A Couple Toys Worth Buying

This week at Works for Me Wednesday is the The Toys Worth Buying Edition .

I have a teenager, so we purchase mostly electrical gadgets and musical instruments these days. But over the years we went through many phases (Barney, Thomas the Train, Power Rangers, Giga Pets, Pokemon and Yu-Gi-Oh cards). Those toys were a lot of fun, and we even saved some in a keepsake box.

In addition to the phases, there are the classic time-tested toys too. Here are a few toys we enjoyed for years; The Rubik Cube, Lincoln Logs, Lego's, Twister, Mr. Potato Head, Monopoly, and the card game UNO.

Those were some of the phases and a few classics, but how about publishing a book and saving a some loose change! Below are two items I couldn't resist mentioning :)

IlluStory Make Your Own Story Kit
This kit allows kids to write and illustrate their own story. And once the story is finished, they can mail it in the prepaid envelope to be published. This is a great way to encourage children to write, and makes a nice keepsake to treasure for years!

Schylling Rubber Piggy Bank
This Piggy is adorable and durable too!! It's vinyl, so it's safe enough for kids to carry around without the fear of breaking it. This cute piggy bank is perfect for any age and a great way for kids to learn about saving money!
