When The Big Toys Go…

It has been interesting watching the change in they way my kids play.

Slowly the big toys are starting to vanish.

When I say “big toys” I mean the large trucks, the baby sized dolls and the large action figures. My kids have been passing them over for lego, hot wheels cars and shopkins.

The latest to join my daughters favourites?



I love watching her play with her toys.

I love eavesdropping on the conversations her Squinkies have with each other. I truly cannot get enough of it. She changes their hats, gives them different jobs, puts them in families. They get adopted, they go to school, they have birthday parties, they have arguments, they drive their children to piano lessons.  I could watch all day. It is jut my fave.

I hope it is your fave too.

  1. It’s great that your kids still play with “real” toys … with their own imaginations. I say this because I know that a lot of kids today depend on electronics. Kudos to you 🙂

  2. Legos and a spy kit. Although I’m pretty sure we’re at maximum capacity for legos, she thinks we can fit more. We don’t have any squinkies yet, but seeing as you can build things out of lego for shopkins, I don’t see why you couldn’t for a squinkie!

  3. They all want the coveted but impossible to find, Hatchimals. But they love Shopkins, Grossery Gang and all the other little toys.

  4. Would you believe I’ve never heard of these things? That’s what I get for getting rid of TV, I guess. 🙂 they’re tiny and have bits to lose – the girls’ll love them!

  5. We said goodbye to some dolls recently and hello to Lego friends and Littlest pet shop. This would just be perfect! She wants anything with animals and I already told her we couldn’t buy the zoo.

  6. well my oldest is autistic so she cannot tell me what she wants and my youngest is only 2. But I do know what they would love so I shop to their interests 🙂

  7. My little ones are getting a trampoline this Christmas but I have a 9 year old niece who would love the Squinkie do Drops Squinkieville Club House. Thank you and happy holidays.
