Hi guys! We've picked out our favorite in-stock quarantine items this week. We hope this helps you find something fresh and fun to occupy your littles at home. Get your order shipped to you, or - if you're local - use our curbside pickup option.

Reminder, you have TWO ways to let us know that you will be doing a curbside pickup:

1. Select "Pick Up" instead of "Ship" at checkout. This has been a little buggy, hence option two.

2. Use code INSTOREPICKUP. 

Either way is great with us. You'll receive an email when your order is ready  (usually less than 24 hours). Curbside pickup is Monday through Saturday, 10-11AM. Give us a call when you get here. Pop your trunk and we'll place your order in your car. 

Okay, let's talk toys! Here are our top picks for the week.

1. Mad Mattr + Dino Toob = instant sensory bin

In case you haven't heard us say it already, Mad Mattr is the best. It holds it shape when squished. It stretches when pulled apart. It feels super cool. And it never dries out! Add some little dinos and leftover Easter eggs and... voila! You'll have a hatching dinosaur sensory bin.

2. SmartMax

We love, love SmartMax for magnetic building! Especially if you have kids of different ages, including toddlers. Big kids can have fun building, and little kids can participate safely without getting frustrated due to the large, sturdy pieces. Add a set of the animals for extra mix-and-match fun!

 

3. Djeco fine motor fun: Step by Step for older kiddos and Paint with Water for younger kiddos

Mix up arts and crafts time! These sets are great for practicing fine motor skills.

We like the Step by Step sets for kids ages 3 years - 7 years. Use the included write and wipe board, marker, and instructional cards to learn how to draw!

For 18 months - 3 years, we are fans of the Paint with Water sets. "Paint" using the refillable water pen. Watch the brightly colored pictures appear with water and disappear after drying. Repeat!

4. Way to Play

Do you have a billion little cars in your house? Just us?? Add Way to Play flexible rubber roads to give your kiddos a new way to use toys they already have.

These roads can be used indoors or outdoors - they can even get wet! Pull out a bucket and sponge to set up an outdoor carwash. Or, pair with blocks and/or train sets, like we did at THL a few months back. 

 

That's what we're loving this week! How are you guys keeping busy at home? Miss seeing you!

Love,

Caitlin & Suzanne
