Well then. . .

I wanted to buy something for my existing great nephew, because the new one will have lots o’ loot (that’s a technical term there) and it seems like his whole world is going to fall a little bit apart when this baby arrives.

I had thought a play kitchen, but my nephew wasn’t keen on his son having a play kitchen and there were some issues with space, and could I please get my nephew a workbench instead. (lest you think this was rude, I had asked what he might want)

I went on to Amazon to find something (this sort of thing will not fit into a convertible) and I couldn’t find a wooden workbench for a 2 year old. Everything was either plastic or for a much older child.

So, I did the next best thing. I found him a sort of work bench toy, with lovely coloured wooden pegs to put in it.

And a hammer.

To put the pegs in.

Grin. . .

    I am grinning too because we had a hammer toy like that and now I need to replace the windowsill in the playroom. Somehow it got all banged up.

    My kids love their toy kitchen. They play with it all of the time. My husband has no issue with them playing with it.

    Next to their toy kitchen they do have a plastic toy workbench. They started with this one by Step2 http://www.step2.com/p/real-projects-Workshop and the loved it. We got a (larger) Little Tikes one (that is no longer made, that also has an ‘engine’ with gears you can take apart and put together along with the tools), so we passed on the Step2. It is very loved in its new home as well (another house with 2 little boys, where it also resides next to a toy kitchen). I’m all for wooden, but I have not found a wooden toy workbench, and my kids play with this one for hours (I bet if you look for it on Pinetrest, you could find how to make a wooden tool bench, but that sounds like too much work and time away from the baby).

    It never has to be expensive or fancy to be exactly the right thing.
