Melissa and Doug Cleaning Set. This is a cute and functional set. My girls love to play house with it and they also love to use the brooms to help me clean the bathroom & kitchen. It’s solid and the stand makes it easy to put away.
Spend Save Share Money Bank. I got this for my oldest. The piggy bank has three separate compartments one for spending one for saving and another for giving. It is incredibly cute and has been an easy way to teach money management skills.
Night Sky Book My girls love this book! It has 34 glow in the dark constellations. The maps are arranged by season and it even tells you a bit about the mythology behind the formations.
and its perfect companion . . .
is this glow in the dark star set . My girls (with my husband’s help) have created several constellations on their ceiling. They had a blast. I love that it takes up no extra space in their bedroom, it had a lot of play value in it’s building and they still love having the lights turned out at night so they can see the stars.
Toysmith Critter Cabin. This is a sturdy bug house that has lasted us two years without any problems. My girls have successfully raised 3 caterpillars in it this summer and were able to observe countless other little critters.
Who says you have to buy toys anyways. All children love flash lights and they’re very handy to have around the house.
What toys do/did your children love?
