It's never the toy - but rather the proverbial box that is more fascinating for the kid (or cat, or dog or ferret..) to play with.
While the grandparents tend to keep my kid well stocked with books and toys and other age-appropriate gifts, I just had to share the current toy d'jour that simply cannot be put down.
Higher Standards Leather Care.
Yup. Not only does it keep my strap goods soft and gleaming and lovely - it also keeps my kiddo occupied for extended periods of time.
The round container, and rounded lid are easy to grip and apparently fun to hold/roll/drop.
The lettering is easy to read and apparently very entertaining to identify
|"H!... S!.. WOW!!!!"|
But the most appealing part is obviously the smell.
I'm am chased around the house by a small toddler demanding "smell dat! Smell dat!" until I relent and handover my favorite leather cleaner which she promptly sits and whiffs endlessly.
I'm assuming there's nothing wrong with that (though we may be setting ourselves up for trouble down the road).
On my last re-order I snagged a couple of the small containers which I have totally relinquished to the toy bin.
Now I just have to teach her how to use the stuff so I can really put her interest to work...
