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.

Woody and Buzz Lightyear Toy Story Pook-a-Looz

Disney just introduced the new Pook-a-Looz. Two of my favorite characters are the Woody Pook-a-Looz and the Buzz Lightyear Pook-a-Loo Plush Toy . Both of them are simply adorable, and with the premiere of Toy Story 3 coming up in a few months they’re sure to be a hit.

The new Pook-a-Looz collectible plush dolls feature a unique interpretation of some of Disney’s favorite characters, including Mickey Mouse, , Pluto and many more.

The creators focused on capturing one key trait for each character in the new plush collection, so that each doll is unique and quirky to it’s original character.

The new Pook-a-Looz range in price from $7.99 to 12. 99 retail, and can be found at The Disney Store and at Amazon

Here are some of the other Pook-a-Looz available:

Melissa and Doug Baby Building Blocks

My son absolutely loved to build towers and then turn around and knock them down when he was a baby. When he knocked the tower down he would laugh his head off, then he’d want me to help him build it again two seconds later. He started with baby building blocks when he was barely a year old, and kept going from there. Some of my favorites are the Melissa and Doug building blocks.

Melissa and doug soft blocks

Melissa and Doug Soft Blocks are perfect for babies and young toddlers who are working on their building skills. Because they’re soft you don’t have to worry about babies falling on them and hurting themselves. The soft blocks are also large enough that they won’t pose a choking hazard.

Melissa and Doug Nesting and stacking blocks

Melissa and Doug Stacking and Nesting Blocks are some of my favorite first blocks for toddlers. They can be stacked up to build a tall tower, strung out along the ground, or nestled one inside the other for storage.

Melissa and doug wood blocks

When they’re good at building towers they can graduate to Melissa and Doug wood blocks and start creating building masterpieces.

Whatever blocks you choose, double check to make sure they’re age appropriate for your child before you let them play.
