Rule #273: Amazon was made for you and me.
I love me some Amazon. I find all kinds of random goodies on there, and I wanted to share a few that have really helped us out in the Toddler Game. Here are a few of my favorite toddler finds on Amazon:
My sister-in-law had this in her purse one time (she does dyslexia therapy – it wasn’t just for her own fun, but that would be okay, too). She busted it out and let Corey play with it for a while, and the kid was HOOKED! We haven’t bought one for him yet, but we will eventually. I’m planning on keeping it in the car so we can bring it into restaurants as a lovely distraction.
Boogie Board ($20)
Corey got one of these from a family friend, and praise the reusable gods for it! It’s this really cool water-based coloring pad that can be dried and reused later. You put some water in the pen (Corey hasn’t been able to unscrew it … yet), and as they drag it along the pad, the different colors in the picture appear. We use it all the time as a distraction when I’m trying to cook dinner but don’t want to mess with crayons and stickers and Play-Doh, oh my!
Corey’s school has a fun Trike-a-thon coming up, so we figured it was about time to get him a tricycle of his own. We have a fun bike that a neighbor gave us, but his feet are juuuuuuust a few inches away from being able to peddle. Jon Boy and I loved the classic look of this trike (and the price). He assembled it under 15 minutes, too (BONUS!). Corey loves it so far! Also, I really am gonna need him to get a buddy to ride on the back so we can take a picture. I don’t know if there could be anything cuter than a Toddler Tricycle Gang.
