Expensive Toys

My mother has to buy a present for her great-grandson, my great-nephew, who is two. I'd been playing with Odi's kids earlier and suggested she give him an empty Kleenex box. The truth is that up to a certain age kids really aren't impressed by toys that come with batteries. Something like the Kleenex box will do just as well. Look, you can put things in it and take them out again,  you can wear it as a hat, you can rip it up...

Remember Eeyore with his burst balloons and empty hunney jar?

Another great game we were playing yesterday afternoon was "throw the ball into the waste paper basket".
