In fairness to the author of the article, it isn't entitled, "Every Way Every Child Entertained Themselves 30 Years Ago," just 10 ways- and obviously, it doesn't have to apply to every person.

TrixieLich- I know you can find it at office supply stores like Staples...possibly craft stores as well.

Although it does work best with eggs that have just been cooked- it also works if you peel your egg and sit it in warm water for a minute. I've tried it both ways. Enjoy everyone.

just fyi everyone- the first pic is not someone's room, but primarily a photo of the bed from the site that sells it.

Yes- those are the exact ones I was referring to. My daughter learned all of her shapes from them.

anmar- there was a bug in our Sweet Pea as well, and when we contacted customer service they explained a way for us to update it and get rid of the bugs. Ever since then, it's been fine. I forget the exact instructions, but shoot them an email. I think you'll find it'll work perfectly once you update it.

Hi all. I authored this post and yikes- certainly didn't mean to start any controversy! Of course it took a number of sittings and guidance from me, but since that wasn't the point of the post- I didn't focus on it. She certainly does have great focus and she can do them by herself after a few attempts- that's all I can say! Hope people will focus on the idea of swapping puzzles or other toys and give it a try...thanks for the neat idea of painting the puzzle "tomorrow"!

Great comments everyone. As is the case with most things, it depends on the child I think, where you live, and also the age of the child. My daughter started potty training at 18 months so it would've been a little intimidating for her to get on a big toilet in a public restroom and she didn't really have the ability to hold it very long yet.

catcam- that was my point actually- it does sound silly. But in our particular situation/setup, it's a lifesaver. Since our baby doesn't have her own room, we have to know if she's asleep before we walk by.

HelloChloe - Katie did write to us in her email that of course you'd have to check with your school, though besides the gum, tissues and pencils seem pretty harmless?

I purchased Amy Butler fabric crib sheets from this seller:

It looks like she doesn't have crib sheets up anymore, but you might want to convo her about it. My sheets have held up perfectly to many months of washings and I'm very happy with the quality.

I think it really depends on the individual seller you choose so look at feedback, and even ask the seller herself if you're worried.

laura in la- i agree actually- it is one-sided and abusive- and i think that's the whole point of the larger truth the story tries to tell (boy loses childhood innocence and flourishing relationship to worldly cares, greed, etc.)...which is a great lesson for adults but maybe a bit weighty for little ones!

molly h- i definitely do- but it's not like you're eating a bag or serving them up for snacks everyday- they're just making the teeth (though I'm sure a couple will wound up being eaten in the process)
