Default Toys, Toys, Toys

I ordered toys this week and 2 of the boxes are coming today. Yay! I love new toys. My own kids are really excited. They are 7, 9 and 11 Hopefully my 2yr old and 3 yr old dck's will be just as excited.

Here are the toys:

There are 45 blocks in a set. The play tent is huge. I'm sure all the kids will love it. The water table should come tomorrow although today would have been a nice day for it. We played inside this afternoon because of the heat. Had a nice time at the park this morning.

That is good to know. I think it will be great for my kids. I think I may try to keep my own kids away from that one

I'd love to know how those blocks hold up. My kids are all pretty young and I'm afraid they will be stepping on them and they will be ruined quickly.

I've had them before and they held up well. In fact, the first set I bought when my kids were little and I had my first daycare, were from a garage sale. They were great!

Let me know how you like the water table. My one problem with a water table like that is its so little to me. Not very tall and only like one or two kids can seem to use it a once. It also doesn't seem to hold alof of water.

I have been using my turtle sandbox for a water table and its been such a huge, huge it. It holds tons of water and all my kiddo's can use it at once. I put it up on a table and its the perfect heighth.

I have a water table like that too (mine is a bluegreen color) and its the best, the only problem I have is that the plugs leak, so I do need to order new plugs but I've had it for years and its in great shape

I have those blocks and they hold up great, I love them and its one of the best purchases that I've made

I have tents like that, they collapse so easily (they just fold) and I tuck it behind the door. I've had mine for over 10 yrs and I'm starting to notice they need to be replaced. My own children (who are the same age as yours) love them so much, heck they play with all the toys you purchased, just the other day they built a chair to sit in with the blocks, it was so funny.

I only have 2 dck's so it shouldn't be a problem unless of course my own kids are being toy hogs. I wanted something I could have inside and out so I thought this would work well.
