While I absolutely love Target and Amazon Prime (just ask my credit card, it gets a workout at both), lately I have been loving buying toys for Carter Jane at Ikea!
We live about 15 minutes away from the Swedish superstore, and a trip there makes a perfect middle of the day outing. We skip the whole showroom and go directly to the kids area. None of the toys make noise, they’re all simple and clean, and of course, inexpensive.
Carter Jane has loved the baby gym, the wooden stacking rings, and the play book just to name a few. I can’t wait until she’s toddling and I can get her this wooden walker! I love the simplicity of the toys, because it offers her (and me) a base to be more creative (without driving me crazy with high pitched noises). And if something happens to the toys (RIP Sophie that fell out of the stroller without me noticing last week), I don’t feel terrible, because I didn’t spend tons of money on them.
