Really? You could only find two styles in the low-end range? I don't know about the rest if the readers but I cannot afford to pay $50 for a fork! Will just keep using my mom's old sterling silver which I have to hand wash.....sigh

We called them The Roundies. That is the family name. The wooden ones are the best. By the way, Weebles are totally different toys.

Not my toy era, but my daughter's. Her baby bedding was Care Bears, she had several CPK and we loved pound puppies, littlest pet shop pets, and Mimi and the goo-goos. Those might be early '90's tho!

My daughter and I planned to make a strawberry-rhubarb pie, saw this and changed gears. We still used the strawberries but added the crumble. Yum! Next time will just use rhubarb. btw it looks like the step for adding the topping was left out of the directions.

I am preparing to teach in a new preschool classroom and will use this cure to sort and evaluate what we will need this year! Great timing! Already have one grocery bag filled with "missing pieces, not age/developmentally appropriate, etc."
