See and Spells make fun, kid-friendly holiday gift

If you're in the market for a classic gift for your kids or grandkids a classic see and spell could be just the item you're looking for.

My wife and I have been doing some Christmas shopping lately, as she's been quick to point out when handling the blog, and we've come across some fun items to give our grandkids. We've been a bit sentimental of late, thinking about the toys from our past and trying to see if any of the old classic toys are still available online.

That's one of the reasons it was such a relief to find the Melissa and Doug 2940 See and Spell. Since our kids have been spoiling their little ones with a lot of new technology, (does a baby really need an iPad?) we figured we'd stick to something that let the kids exercise and develop their motor and spelling skills.

Featuring a series of playful pictures and colorful wooden letters, the See and Spell allows kids to identify the shapes of words while learning sound and spelling. (Not to mention that the details in the pictures are really stunning.) This is probably going to our youngest granddaughter, as she is still just learning the basics. (This one fits the bill as it features just three- and four-letter words that she can try and learn.)

In addition, since it weighs only about two pounds, it should be a cinch for my daughter-in-law to slip it into her ever-expanding baby bag.

I may be a bit old-fashioned, but I'm sure I'll have a blast this holiday season watching her tear off the paper and begin putting words together. I may even help her out. (It'll be more fun than fixing an electric heater problem, that's for sure.)

  1. Interesting blog! Is your theme custom made or did you download it from somewhere? A design like yours with a few simple adjustements would really make my blog jump out. Please let me know where you got your design. Bless you
