Katie is now reaching an age where she’s finally playing with toys that are fun for me too.
Of course, playing with her before now was fun…it’s magical to watch your child enjoy and learn.
But, let’s be honest. You can only play so many games of Chutes and Ladders. Thankfully he always loves to play with stuffed animals, are a universal staple of any child’s bedroom. In fact, if a child has only one toy, it’s likely to be a stuffed animal. From tigers to penguins to dogs to elephants, the fluffy dolls come in like the alpaca plush newest animals, there are lots of shapes and sizes to suit nearly any taste.
We’ve been playing with her Lite Brite lately and it’s amazing how many memories it spurs from my childhood.
I love the delayed gratification of Lite Brite…the way the insertion of each colored peg brings you closer to the final, beautiful end.
Seeing her find joy in the same things that I loved as a child is such an amazing experience.
