Touch and Discover


Today Jack had a playdate with his wee pal Jake. He wore the Cos Raglan sleeve baseball tee. I love Cos for me, so it's no wonder Jack's wardrobe includes quite a few pieces from the kids range. 

Have you ever gone out of your way to find a certain toy from your childhood for your own little one? I have. One Christmas Santa brought me a Texas Instruments Touch and Discover. I loved it so much! My siblings and I had years of fun out of the thing. The 'touch screen' was simply ahead of its time. I had been on the lookout for a T&D on eBay, they're pretty rare now, but eventually someone listed one - in great condition with the original box and instructions no less! I won it for a mere 99p! Below Jack is enjoying learning about transportation (his favourite subject!). Who needs an iPad when you have one of these babies? Hopefully my little beauty will get as many years of joy from this as we did.

  2. Hi! Just today I was in my basement and came across my now-grown kids wooden blocks. I had thought they were long gone. Can't wait to clean them up and give them to my 11 month-old grandson to play with! Happy Holidays!
