I saw the other post for toys from 6-18 months, my group are coming out of that age group except for one new baby and they are getting a little bored. I have balls, kitchen stuff, little people, a playhouse, slide, sandbox, mega blocks, puzzles, fake and old cell phones, cars, but I'm missing some sensory type toys. Any suggestions that don't make a mess? I'm fine with making a mess in the summer, but its so hard to make a mess right now that I just had a new baby start and most of them are more more towards the 18 month mark so they don't know how to control themselves.

If you can be specific of favorite toys, like include a link that would be even better.

Thank you so much!
