Get that thing that you have to match the shape in order to put it in the container. Did that make sense?

It made sense to me Libby There are so many of things that are catered to motor skills like that Kate.....how about one of those dolls/pals that you dress & undress?

It doesn't hav much to do with building and putting things together but Little People sets are really good for toddlers. Zach has a few and loves them. We have a zoo train and car garage.

I'd love to be the ideal mother but I'm too busy raising my kids.

How about those wooden puzzles that have the handles on each piece? (Ex: Cats, dogs, elephants...)

I'm not sure if that's a great description.
Kyler has a bunch of those and he LOVES them.

How about Duplo Blocks? Maddie is a few months older but she loves them and he will grow into them. Also there are many sets for the peek a blocks and you can buy sets with just blocks. Does he have any riding toys?

We have the animal puzzles, and circle/square puzzles with BIG block handles so they are easy to pick up - I was amazed when DS did that the 1st time
