Works For Me Wednesday- Toys Worth Buying

  Works for me Wednesday is a themed edition this week. Theme is Toys Worth Buying. To write a really good post would probably require me to have thought about Christmas gifts and toys. Um….hmmm….Lily mentioned something about Barbies.

Do you ever buy toys for your kids cause they really are something cool you want to play with? Like an Easy Bake Oven cause you never got one as a child (ahem, MOTHER!!!). So I decided to write about the toys I would buy if I selfishly was only thinking of myself. Which I may or may not do when I actually buy toys for my kids.

  • Playdoh Ice Cream Shoppe: I frankly hate it when my kids play with playdoh cause although it keeps them entertained for stretches of time, it makes too big of mess. However, this toy I think I might play with after they go to sleep. If only it came with edible playdoh. Hasbro people, get on that please.
  • Fisher Price Smart Cycle: Do you think I could fit on it? Do you think I could get it to work with Grey’s Anatomy? Seriously if they made these for adults and it was the only way to watch reality TV, we would have no obesity problem.
  • Wild Planet Animal Scramble: Apparently you hide 4 animals around the room and then the giraffe gives clues to help you find the animals. Forget hiding the animals. I am going to tape them to my keys, remote, Lily’s shoes and my hubby’s wallet. Then maybe it won’t take 45 minutes every morning to find them.
  • Fisher Price I Can Play Guitar: I bought a guitar for myself in 1997. It is still in it’s case. Gathering dust and going horribly out of tune. I so long to be a rock star chick. Maybe I should start with something geared at kids. Or maybe I should continue on with air guitar on the tennis racket.
  • Dr. Who Dalek Voice Changer Helmet: I don’t know what this is or what it does exactly, but I think I could seriously freak my kids out. And really, that is priceless.

Head over to Rocks In My Dryer to get ideas for unselfish toy ideas for your kids. But how fun is that really?

    I was sad when my daughter outgrew her dolls ’cause I still liked playing with them. And I also liked playing cars with my son. I don’t think the kid in us ever truly grows up.
