  1. Miles is sitting next to me as I read this (he’s up way too early!) and he’s loving all the videos. I think I need to get that Hot Wheels race track now. It’s too loud though! I can already hear it driving me nuts. That would have to be an upstairs playroom only toy!
    I’m loving Barbie’s briefcase and Dora? What the…??

  6. I’ve always loved hot wheels and race car tracks. I had them when I was a kid and I always bought them for my kids. I think the grandkids need some now. :) Especially since they are adding Superman into the mix!

  9. This is cool! I’ve been following along on Facebook. I would absolutely love to have gone to this. You New Yorkers have all the fun! Although it’s probably best that I didn’t go. We may have had to take out additional storage for all of Little J’s new toys…

    • ha yes, there are a lot of fun events in New York…but we didn’t buy just previewed 😉 We have to wait to buy like the rest of the world :)

  10. My oldest loved Thomas The Tank Engine when he was little. I think he had most of trains. He would have loved that back then.

  11. Noah is obsessed with his trains. Not necessarily Thomas, but that is mostly what he has… so I if he is fully potty trained by the summer we might get him that as a treat.
