Fun for 50 Cents

He spent his Sunday morning completely enthralled in his newest toy...


A set of cheapo Tinker Toys...

Purchased for two quarters...

Whilst yardsaling on Saturday...

He really wanted a deflated UK basketball.  Which I bought (also for 50 cents). 

But, since Mama knows best, and I insisted we buy these too, I would say that it was a win-win for all involved :)

Isn't it fabulous when they are entertained for longer than five minutes? And educational to boot!! Definitely a win win situation!

Oh, this brings back memories for me. My son, who is 21, loved Tinker Toys. I think they are a great educational tool, too.

If he liked these then Santa should look into bringing a set of Crazy Forts. They've been a favorite in our house since my little man was 3.5.

That is awesome! My daughter is the same age as Beckam. They are just getting to the age when they can really play alone for a period of time. So sweet!

I was just at a Math in Focus training, and our speaker said these were great for teaching number bonds. (Whole branched off into part/part. Just thought I'd share.
