SS is still loving her Bristle Blocks and is building more complicated things. Of course cars, helicopters, space ships, bikes, well any mode of transport are her favorites. I have always been a fan of non battery operated toys. There is nothing more creative than the imagination of a child. It is more important now in our electronic driven world. We are as guilty as anyone and recognize this. SS is not going to learn to write cursive in school like we did. Why bother, kids text and type on computers. Talk about feeling old. SS is not going to know what a floppy disk is, like her brother knew at her age. Does anyone use those anymore?
