blocks

My DD got a nice set of wooden square alphabet/number blocks at 1 (you know, with a letter or number or picture on each side of the cube). We still have them and she is 6 and brother is 3.

toys

We got a microscooter and helmet at age 2 that the kids liked if you have a flat stretch for riding. Cozy Coupe was very popular too. And the covered sandbox!

I love Lara Bars--no refined sugar. Most have no added sugar as the sweetness comes from dates. I like the lemon ones a lot, but also enjoy the blueberry ones, peanut butter ones and for a little...
