Don't you know it! He always gives him something train-related, although this Christmas, he got him a set of die-cast Cars cars.

Oh my, that golf toy was a big at my house for years--except it was never allowed in the house. It was strictly an outdoor toy.

I keep hiding it, he keeps finding it. And he was a late fall baby so we haven't yet had the weather for him to play with it outside.

Webbie - my kid just has the hammer gene. Every new thing he comes across needs to make contact with a wall. Ironically, my friend's two year old has the same golf club and he uses it as a vacuum cleaner.

My kids (Maya's 2 and Max is 6) love their musical instruments, especially the Little Tykes piano and the Little Lyon guitar. They've both asked for ukuleles for Christmas.

Chas' favorite toy is his Fischer Price Laugh and Learn Learning House. He got it on his first birthday and still plays with it a ton.

Anything he had bang on that makes noise. He loves his drums, and his v-tech rolling ball.

legos and trucks. that's for both the 4 year old and soon to be 2 year old. I keep reminding myself as I step on legos in the dark and in my barefeet that they really enjoy playing with them. They are each getting some playmobile truck sets from grandma for christmas.

Oh and the oldest is separately obsessed with cash registers so he's getting a wooden one for christmas while the youngest has quite the pitcher's arm. We're trying to dissuade him from that though LOL.

eta: madscientist - yeah that gene seems to be quite pervasive around here. And we made the genius move of getting a couple of wooden hammers which instantly get tested out on every surface. Thankfully a hunk of florist foam covered in burlap with a cheap bag of golf tees + said wooden hammer = happy kid and happy mom. (not my idea just stole it from another mom with a happy banger).
