We are one of the many families that are scaling back this year. We never really over did the holiday gift giving but this year we are really thinking things through, making things by hand when we can and making sure that what we do purchase is worthwhile.
We went to the children's museum over the weekend. Looks like we have a little builder on our hands because little g. played obsessively with these really fun Magna Tiles. I think these tiles have made our holiday shopping list along with a magnifying glass. One of the other gift qualifications I have for my 3-year-old is the captivation factor. Will the toy keep her busy for a day, a month or a year? If only someone could measure that on the box right next to the age appropriate info things would be a lot easier. c.
