Over the past many months I've share with you our all-time favorite toys. These aren't sales pitches, they are (as always) my absolutely from-the-heart, honest opinions after 22+ years of mothering and 22+ years of buying toys — some that were hits and some that were a waste of money and space! Here's a consolidated list of our favorite toys.
As I write this, two of my kids are upstairs playing with the train and action figures I wrote about. And that is pretty much the status in our home whenever the kids are awake. Just add to the list below a box of old dress-ups and playhouse stuff, a handful of toy weapons (I can hear the light sabers going, too), and a good dose of imagination, and you've got an amazing playroom setup.
Here is a one-stop post for the best toys for endless hours of fun and creativity and the biggest bang for your toy buck.
