Look at what we found!!!
If you want to know where we found them just email me privately and I’ll let you know. They are in good condition and we MADE R’s day. If you don’t know the story behind the eggs and our obsession, check out my post here: Kinder surprise chocolate eggs banned in the U.S.A.?
I didn’t let R eat the chocolate, but I was impressed that they were still quite egg-shaped when I got them.
Watch the video to see an almost 3 year old open a surprise egg like a chipmunk. You’ll see what I mean….
Now we finally have an incentive that might just work to keep R in his bed all night. If he makes it the whole night without coming to get us, he will get more eggs. Crossing my fingers it works…
In Part 1 of The Best Baby Registry Guide I shared all of the practical things a new mom might register for. The below list is all the fun stuff! This is not a comprehensive list but rather all of my favorite items.
Fun Play Time
Infant Swing: Fisher-Price Cradle n Swing, My Little Lamb ($148.89)
Playard: Summer Infant Pop ‘n Play Portable Playard ($79.99)
This playard is great if you’re not into playpens but sometimes need something that can act as a playpen. We use this when we’re in places where we need the kids to stay in one place. It literally pops open and closed and is so easy.
Activity mat: Skip Hop Treetop Friends Activity Gym ($74.99)
Jumper: Fisher-Price Rainforest Jumperoo ($86.88), Bright Starts Around We Go Activity Station, Doodle Bugs ($100)
