It cracks me up how sophisticated toys for babies & toddlers are nowadays- they even sell baby computers! What I find most amusing, is that while some toys have every bell and whistle modern technology can offer, it is often the simple, classic toys that are the favorites among little ones. (Or in the case of my daughter lately, she finds her tube of diaper cream only slightly less fascinating than the dog's water bowl.. sigh ;) )
My 2 and a half year olds favorite toy is a slinky. I love it. I remember spending hours watching my slinky walking down the stairs (I can still here the tune to the commercial "slinky, slinky,.. makes a wonderful toy for a girl or a boy!)
And who among us did not have the good old fisher price ring stacker? It is still a favorite with my daughter. I am looking forward to when she can walk so I can get her the ball popper push toy- another toy I remember pushing around and having a blast with. So, while I appreciate technology, here is to those classic toys that are still around for good reason- babies and kids still love them!!!
