I once said I wasn't going to be one of those parents who buy their kids tons of toys. Well...can I take it back? I mean, I don't think we are overbuying toys...(just yet), but it's definitely helpful to have some play things to make playtime more fun and silly.
So with a 'Buy 1, Get 1 Free' coupon on Fisher Price infant toys, we took Anna to Toys R Us for some new toys. She's much too young to appreciate a toy store, but sat patiently and chomped on her peacock while her parents deliberated on which toys to get.
Xylophone. Colored cups. Squeaky toys. Shakers. Rattles. Stacking blocks. SO MANY CHOICES!
We ended up getting a shape sorter toy and a tugboat set for bath time.
And on the way out, we saw some Kai-Lan stuff and bought them too on an impulse.
After we got home, we laid out all the toys in front of Anna and guess which one she went for?
The plastic bag.
Because we are teaching her life isn't just one big playtime, we took her to the local library last week.
