great gift #5



still going with the great gifts.. there are a few left to share!

check out lucy's new sandbox toys (to go with her brand-new sandbox): 



this set is by green toys, a great company that make toys for kids out of recycled milk jugs. lucy already has the tea set, kitchen set and indoor gardening kit--can you tell we are a fan of this brand?

the toys have a great, heavy-duty feel to them, much unlike the typical plastic sand toys that can be bought at target or the dollar store. i came across a bunch of cheap toys stashed in my garage from my days as a nanny, and they have such a crappy feel to them when compared with the green toys set. lucy loves the rope handle on the sand bucket--i guess it's the little things!

how do you keep the sand out of lucy's mouth and eyes?

erin said...

lar--she's not gotten it into her eyes, but she has taken a few gritty tastes of the sand, and decided she doesn't much care for it. kids learn quickly!

What type of wood did your husband use to make the sandbox? We want to build one for our daughter also.
