K'Nex Cookie

"Sunny days, sweeping the clouds away. . . " You know the song. You know the show. You know you are wondering what the gang on Sesame Street has been up to.

Maddie loved Sesame Street when she was younger. For almost the entire hour, she would sing, say her letters and numbers, laugh with Elmo and Cookie and basically give me time to get stuff done. Or take a nap.

I thought she had outgrown the show. Until I got one of these in the mail. A Sesame Street K'NEX- Cookie Monster.

We opened the package and Maddie played with it for about an hour. Making Cookie have short legs, long arms, big belly, small belly, with a head, without a head. She made up stories about what Cookie was about to do and where he wanted to go next.

It was fun listening to and watching her. I loved the fact that it was an educational toy and inspired her imagination. I really, really loved that it comes in a package that keeps all of the pieces stored away.

So, remember that the holidays are coming quicker than we realise. And they come in other characters, not just Cookie. So, check it out.

Saw you over at From the Land of Monkeys and Princesses and thought I'd stop by. I love the name of your blog.

Isn't it funny how kids don't ever really outgrow toys they loved when they were little--even if they act that way around their friends. My boys were totally into Thomas the Tank (as is evidenced by today's post). They tell everyone they don't like them, but when asked what they want for a birthday or Christmas, it is always this or that train, tracks, or some $79 Thomas thing (because they are going for the cheap gift, you know). They play with them for hours, use their creativity, and have fun. What's not to love about that?

Funny, huh!

Great post. Glad I stopped by!
