Tipful Thursday

Today’s Tipful Thursday topic is, favorite car toy. What is a must have toy for your little one in the car that makes the trip a little easier?

It’s important to Rob and I that P get use to riding in the car so that we can travel anywhere we want while he is still young. The best way I know to do that is get him in the car everyday, even if it is a short trip. It’s still a little hard to drive around with P by myself but certainly not impossible. We have had our fair share of emergency stops along the highway to reinsert the paci or for a top off. When it is the three of us driving, Rob or I will sit in the back to make things a little easier.

I can’t imagine what goes through a two month olds mind, but a few weeks ago we realized that P needed something to stimulate him while in the car. We saw these little bugs in Toys R Us and decided to give them a try. They are light weight and move very easily while the car is in motion. P loves watching them swing about and I can assume he likes the sounds they make as well. For us, these were a GREAT find!

This product is cost effective and worth price, is durable and made of strong materials that I imagine will hold up through multiple children, extremely useful and readily available at TRU, Amazon and other locations.

Love the toys, not too happy that they are classified as “vintage” though!

I had some time to play with my little cousin while in TN and all I can say is, “what a trip down memory lane”! His Oma and Opa have set up my cousins old kitchen and along with that, all the toys!

I felt like a kid in a candy store! All the memories of playing kitchen came back to me. My Dad said that our old toys would be staying at the house for when Peanut visit’s Grandma and Grandpa.
So what did a momma-to-be do…? Got on Amazon and started shopping!
And these are on my watch list!
