Toys The Orples Recommend

This page is our newest adventure. Even Orples have to work  so we are busy checking out deals on Amazon (for now) to pass along to those of you with children and grandchildren. We may add other vendors as time goes on.  For now,  we will stick with some of the quality toys, books, family products, and craft projects  on the market  offered through Amazon.

In some of my past posts I’ve already introduced  several toys. I will add links to this page in case you see something you liked in a past post, but are not sure  where your saw it. You should be able to find it here, or on a related page.


 

The Orples are playing with their V-Tech watches.

V-Tech’s Smart Watch

They have a video on Amazon’s site that is mind blowing. Also note that for some reason the price of the watch varies with the color, so if color doesn’t matter, from what I’ve seen, the green one (shown below) is the best deal.

Breyer’s collectible horses (the one I featured, the Year of the Horse (2014) as featured in Chinese Astrology,  is sure to become a collector’s item. I bought one myself with the intention of holding on to it in its original box for investment purposes.  You can see detailed features of this lovely horse (or any of the other Breyer horses) on all four sides, and the underside too on Amazon’s site by clicking here  (in general) or use the widgets on my side margin.

Remember when paper dolls were made out of paper, flaps and all? Well this is what paper dolls look like in 2015. They are magnetic with paper stickers.  Who’d have thunk it fifty years ago?

I bought one of these little Rocking Horses for Jacob  about 10 years ago and he loved it. So did his little brothers as it go passed down from one child to the next.   Amy’s post on Texas inspired this item to be listed as another winner, sure to please any child.

    1. Thank you, Amy. I bought that particular item, since it will outrun inflation by leaps and bounds. Certain Breyers horses are worth a small fortune today, and I am hoping that particular horse will be one of them. Time will tell. :)
