WOW! That Parachute Person is awesome!!! What a great idea! I also love the binoculars. We made some using foam and they lasted about a week, these would last a lot longer!

Very smart to encourage home made toys! Not only does it make economical sense, but the value to kids in creativity and resourcefulness is priceless.

I’m coming over from KBN. That is a great idea to make your own toys. Our little ones often like the box toys came in as much as the toys anyway! Thanks for hosting the Mom’s Library.

I have a 1st grader and I love the innovation of this product, he is a gamer so playful works. Great DIY toys too, I’ll be borrowing some of these for my preschool class 🙂

Definitely a great idea to DIY your own toys. Not only can you save some money, it also help your child to be more creative. I think my son will love the “Parachute Person”. Just need to try it out this weekend. Thanks for all the wonderful toy ideas.

Great ideas, guys. I always thought the DIY toys were much better than the store-bought ones because they allow the kids to express their creativity. Also, the DIY toys come from the heart, they are something money just can’t buy.
