Thrifty Thursday: Fisher Price Peek a Blocks


My step-daughter is pregnant with her first baby, due in August, and I have been eyeing baby toys! (Jim is over-the-moon happy.)

I have long thought the Fisher Price Peek a Blocks were neat, but they are also expensive (about $15 for 6 of them).

However, the local St. Vincent dePaul often has some in bags of small toys that they sell for $1 each. I recently found 8 of them for about 20 cents each!


If you haven't seen these, each block as a visual or textural element to it. Some make noise, others have ribbons attached. The one in the middle of the photo above is full of sand.


I plan to keep an eye open to find more, so I can present a nice selection of them to the mom-to-be!
