1 : for dress up How cute is this mask and tail?! I was just browsing Etsy and thought this was pretty genius. The shop BHBKidstyle has several different animals to choose from. So so cute.
2 : for the car ride It is fascinating how kid specific music seems to calm a kid down in the car. I was all about some Raffi as a little kid myself. This could be pretty handy dandy for the next couple of years.
3 : for eco friendly play Myles received a Green Toys dump truck and shape sorter for his birthday. I really love this company. 100% made in the USA out of recycled plastic. This stuff is fantastic. The helicopter and airplanes look pretty great.
4 : for pretend munching Who knew Ikea made really neat toys? Our friends have the Duktig felt food sets and they are pretty darn cute. The vegetable set can be found on Amazon, but they make a fruit set as well.
5 : for the little helper A mini version of mommy's vacuum cleaner? Um yes please. He loves chasing me around when I vacuum. I would wager he would love to "help" when he gets a little bigger. I know some kids love their own broom too.
6 : for carrying stuff This cute little backpack would be the right size to hold Myles' snacks and diapers when we go places and when he gets a little older he could carry it himself. These Skip Hop zoo backpacks are a good small size.
7 : for the eventual walker Little kid shoes are expensive. Feel free to get him some in the sizes to come... 5 and 6. I love these little Saucony Jazz shoes.
