just thought this would be a fun topic to compare and contrast.

list your kid's age and what they like to play with or are interested in.

BabyPunk-just turned 2 recently

LOVES (ie is obsessed with) snakes (ugh), cars with wings (ie import race cars, not nascar, thanks to my husband)
i found this bag of plastic animals at the consignment store (which is where the evil plastic snakes came from) and she loves playing with those too.

she likes the idea of blocks but mainly we build stuff and then she takes the plastic animals and makes them go in and out of whatever we built.

she is literally ALWAYS clutching a plastic snake and a car. you cant pry them out of her hands. i call the snake her secuirty snake.

she has several stuffed animals she loves, mainly a small bear, a guinea pig, and a tasmanian tiger but they seem to have been semi tossed aside for the snakes

she likes bubbles and she likes me to draw chalk snakes and guinea pigs on our driveway.
she seems to love all sea creatures. mainly whales. if i want to get her dressed without a fight i have to go and find one of her many whale shirts. she likes fish and turtles too and recently dolphins after we got a dolphin book at the library. i dont think she has figured out what a shark is yet because she has called them both whales and dolphins.

she likes running down the hall and flopping on pillows.
she has a pull toy that is a hippo that she loves and drags everywhere. we bought it for another kid's first birthday and she commandeered it when i was wrapping his presents. oops

she DOES NOT like birds. she seems fine with the outside kind but wont play with a toy that is a bird. there were a few birds in the plastic animal bag and she refuses to touch them. my parents got her this cool tree stump with woodland creature stuffed animals sticking out of it and she hates the bird.

strange little kid.

she's not much for arts and crafts which super bums me out but i think it's mainly her sensory issues right now.

being tossed or held upside down
banging on anything
chasing cats
being chased
looking at books about cats
emptying drawers, boxes, and cabinets
unstacking blocks
baths
riding facing forward (carts, wraps, etc)

hates:
swimming pools (too many people, I think)
riding facing backwards

These are really funny.

Mandycoot- Sven and Music Together is Malka and all classes. Then she says stuff like "see what I learned in gymnastics!" What? You haven't gone into your gymnastics class in four months kid.
