Capturing a child’s imagination with wooden door magnets

Dinosaur magnets can allow children to exercise their imagination this holiday season.

If your looking for last-minute shopping items, let's face it, an electric heater or dehumidifier isn't going to be a great choice this late in the game. Even with expedited shipping, with two days before Christmas, this purchase might be best saved for the recipient's next birthday. However, if you're looking for gifts for a little family member that you won't likely see until after the holidays, there's still time to get a great toy.

For example, I bought Melissa and Doug Wooden Dinosaur Magnets today for a grandnephew of mine. I know it sounds silly, but with so much going on, I almost left the little tyke off the list. But, Santa saved the day, providing me with inspiration when I was searching online.

When comparison shopping at some of my favorite websites, I found these big wooden dinosaur cutouts and thought they'd make a great gift. With 20 magnets in bright colors, they can enrich his imagination, and maybe inspire him to learn more about dinosaurs. After all, a classic toy should pique the curiosity of the child, and give him the frame of mind to seek out excitement in other areas.

When I was 5 years old, I remember I got a wooden pirate ship complete with figurines. I'm sure my Mom wasn't happy, as I talked about nothing but swashbuckling for the next few months. Sure, I read "Treasure Island", dressed up as a pirate for Halloween, had a pirate name, but it was all in good fun. (Though, I'm sure my Mom is glad I didn't turn into a pirate.)

Either way, this brings back fond memories of how the right toy can really spur the imagination and make a difference. I may not be a pirate, but my lake boat might not be here without this initial whiff of the high seas.

  1. I’ve been exploring for a bit for any high-quality articles or blog posts on this sort of area . Exploring in Yahoo I at last stumbled upon this site. Reading this information So i’m happy to convey that I’ve an incredibly good uncanny feeling I discovered just what I needed. I most certainly will make sure to do not forget this website and give it a glance on a constant basis.

    • I do consider all the cpnoects you have presented in your post. They’re really convincing and will definitely work. Nonetheless, the posts are very quick for starters. May just you please extend them a bit from subsequent time? Thank you for the post.

    • Yes, it does, and as best I can tell, your distinction is cocrret.You still should not care. You can measure direct traffic as well as anyone else. Track back / ping back is usually spam, and when it isn’t, you don’t care, because you can already see it. It was a good idea that failed under the hooves of spammers. Email only works because people actually care about it, and it is kind of a bitch to make work, these days. Nobody cares about track backs.

  2. Thanks , I have just been looking for information about this topic for ages and yours is the greatest I’ve discovered so far. But, what about the conclusion? Are you sure about the source?

    • Excellent read, I just passed this onto a couleagle who was doing some research on that. And he just bought me lunch as I found it for him smile So let me rephrase that: Thank you for lunch! Dreams are real while they last. Can we say more of life by Henry Havelock Ellis.

    • cupcake8million Posted on congrats- your lvniig my dream since you won’t see your family/ friends for a long tie you could go cheesy- wish you were here or on the trail again or Where in the world is (your name)? Best of luck!

  3. This site can be a stroll-by means of for the entire information you wanted about this and didn’t know who to ask. Glimpse right here, and also you’ll positively discover it.

    • Works well! It is not obvious, thoguh. Will new users know to click on the yellow bubble or time stamp?Within the thread itself, perhaps you can put the same yellow bubble next to the title of the thread to keep things consistent? Maybe a yellow bubble with a down arrow?

    • I think the tasks are better smusubed by two other things: Google Alerts to discover other conversations, and then subsequent blog posts that link to the other conversations if they are worthwhile.Of course, this is somewhat more work than automatic pingbacks, but then, I can’t recall ever following a pingback myself – pretty much the only time I notice the conversation continuing elsewhere is because it was either someone I followed, or it came up on a social news site, or because the blog author linked to it themselves.
