Again I will start with the books… except these are on DVD. All of your favorite Scholastic Storybook Classics have been adapted to a 16 disc DVD collection. This might be something even you can enjoy over and over while scholastic bring their bed time stories to the small screen with Where the Wild Things Are, Curious George, Corduroy and more. Run time is over 14 hours so if your are in the mood for a marathon get ready. Available on-line for $100.
Next up, I have been reading rave reviews about Pleo. This cute newly-hatched baby camarasaurus feels hunger, fatigue, the desire to explore and be nurtured. He can change his mind as often as you do. This robodino, will move and make sounds and is robust enough for the heartiest of playing. Check him out, coming in at $350. Photo courtesy of Notcot.
Finally, to celebrate the cold weather (not down here in Texas) and snow. The kiddos with have more fun than they can handle with the snowball maker and the snow block maker. For a total of $10 together, keep them outside and playing happily while you rest your feet by the warm fire with some cocco.
