I think we’re at a really fun stage in the Bear household right now. Both cubs are very enthusiastic when it comes to learning things – in Patrick’s case, he’s actually listening and trying to mimic my actions to the best of his ability then improving on my meager attempts at creative play. In Olivia’s case she’s more intent on destruction, much to the dismay of Patrick, and no amount of gentle redirecting can get her to alter from her decided path. Patrick tries to build while Olivia tries to effectively disassemble. I’m sure you can imagine the wonderful cacophony of noise at my household during those times.
Which is why I’m glad I stumbled across these blocks recently at the Target One Spot. Seriously, guys, I’m in love.
They come in packs of 18 and I’m still kicking myself for only buying two packs because they are fantastic. I love that I can give each kid a pile of them at opposite ends of the table and they’ll stay like that, mostly content for at least two point five seconds. Long enough for me to put my cold cup of coffee in the microwave and push the appropriate buttons. What makes them so wonderful? Well I’m glad you asked!
