Our Zoo

This is probably Harpers favorite toy.


We play with it several times a day. First thing in the morning, a little more before naptime, and again after nap. Sometimes we will sit and play with this one toy for a good half hour. That’s pretty good when you consider he’s only 17 months old.


He likes to put the animals on the slide and watch them go down into the “water” at the end. He likes to try to make them stand up on the very tippy top…and then knock them off. He loves to play peek-a-boo with each animal peering through the openings and he likes to mimic the sounds each of them make.


He also likes to “feed” his animals and even smacks his lips while feeding them their treats. He knows most of them by name and if I ask him to get me a specific animal, he can.


He’s also discovered that he likes to line all of them up on the ledge that separates our living and dining room. He puts them up there, and moves them around, and eventually knocks them all back off into the bucket.

My Helpful Second Grader

I am so proud of this little boy. He comes home every day from school, pulls out his homework and gets to work. I never have to ask him...
