A Toddler’s Cheap Thrill

I just don’t get it when parents spend a lot of moolah buying their toddler toys when their favorite playthings always seem to be things that cost a buck, or better yet, they’re free because it is a part of some common household item!

Ian’s new cheap thrill are stickers.  These stickers come in a book with thousands of small sticky goodies, and the entire book is $1 at Michael’s Art Store.

Here is Ian one morning this week.  (You can tell it’s the morning because he is still wearing his monkey jammies!)



The nice thing about stickers, other than how they don’t cost a lot, is that they are easily transportable.

Throw a sheet in your diaper bag, the car, your purse, and voila!  You’ll always be ready to entertain toddler (at least for a couple minutes, right?!!)

My next blog post will be about where all these little stickers end up… all over the house!  Oh boy!

    ok, cheap toy yes, but those damn things get EVERYWHERE. The inside of my shirts, my socks, my laptops. And there’s never just one. All those that are stuck on Ian’s hands find there way somewhere into my stuff. I think they should be taken off the market (either that or make it a bit stickier so they actually stay in one place and not fall down everywhere) $1 for 30 minutes of clean up. How does that make sense?!?!

  2. They are a pain to clean up because they’re so small. But since they’re not very sticky, it’s just like picking up lint or any ol’ scrap of paper. We don’t have to peel it off anything. I think it’d be worse if they made those things with super duper sticky glue! Eek. That would be a disaster! Remember Kitty’s tail?!!
