my girlfriend maddie brought us the cutest gift when ryder arrived. she brought us this huge basket with treats for us all to enjoy.
she included cold brewed coffee, bagels and gourmet butter, kombucha, chocolate, crackers, books, flowers, spray hand sanitizer (my favorite!) and these small play creatures from a company called "toobs." you must know by now how excited i get over loose parts for our activity bins. i was not familiar with them but it didn't take long for me to become OBSESSED! she got us two different tubes of "toobs." one is a dinosaur themed one and the other is called "backyard birds." the birds are so pretty and have great detail and bowie was instantly attracted to them!
so of course i had to do a bit of research on this company and see where i can buy more! they are available through amazon and they go for about $12 a "toob." but i also found them available at michaels craft store for the same price...BUT you can use their 40% or 50% coupons on them, making them $6-$7 a "toob." they have so many awesome themes. so we added the "pets" toob today and we are already creating a small world with them!
