Bits & Bobs We ♥: The Strange & Curious Kid Objects

by Emily on September 5, 2011

Have you ever had the feeling that your child can sniff out the most curious of objects to take an interest in?  Or just the specific item that you’d like them NOT to play with?  Obviously it’s in their child-radar to pick up on these things but I have just found it amazing the “toys” that Pip has taken to over the last year of more independence.

Here’s one example below:  an old, hand painted but severely chipped, piece of garden art (if you can call it that) that Pip spotted behind our garage a year ago when we bought the house.  It was left from the elderly couple that owned the place since it was built in the 40’s.  And boy did they leave a collection:  all 7 dwarfs, 3-4 frogs, 1 raccoon, several mushrooms and 1 really strange leprechaun!  In this photo, Pip saw my camera and set the scene, placing Raccoon on the chair and then insisted on a cheese moment!

 

This raccoon gets toted all over our yard and in some instances it’s demanded by my wee one that we take it for rides in the car! NO!  Raccoon or Coon as we call it, is decently heavy, but Pip bends over, looks eye to eye, confirms over a small conversation with Coon that it’s up for some adventure and then will haul it to her playhouse, to her chairs in the yard, into her wading pool, to her swing, pushes it for rides on her bike, down our stairs to the vegetable garden to “eat” and then lets Coon rest in the garden to go ‘night-night!

I’ll tell you that we haven’t  purchased, been gifted or found another toy quite like Coon that she has played so much with in our yard!  Oh the imagination of a toddler….just the very bits & bobs that I ♥ about the journey of parenthood and toddler-times!

Do you have a story of a strange & curious object that a child near you has loved?

Happy Labor Day!  Can you believe it’s September already?

 

 

 

PS- You don’t mind if I do an EXTRA special shout out to Design Mom for showcasing Andrea’s beautiful birthday extravaganza for Mo & his too cute for words chairs do ya?  Umm…hello…yes you read that right…. Design Mom!  Andrea is a rock star!

Oh, that is my little (growing too fast) GDaughter. “Coon” is a wonderful, quirky, pal she seems so attached to. That is a great picture of her with her friend.

Apple now has Rhapsody as an app, which is a great start, but it is currently hampered by the inability to store locally on your iPod, and has a dismal 64kbps bit rate. If this changes, then it will somewhat negate this advantage for the Zune, but the 10 songs per month will still be a big plus in Zune Pass’ favor.

I’ll gear this review to 2 types of people: current Zune owners who are considering an upgrade, and people trying to decide between a Zune and an iPod. (There are other players worth considering out there, like the Sony Walkman X, but I hope this gives you enough info to make an informed decision of the Zune vs players other than the iPod line as well.)

Between me and my husband we’ve owned more MP3 players over the years than I can count, including Sansas, iRivers, iPods (classic & touch), the Ibiza Rhapsody, etc. But, the last few years I’ve settled down to one line of players. Why? Because I was happy to discover how well-designed and fun to use the underappreciated (and widely mocked) Zunes are.

For example for any research associated with Diabetes Drug, simply a native translator with extensive experience of Medical translation can do
this. Harrisco But which are the criteria for high quality translation company.
Carving your own personal niche in the translation industry will aid you to succeed in a
very highly competitive world. Harrisco Books translation, greatly like movies translation, is incredibly important in order to the
average person to become able to read books written in foreign languages.

It may seem a bit confusing, but certified translations need not come from certified translators.
