A Remote Controlled Thomas with Real Steam!

Running Around with Shake n Go Thomas !

I'm sure they just know that mothers love to order things online or that babies get gifts sent to them. My mailman is no different.

We love the Playskool Sesame Street Hide ‘n Seek Pals Playset!


I noticed that whenever we visited the grandparents, my 16 month old daughter was obsessed with opening and shutting their glasses cases. Open shut open shut open shut. It seemed so fascinating that I told my mom that I wanted to get her some kind of open and shut toy. On a trip to Toys R Us, we came across the Playskool Sesame Street Hide 'n Seek Pals playset. You know you've … [Read more...]
