My husband was hanging over my shoulder while I wrote this post and ask me if I thought that this "toy" was blog-worthy. I told him that I am sharing the "toys" that the boys love to play with and even though this one cost a dollar at Target, if definitely falls into that category. Several months ago my mom bought Diego a packet of Magic Grow Dinosaurs. I used them for a few weeks to lure him into the bathtub on the days that he wanted to stay dirty. Basically they are little capsules that you submerge in water and after a few minutes of absorbing the water the reveal their shape. I was surprised that they actually looked like what they were supposed to. The back of the packet had a silouette of each dinosaur with its name so that we could identify it. Afterwards Diego sorted them by color, food preference, and then conducted dino-battles. Except for the few that Mateo ripped in half, they lasted for weeks. I finally had to just throw them away. I found the Magic Grow Vehicles (seen below) at Target and used them as stocking stuffers. These have not been as big of a hit as the dinosaurs but I think that they was definitely worth a buck.
Do you have a toy or item that your child ACTUALLY plays with that you would like to share with us? Please leave a comment below or link-up if you wrote a post about it.
