Meet the Sullivans: He's Been a Really Good Boy, Santa!

He's Been a Really Good Boy, Santa!

Owen's 2013 Christmas Wish List

Owen has been a really good boy this year, and so I know that Santa has already checked quite a few of these things off his Christmas Wish List, but I thought it would still be fun to share what he asked for.

While he sometimes enjoys an electronic toy or two, he seems to prefer toys that he can pretend, explore or do "work" with. I'm sure the most popular gift on Christmas morning will be the 100 Piece Wooden Train Set, complete with buildings, trees and street signs. I'm excited about it since we already play with the smaller set we have all the time, and combined with this set we will have many more options to get creative with.

I'm also really excited for him to open the Thinkfun Roll and Play Board Game! A little about the game: Simply toss the big plush cube and identify which colored side faces up. Choose a matching color card and perform the simple activity shown, such as “Make a happy face”, “Moo like a cow” or “Find something blue”. I love that it's a board game Owen and I can play in so many different ways!

The other toys are all pretty self-explanatory...

We thought he'd love piecing together Mr. Potato Head, although only time will tell. The backpack will be great for his time spent at the gym's child care or when he decides he wants to bring allthecars!!! with us to the grocery store. The book B is for Buldozer is one of a few books we'll be adding to his library this Christmas. The Shape & Mold set and Kitchen Set are so we can do some pretend baking / cooking. And the rain boots are pretty obvious... they're for splashing around in the puddles!

Anything neat you've seen or given your kids or family?

I think these are really cool, but I'm not sure we have room for one. Looks like it would be a fun gift to give someone else's kids for Christmas!

Love the Mr. Potato Head, hadn't thought about that, but what a great toy. Might add that to A's list! All great picks, I bet he loves the train set!

Rain boots are essential here! And I think our family has read "B Is for Bulldozer" more than any other book we own! Love it!
