I have a 2 year old and the only thing she actually plays with that fits this criteria are a set of wooden fruits/veggies by Melissa and Doug that Velcro together so dc can practice "chopping" with the big wooden knife it comes with. Are toy knives okay? In the context of pretend cooking? Lol [ Reply | More ]

I know the guy who makes the scents for Yankee Candle (and lots of other products, actually). He told me that the new scents are based on the color first - they tell him "we need a light blue candle, since light blue is a color that sells well. What scents can you do that match up with light blue?" [ Reply | More ]

All sorts of stuff. Detergent, soap, deodorant, things like that. It's kind of fascinating, but you definitely do associate a product's scent with its effectiveness. If detergent doesn't smell like soap you will think it doesn't get your clothes clean. [ Reply | More ]

In my house, I like to have the inanimate objects "write letters" to the inhabitants. Hope this doesn't out me. For example, the soap writes a letter (then attached) telling people he is sad when he doesn't get used. Toothpaste says please squeeze me from the bottom. A letter from your toilet could do wonders without pointing fingers. It would probably be assumed that 5 yo was the offender. [ Reply | More ]
