As a first time mom, I have no idea what to get my son for his first Christmas. I’ve spent hours walking up and down the aisles at Babies R Us and Target and been lost in the black hole that is Amazon.com. Though I don’t pretend to know what is cool and hip for kids these days, I am able to look back on all the things I loved growing up, and I’m happy to say that some of our old-timey favorites have hit the stores again! Baby Sea Otter has a bit longer until he's more focused on what the present is rather than the fun of pulling the wrapping paper off of a box, but I've had to snatch up a few of these classics for later holidays just in case they slip away again.
1. Fisher Price See N Say – I’m sure that most of us learned the noises that animals make by playing with the See N Say. What animal will it land on? What noise will that animal make? Why is it so much fun to pull the string and watch the arrow turn? These are all questions that our kids can now also ask.
2. Fisher Price Record Player – As an 80s child, I can recall almost all of my tunes being played via record player. I have not lost my sense of nostalgia, and still proudly play many albums on vinyl. I hope that this teaches Baby Sea Otter how cool these old-timey devices can be.
