Portland_Toys_sneaky_snacky_squirrel

Help the squirrel collect his acorns for his winter stock pile!  Great for building color matching and counting skills.  Plus, you get to work on your fine motor skills by using the "squirrel  tweezers" to grab the acorns.  Cute!

Toys_in_Portland_tranquil_turtle

The tranquil turtle projects soothing ocean-like wave patterns on the ceiling while playing (optional) ocean sounds.  So peaceful.  Great alternative to a standard nightlight.  Includes timer settings.  We want one for our grown-up rooms!

Toys_in_Portland_anteater_bug_vac

Use this friendly anteater to suck up bugs into it’s detachable-belly observation chamber!  Once you’ve collected some bugs, remove the tummy to get a close-up look and let the bugs back out into the wild.  So cool!  Anteaters are awesome!

Which are your favorite nominees?

Have a tip top day!
