Only on DS can a thread about a train toy erupt into a mommy war *lol*
I have a toy-clutching 2 year old boy and we leaned a BIG lesson with this... He is absolutely obsessed with Little Einsteins and I managed to find a little Rocket toy hiding in the back corner of a Big Lots, coated in 6 year old dust. SCORE! DS took it everywhere and one day left it when he was out hitting, oh, about 75 stores with my shopaholic MIL. So this girl right here spent 5 hours in a strip mall, hitting every store looking for the darn thing. I found it but sheesh! So from now on I have a bucket of cheapo hot wheels cars that he can clutch whilst in public and we leave the LE goods at home!
