Brilliant Basics Stack and Nest Pans

My son loved the stack and nest toys when he was little. He loved to stack and unstack them for hours. The whole idea totally fascinated him.

Stack and nest toys are wonderful for teaching children hand eye coordination and fine motor skills. Brilliant Basics has a new set of Stack & Nest Pots & Pans.

This adorable set features three brightly colored pans for kids to shake, rattle, stack and nest. The set also features a roller ball to bat at for jingling sounds and a large mirror for peek-a-boo fun.

The stack and nest pans are recommended for children 6 months to 3 years old, so it would make a perfect toddler gift for kids who like to join in the cooking fun. Now you can give them their own pan set.

Toy Story 3 Plush Toys

The new Toy Story 3 movie premiering this June features several really cool plush toys. One of the biggest new Toy Story stars in the latest movie is Lotso Bear.

Toy Story plush

Lotso seems to be a friendly bear, but I think Woody and Buzz need to beware!

There’s also a new Toy Story 3 Plush Mr. Potato Head and Mrs. Potato Head, both premiering on May 1 (and both are available now for pre-order from Amazon). Don’t they make an adorable pair!

And Hamm as a Plush Toy is another old favorite who looks simply adorable showing of his new softer side.

I don’t know what this little guy’s name is but he’s a new Stretch Octopus plush from Toy Story 3. Kind of cute! I wonder if he’ll be a good guy, or a bad guy. Hmmm.

Do you have a favorite toy from the new Toy Story 3 movie coming out? I think the Alien is my favorite!

Breyer Saddle Club Plush

When I was growing up I collected Breyer horses. I still have some of the horses today. They didn’t have the plush horses then, but I think they’re simply adorable, especially the Saddle Club plush

All of the Breyer Saddle Club plush come with lifelike tack including a saddle with an embossed Breyer® logo, a bridle and a saddle pad with an embroidered Saddle Club logo. Here are a few of my favorites:

Breyer Saddle Club Plush Starlight is for the buckskin fans out there.

I think my favorite of the Breyer Saddle Club Plush is Prancer.

Breyer’s Belle is beautiful too.

All of the horses come with their name embroidered on their left front hoof.
