Kids.Woot® : One Day, You’ll Understand™.

This is great pricing for a train table and 87 piece train set from KidKraft for $129.99.  If we didn’t already have a table, I would totally grab this deal. I really like the espresso finish and the storage drawer.

You can use the train table with toddlers, but you will have to pack away the elevated structures until your child is around 3 or 4 when they can play without knocking over the structures. This set is compatible with Brio, Thomas wooden, Imaginarium, Melissa & Doug, Plan, Chuggington, and Ikea (those tracks sometimes have a tight fit.) All the major brands.

I would suggest that if you are looking for extra tracks to avoid paying super expensive prices for name brand. You can get a lot of tracks that will satisfy any child’s elaborate design. I suggest something like Orbrium Tracks which is sourced from the same manufacturer that make the Thomas wooden tracks. This is a pretty good 100 piece set being sold at Amazon.

Happy track building!

Kids.Woot® : One Day, You’ll Understand™.

My son loves cars…as in he lives and breathes cars. Of course, I snatched up a pair of these remote control rice rockets. Two frequencies available in four different vehicles (1:16): Mazda RX8, Infinite G37, Mitsubishi Eclipse and a Chrysler ME412 (technically not a rice rocket) for only $9.99 today at

What is not to like about these when they come with spoilers, decals, spinners, and working lights and doors? There will be a whole lot of screaming excitement come Christmas morning at our house this year when M and P hold cars races around our house.

About the Toys”R”Us Differently-Abled Guide – Toys “R” Us.

The 2011 toy guide for special needs children has been just released. This is a great resource if you are shopping and need help finding appropriate toys that won’t frustrate children during their play. I really like how they arrange the guide so that you can shop by specific skills. I found the accompanying text with each featured toy helpful in describing exactly what skills each toy teaches and reinforces.

Kids.Woot® : One Day, You’ll Understand™.

We love Melissa and Doug toys at our house. They are very sturdy, well designed, and hold up well over time. This 3 pack bundle includes the upper/lower case alphabet wooden puzzle, the ABC stacking/nesting cubes and the upper/lower case alphabet stamp set.

Great pricing. As always, the woot deal is only until 10 pm PST or until they run out.
