Here at GeekDad we review a lot of products — books, toys, gadgets, software — and I know it’s impossible for most parents to actually afford all of the cool stuff that gets written up. Heck, most of us can’t afford it either, and we’re envious of the person who scored a review copy of a cool board game or awesome gizmo. (Disclosure: that person is probably me.) So while we love telling you about all the cool stuff that’s out there, I understand that as parents we all have limited budgets and we sometimes need help narrowing down our wishlists.
So to help you out, I’ve worked really hard to narrow down this list to five items that no kid should be without. All five should fit easily within any budget, and are appropriate for a wide age range so you get the most play out of each one. These are time-tested and kid-approved! And as a bonus, these five can be combined for extra-super-happy-fun-time.
What are the five? Check it out! http://www.wired.com/geekdad/2011/01/the-5-best-toys-of-all-time/all/1
jajaja, so true!!!!!! My son, as a tot had "stick":in the form of "log" that he could carry in by himself, for the wood stove. ah, the beauty of something that disappears and then shows up in a new form in the same place can't be beat! :-) He had "string" in the form of some yellow, and red, electric (speaker, i think) cords, with nifty little 'endy-things'; he had tube, for certain, and yes, lots and lots of dirt.
Box!!! Oh yes. Always in fashion. The empty box. The "refrigerator box" being every child's dream find.
But there's a sixth! Stone!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Stone made up the shield on which we lived. And it poked its head out in the shape of animals, small mountains, ogres, giants,river bones, and the old favorite, the (portable) pocket stone.
very enjoyable, Uny!
