Lauren's First Toy!

Joe and I were at HomeGoods this morning, which is basically like TJ Maxx's home decor section on steroids. They have a great little section with kid's stuff...mostly bedding and cool nursery decor.

Tucked in behind some other stuff we spotted this. It's just the perfect height for a toddler to stand at and play. This is the very first toy we've purchased for Lauren and I think it's pretty darn cool.

I'm not totally sure kids still like to play with these, but I was having fun with it. We can give it a test run when Nancy comes home with Lily.

For the record, Ruby LOVES THOSE! We don't own one but she would LOVE to have one, I just don't have the space for it... so I'm going to go out on a limb here & say that Lauren is going to go SILLY CRAZY for hers! =)

Congrats on the first official toy!

This is so cool! I was at a store today that had these types of toys and I actually played with one of them. How funny that you ended up buying one for Lauren. She will love it!

Looks like an awesome and sturdy toy! It will be a big hit.
We had a Leap Frog table before we went to China and our dog would cock her head as the music played from the table. It was very funny to see our dog so interested in the table.

How fun to start the toy buying! I read your comment with your thoughts about leaving Lauren in daycare and hoping it will go well. I posted a little bit about how Abbey transitioned and hope it helps. Let me know if you have other questions. Finding the right person/place is the most important thing.

My boys LOVE these! We do not have one but when they go to the Doctors they hog it and will not let the others play with it!!! Of course the one at the Dr is not nearly as cool as Lauren's!!

Kelsey has a small one from Imaginarium (TRU) and loves it! We played with the one in the Dr's office so much that she cried when we left! (She came home at 8.5 months and still plays with it 10 months later!)

Lauren will love that! It's adorable and perfect for a little one!

Congrats on your first of a million toy purchases!
