And so enters the Thomas & Friends Trains and Cranes Super Tower, a self propelled train that climbs up and down a tower, with lots of play options for younger kids!

Everyone loves Hot Wheels. How can you not?

Playmobil 1.2.3 Aqua the Perfect Gift for those Young Kids

Playmobil has always been a popular toy in the Roffel household, and my kids have gone through phases. There was the city phase, where they couldn't get enough of firefighters, doctors, construction workers and more. Then they moved onto the pirate phase, and I was constantly tiptoeing around pirate swords and treasure chests littered across my basement floor. With all of these toys, however, there has been on disconnect - my three year old. While the figures themselves are easy enough to play with, he cannot enjoy the finer pieces included in these sets ...
