About Joanne


  1. I took a peek at the toys listed. If taken lightly, an amusing list for sure. However, from a more serious POV, basics like Legos, K’nex, puzzles, and wooden train sets probably do more to develop the “nerd” mind than the toys on the list. Also, while my teens would love the Zombie (I might have to get one). It would have terrified them as preschoolers.

    I agree with Rachel. Legos. Really, any sort of building toy. Basic wooden blocks. Marbles, and marble runs. Boxes. Sticks. Small electronic scales, easily used by kids. Calculators. Dice. Nerf machine guns.
