Toys of the Non Traditional Variety

If you have a child you know they tend to accumulate toys monthly.  Whether it's from a holiday gift or a birthday gift or just because they were really good while at the grocery store, they just end up with so many toys.  I remember when I was pregnant thinking, I'm only getting her a few toys at each different age group which is developed to help them grow at that age.  However, like many things you say before having a child, that philosophy went out the window rather quickly.  Toys are so fun to buy because you see your child's reaction so it's hard to pass them up.  What I didn't plan for was the "toys" that weren't really intended to be toys.  Take this for example.

This is a plastic hippo watering tool for your garden.  I think I picked this up for Addie at Joann's on clearance for maybe $2.  She loves using it while in the water,  but this actually gets most use out of carrying all of Addie's rocks.  You see, my sweet girl likes collecting rocks everywhere she goes.

Another random favorite is this one.

Seriously!  I helmet that she likes to walk around with.  This was from our neighbors whose kids are a little older and no longer needed this toddler sized helmet.  What non traditional items does your little one enjoy playing with?  


PS.  Don't forget the amazing INKtastic giveaway!


  1. The helmet is too funny! My son loves to put stuff on his head!

  2. Haha! My toddler son loves his bike helmet, too. He's also a bit obsessed with a Rubbermaid bin with just enough popcorn kernels to cover the bottom. We have gotten months of entertainment out of it, who knew?
