I found a toy racecar in my box of Cheerios this morning! I’ve been eating them for about a week and today the box got empty enough for me to notice something brightly colored at the bottom. I took a closer look and sure enough, free toy! It’s pretty sweet, it has no trouble at all racing the entire length of our worktable and it drives pretty straight too. I haven’t tried it on any jumps yet, but with all the three ring binders around here I’m sure I can put something together. I’m feeling a little bit tempted to listen to the voice on the back of the cereal box shouting ‘COLLECT ALL FIVE!!!!’



I also think this might be a sign that I should buy a new car…

I found these awesome stuffed toys and I really want to get some for my 16 month old Niece. They come in sets, ranging from common maladies (Bad Breath, Kissing Disease, Athlete’s Foot, etc.) to Calamaties like Black Death, Flesh Eating Bacteria and Mad Cow Disease. My Sister says that my Niece already has more than enough stuffed animals (and she’s right), but these are so much cooler than just stuffed animals!


My favorites are E Coli and Salmonella:


If you want to see all of the collections, the site is, of course,

(maybe I can just get my Niece the Liquid Soap Dispenser…)
