Parker spent a good amount of time at my parents house (Bam & Chief) over the last few weeks while Rob was at training and I was in Chicago at BlogHer. Back when Parker was born, my mom started collecting a lot of the things we use so that Rob and I don’t have to cart everything up when we come and visit. She ended up getting the same Gulliver crib from IKEA, a Joovy Playard, the North States Superyard and all the essentials. It has been so nice to only pack clothing.

My mom has gathered quite a collection of toys from a few consignment sales and I thought it would be fun to share some of Parker’s favorites.

Parker’s new favorite thing is to dance and the Pop Tunes Boom Box plays some really good tunes. It’s an older toy so you are most likely to only find it at a consignment sale, garage sale or thrift store. I will have to keep my eyes open for it because it is a classic that I would love to have at our house too! 
It didn’t take long for Parker to figure out how to work the VTech Explore & Learn Helicoptor  He loves pushing the balls through and playing with all of the buttons on the side. Once we gets a little older and starts walking we can put the string back on so he can drag it around. 
I love that the Battat Sort & Stack is multiple activities in one. It’s great to build up with nice big cups but P also likes playing with the shapes and putting them in the holes and cups. 
He is really starting to like trucks and the Fisher-Price Little People Rumblin Rocks Dump Truck & Dumpety the Dump Truck are perfect for him. He has already learned how to make noise with them even if he can’t find the people. 
My mom found the Step2 Doorway Playhouse at the last consignment sale during the 50% off day. She wasn’t sure that P would really like it but he is having a blast. He loves when someone sits on the other side of the door and hands him toys through the mailbox 🙂
