TOP 10 Toys for the 1st Year

Luke has passed his one year milestone and I thought I would share Luke's top 10 toys from the past year.  My benchmark was this and this alone: These are toys Luke actually played with on his own and enjoyed time after time for more than a few seconds.

To preface this post, Kevin and I are not big 'stuff people', so Luke doesn't have a playroom full of goodies.  He has a small pile of toys next to our couch in the living room in baskets and buckets that I rotate in and out.  When toys are out, they are out of sight and in a closet.  I think this keeps things fresh and let's Luke explore an 'old friend' all over again when it returns from the closet.  I rotate the books as well, but keep a few favorites out all the time.  Many of the toys you will see here are similar to Luke's favorites, but not the exact replica. Many of his toys are 'hand me downs' and no longer made, but I have included similar toys found on Amazon.  All of the prices listed are prices I found on Amazon.

Here we go...Luke's TOP 10 toys for the 1st year!
