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!

I had forgotten about these since my nieces were young. Adore!

^That is actually a little frog.

Those are so cool. I've never seen them before. I bet Tiny would like them, too.

So cute! I've never seen those before but what a neat idea.

Ringo and Lucy both love to sneak out on the porch anytime they can (with sneak meaning that Jim opens the door for them).
