Holiday Gift List as Not Seen on Thingamababy

The following thumbnail gallery represents some of the toys given this year by Thinga-readers to their children. Alas, no one gave the loving gift of a cardboard box this year.

    That is great!

    My Gal got a big ole tub of Play-Doh and Accessories, The Dangerous Book for Girls, a Cash Register for her ever-expanding collection of foods and such!

    She did have just as much fun with the boxes though!

    oops! I meant to contribute, and forgot, or got lazy. My daughter got a few of the things on this list, in various permutations…and thankfully, the kids LOVE everything.

    I figured my presents to my suddenly Batman crazy boys were not the type you were looking for, but for my boys the
    My First Batmobile we got them was the hit of the day, and quite the toy to fight over. Just now my two year old son woke out of a deep sleep crying because he didn’t have his Batman guy. So, we searched and found that all important action figure. He previously was completely uninterested in security blankets or stuffed animals, now we can’t get him to take off his Batman cape or let go of his action figure. I say action figure to differentiate it’s not stuffed, but made of plastic. If it was stuffed it would still be a doll regardless of the fact that he’s a boy. Wish I knew how to make this link smaller.

    I wanted to ask if the saxoflute worked well… looks very fun, if it did!

    Did the Plan Nuts and Bolts get played with? We’ve had ours for three years and I’m still the only person to play with them.

    Also, I’ve been eying the tub tunes… were those worth buying?

    Wanted to also pass along:

    Plan toys Castle… not all wood… I was disappointed to find that the gray walls are foam… which means easy to destroy for my two boys.

    Jumping Shapes ( absolutely the coolest shape sorter I’ve ever seen. My 3 yo and 1yo loved it, as do I! If you push fast enough the shapes pop up into the air and you can try to catch them. Sturdy and fun!

    Stacking Cups were much smaller than I thought… no where near the size of stacking boxes.

    Twig Blocks… the favorite gift so far… really open-ended, I love them as much as the boys! So much more than just a block set.
