I never went crazy buying toys for our daughters. There are people whose houses overflow with "junk-toys". I prefer few toys with high quality.
And after all- they like to play with the most with simple things.
Last week we collected a lot of pine cones. Helen- the younger daughter (10 months) is busy taking them into her mounth or taking them all out of the pot and waiting for us to put them back. The older one (Neomi, 3 years old) is throwing them as high as she can or is trying to throw them from a distance into a bucket. She also uses them as trees when playing with her cubes. So many ways to use them and I am sure they will discover more.
I will post from time to time some more "simple toys".
