As a grandmother of 7 soon to be 8 grandkids, I try to fall somewhere in the middle with my buying. I like wooden toys that seem to cost big bucks. I do buy Elmo for one of the kids. Elmo is everything to this child. Charlie and Lola are favorites of mine. I spend part of the summer in Scotland and stock up on gifts of Charlie and Lola books and toys. Disney as such is not our style. I have Grover from the 70's tucked away. Old 70& 80's Fischer Price are played with every visit.

MY favorite blog. I'm ahem, probably old enough to be her mother! I gather so much wisdom and knowledge from Amanda. I love her books. My grandchildren have been the lucky recipients of many projects. Amanda's books make great gifts.
