I have been looking for things for my daughter to do this summer and these look like lots of fun. Thanks for the idea!

Told her I had a second jar for her if she needed it. Brought them to a pool party and they were a hit! All the girls loved them (8, 11 and 13) and even the 10 year old boy! Needless to say, the 2nd jar was claimed later that afternoon!

Off to Target to pick up more! :)

I guess I must be totally old school because I was really sad and upset when the “Parents” brand of toys changed to the “B.” brand. I personally think the colors are pretty horrible. We bought my daughter the Parents pop beads for Christmas and they are SOOOO much cuter that these B. Pop Arty beads. Really does my 4 year old daughter want to make things out of black and puke green beads?? But I am a sucker and have bought the new ones for two friends’ birthdays since then because they are still a great toy and the kids spend hours playing with them, even if they are not as cute as they could be. Also the older version had fewer color combinations which was actually better because it was easier to make really cool patterns. Here is a link to the old ones still available on amazon but probably not for long and for quite a bit more money. http://www.amazon.com/Parents-PM9212E-Pop-Beads-Snap/dp/B000UEJ8XG/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=toys-and-games&qid=1275101854&sr=8-1

We’ve gotten hours and hours of fun out of them, not only making jewelry (that I”ve actually worn to parties) but, we also make “little guys” and have long drawn out adventures. Nice find…!

They look so well-made and kid-friendly. I also love those wonderful photos of your kids and baby June. I too love technology and I am constantly amazed at what is coming down for us to try. I only started using computers after I graduated from college, we just didn’t have them, and I am so excited because I get my new I-Pad next week! Wow, how times have changed……and I am loving it!!

Whacky Ball from Target (a ball ramp that you can hit balls down) for his first birthday and everyone LOVES playing with it (from the 1-year old to my 3-yr old and her friends, to even our visiting parent friends).

The packaging caught my eye and then I was sold on the cool design. I bought my son a set of 4 cars for his first birthday. Can’t wait to break them out next month!

You probably don’t know this – Grandma Groberg used to keep a stash of pop-beads in her purse and we would get to play with them if we were extra good during church and other meetings. They were so fun to play with that I remember trying extra hard to be good. My mom has since found some pop-beads and now they are a special reward for my kids. I just love classic toys!

We just bought the squishy block set b/c we had a similar set with just numbers from child #1 and I figured child #3 could use an upgrade/clean set :) The bonus is that all three kids LOVE, LOVE playing with them. Presently, they are in the form of a fabulous stable and housing all our Schlech horses.
