Holiday Gift Ideas
Hello All!

Just wanted to see what kinds of toys you will be getting your little ones this year.  I desperately need toy ideas so if you know what you are doing, please share! :)

I was thinking of getting her "walking" toys and things that she can use beyond that.  Any ideas?

I bought a walking toy that turns into a riding toy.  It's a lion, but I bought a cute doll walker one for our niece who is 5 weeks younger than Brock.

Mark already has a walking toy (we have a ton of baby toys  because he is our second). For Christmas this year we are taking the family for a week in Disneyland, but decided each child would get a stocking and 3 presents to unwrap. We bought Mark a See n' Say, a jack in the box, and a wooden bead maze. Then I just stuffed his stocking with small baby toys that I found at a local shop. We are really into classic developmental toys so we just focused on that for the boys.

Whitney... this is your second so you know, but I was thinking of the bead maze but wasn't sure if that was too advanced.  I typically like to get her toys that are above her age, but I wasn't totally sure if this was too off the charts.  Glad to hear you think it is a good toy for 9mo.+, too.

What is a see n' play, though?  I have no idea about toys!!! haha

Ovaz-
The bead maze is too advanced, but because they don't disconnect and therefore don't pose a choking hazard I thought that it couldn't hurt. They are supposed to really help logical cognitive development too. We bought ours at Target for $15, which is way cheaper than I have been able to find anywhere else.
A See n' Say is a little musical toy- when you pull the lever a arrow rotates around and the toys makes the sounds according to the picture the arrow lands on. I know that sounds way more complicated than it actually is....

We are getting him a cool wooden drum, Phin loves drumming on everything. A bathtub faucet spout cover thingy, some new bath toys and books. The rest of the family will spoil him way overboard so we are going easy.

I did see a huge bead activity center at costco the other day and fell in love with it. But $100 bucks for one thing this late in the budgeting plan was out of the question. I also drooled over a gorgeous wooden rocking horse

We just put this together for Hayden and she LOVES it: http://www.step2.com/product.cfm?product_id=1155

I think we are looking for a cool globe and/or map for her room. Also books. And PB kids has some really cute toys!

I am finding lately the best toys for hayden are wooden spoons, metal mixing bowls and tuperware!

SO FUNNY Ovaz! Hayden made my BUY a wooden spoon from crate and barrel the other day bc she started EATING IT in the store! I felt bad putting it back. LOL. Funny thing is as a kid my mother would threaten us with spankings and the wooden spoon - I was terrified of it!
