I’m going to call the Myland collection from Kid O the 21st century version of the beloved Little People from my childhood. They’re cute characters with fun vehicles, but the Myland toys feature lights and sounds that respond to various actions.
For example, the lights are activated when characters are placed in the car,
and the horse makes a galloping sound when it rocks back and forth!
I hope they continue to expand the Myland series! Can you imagine the dollhouse that could go with this?!
Hand-crafted in Los Angeles, the Paloma Teeter Totter comes to you ready to assemble and ready to rock! It’s a simple modern design that is sturdy and lends itself well to imaginative play.
The teeter totter comes in six fun colors and retails for $290.
There’s also a larger size teeter totter, aka “The Bigger One,” for $340. Right now you can save $50 with the promo code WCC!

It’s nearly official so…
It might not be the best year to introduce your tots to the political process, but if you’re ready to have a little fun with it, here’s the gift for your future politicians. If nothing else, it will be a great collectible keepsake one day.
My favorite is the Cupcake Set, and then the Tea Time Puzzle, Dump Truck Puzzle and Garden Puzzle are fun new additions. Three new vehicles with figures include the Dumper, Mixer and Scooper. For the bath you have the Rescue Boat and Helicopter and the Sport Boats. The block set comes in new colors and for the outdoors you have the Watering Can and the Dig & Discover Set.
We love Green Toys for being 100% recycled, made in the USA and being extremely durable.

Mula toys include Stacking Rings, Crane with Blocks, Shape Sorter, Bead Roller Coaster, Toddle Wagon/Walker, 24 Building Blocks with Wagon and Abacus. We had three of these in the old colors so I can attest to the awesomeness of the Mula toys, and now with this fresh, modern collection of colors, they’re even better! $7-$25
Today I want to talk a little bit about Lego Duplo, aka: the best reason to have a toddler. I love Lego’s Duplo line of bricks. Especially perfect for ages 2-5, these are by far my #1 my favorite toy. There are an infinite number of ways to play with Duplo– pretend play with the sets, stacking and attaching bricks, sorting the pieces etc… And they’re large enough to be safe and easy to pick up.
If I were you, I’d be buying these great new Lego Duplo sets today…
Around the World: This set has a little of everything. It includes 5 figures, all kinds of animals, a boat, a plane, clear bricks and even a camera.
Jungle: This set has an adult and baby elephant, an alligator, a propeller plane and a campfire.
Miles’ Stellosphere Hangar 10826 is unlike any other Duplo set. Disney Junior fans will love it with bricks in many shades of blue, a spaceship and even an ostrich.
We had a set similar to this Tow Truck 10814. All of the vehicle pieces are fun with the tools, engine, truck and little car. There’s a lot of play value in this set for just $20.
Tip for buying Lego: Always buy the most expensive set you can afford. One $100 set is much better than five $20 sets. This is still a lesson I’m working on with my boys who still need practice saving up their allowance!
You can never have too much Lego and these toys will last for generations. One of the saddest parts of my children growing up so far has been when they both finally outgrew Duplo and moved up to regular Lego bricks. We passed our bins of bricks to cousins, but I hope that someday they’ll come back around for our grandchildren. I’m serious!
