Babies and Their Toys

Peanut! Looka, looka! Your jungle gym! Brought to you by your friendly neighbourhood Papa-man!

It's got a elephant...a parrot...a monkey...a tiger...a zebra...a mirror...a

You likey?

(Wails in frustration until forcibly extricated and carried away)


  1. Haha LOL.. Has she not yet started asking for spoons and steel cups?

  2. WHAT is it with babies and tags! I bookmarked this link ages ago and am seriously thinking of getting one of these.


  3. I bet she'll be even more interested in the cardboard box this came packed in :P ...

    -- PR

  4. Timepass: Nooo...but I already feel a major headache coming on. Thanks.

    Mala: Don't bother. My cousin got her a 'Taggies' dog - very sweet, with tags all over its ears and tail, etc - but Peanut just kept playing with the wrapping paper it came in. I think spoons and steel cups will do just fine.

    PR: Yeah, exactly. It's always the wrapping.

  5. Isn't that typical of babies to zero in on the most mundane of things missing all the bells and whistles attached to the said thing! Cute, cute, cute!!!

  6. Awww... that picture is so very cute!

    (and I'm currently enjoying my boyfriend's tales of his school admirers annoying him and giving him missed calls, so no witticisms from me right now)

  7. Well, yeah! Didn't you know we actually buy these things for their tags? Everything else is just thrown in like dhaniya mirchi :D Start saving the cardboard boxes that stuff comes in and you might never need to buy Peanut a toy! S still begs us to save cardboard boxes for a few days so she can play with them. A friend gifted M a book of tags and I can't find it anywhere. AAAAAAARGHHHHHHHHHH!!

    Mala - if you live in the US, try TJ MAXX stores - you will find these toys for less than half price there. We checked the price of the taggie blanket at Babies R US the last time we went there and it was priced at friggin' 20 bucks!! At TJ MAXX I might find it for 9.99 or even 7.99 if lady luck smiles upon me.

    Y, sorry to hog your comment space.

  8. N: I don't KNOW what's typical of babies. I'm learning as I go along. No one tells me anything. Okay, no one tells me everything.

    Suki: Missed calls from admirers. Ah, to be young again.

    Cee Kay: Not at all, go right ahead. For you - anything. T J Maxx, huh?

  9. Oh That's so cute (and so typical, but you've had everyone say that to you already!)

    With my kids (they're 7 and 5 now) it wasn't even the boxes the toys came in - it was random boxes like biscuit boxes and milk cans that fascinated them!


  10. I guess we start early in life being dissatisfied with what we have and wanting what we can't! lol!

  11. Tags, spoons, cups, these are my favourite things!

    And why do parents parents spend money on the toys, the teddy bears!

  12. Looks like she's getting an early start on the terrible twos...

    Any luck with the solids. I am back, by the way so call any time if you want to come by and pick up the feeding spoons I talked about...
