Dad tip #106: Amazon's "Birth to 24 months" toy store

I'm wicked tired tonight. If you've been following this blog, then you know this is typically when I start spouting all kinds of propaganda (like my deal on Amazon Prime).

Tonight's theme is Amazon's "Birth to 24 months" toy store. It's fun to browse what toys your baby can play with. I only wish that they'd break up the "Birth to 24 months" section into even smaller subdivisions. Our kid is only 8-months-old, so it'd be really handy to narrow the search even further. But, it is kind of cool to take a peek at all the stuff that he'll be able to play with soon.

Among the age-appropriate things on the front page of the store was Jacques the Peacock by Lamaze. It's a ridiculously cute toy that has (according to the description): a soft velour body, busy wings with multiple textures and crinkles, a peek-a-boo mirror, and a squeaker. Our kid has TONS of toys like this, but I'm still tempted to buy one.

Among the less age-appropriate and possibly even questionable results was a "Dark Knight" Joker Bobblehead. Even if it's technically safe for kids 12 months and up, it's still kind of creepy. Do you really want to walk into your kid's room every day and see a miniature statue of Heath Ledger every day?

The last thing I'm going to post here tonight is just a reminder for myself to eventually go back and eventually buy the Baby Farm Friends Bowling by International Playthings. THAT is also WICKED cute.
