my boys got last year for Christmas that they are still playing with A YEAR LATER. I love buying toys (mostly because thats all I do all day is play, basically they keep me sain) sometimes they are "one timer" toys that they will play with for a week or even a month then never pick up again. I try really hard to buy toys that they will not get tired of after a few months-which is really hard sometimes. Also, toys that are sturdy enough to endure lots of rough playing. You know if you have read this blog for any length of time that VIDEO GAMES DONT COUNT!! Hey, mabe you will get a Christmas present idea for your little guy or gal.

This first one that made the list is a big bass fish from Bass Pro. When Jasper bought them I thought they would just be taking up space. They have had so much fun with them sleeping on them, pulling as a sleigh, making forts, fishing. We'll see in the next few weeks how many I can come up with.
