Some toys have far longer shelf lives than others. One of the long-time favorites in our house is Kapla building blocks. Doodle loved playing with these pine blocks in her kindergarten enrichment class five years ago, so I invested in some. Five years later, she and her friends still love to create cool structures with them, and Tootle does too. Each block is an identically sized and shaped piece of pine, with dimensions in the proportions 1:3:15. The possibilities seem to be endless. Doodle and a friend recently created an exclusive hotel just for celebrities, complete with several buildings, walkways, and a swimming pool/diving board. Tootle likes to build towers with tall crosses on top. Kapla blocks are my secret weapon on weekends when Tootle wakes up too early, and I still want to sleep; they can keep her entertained for at least an hour. I see that Kapla now has some colored planks; maybe Santa will have to bring some this year.
