Color & Light

Graham and Parker have had a lot of fun lately with exploring color and light. We have a few toys  that the sunlight reflects color through the toys on the floor in the afternoon bewteen 2-4 pm!  too cool! I realized that I used to have an amazon store and I left it just sit dormant for about 8 years.  So I re-did the store and added all of the toys we have had or have now that I feel are the best toys for development and educational purposes.
