Celebrating Hannukah and Christmas (We can and do! Thanks Jen ; D) has its pros and cons. Monday night I was up till the wee hours of the morning getting B.'s Thomas the Train table ready for the first night of Hannukah and then I realized I was going to have to do the same thing all over again on Christmas Eve.
But on the plus side, I am resource central for anyone who's still Christmas shopping (more helpful when the two holidays don't actually overlap) if they want to know what worked and what didn't for Hannukah.
So far this year the train table is a thumbs up. It's expensive and a pain in the ass to assemble but don't go generic, the Thomas equipment is really well made and will last forever.
Feed the Bunny and Mr. Potato Head have been epic. Playfoam's been sort of bust. I think it's too sophisticated a concept for a 32-month-old or it's for the type of toddler that really likes to freestyle sculpt.
And for anyone whose kids are a year younger, we're still playing with last year's Melissa & Doug hide and seek board.
