:) I love how a teacher-mom brain thinks! toys are fun but educational too! Elizabeth turned 2 right after Christmas. She has loved lacing beads, wooden puzzles - shapes, colors, numbers, etc. These puzzles have been great - she is now doing 24 pc puzzles independently! my sister-in-law got a set of wooden/soft foam blocks for her daughter and then (crafty mom alert!) made fabric covered blocks for her too! (mod-podge fabric onto wood cubes) they are adorable and super easy. It makes an ordinary toy (bland color blocks) super girly! We also love purses - any size/shape/color. I LOVE the double jogging stroller! happy shopping!
