Without fail, Cillian’s two Manhattan Toys draw the most attention when other moms see them. Oh, that’s so much fun! They coo. I didn’t discover this line of toys, my friend Y did, and brought one as a gift for C after he was born (along with a gorgeous Baby Bonkie and a cute Wry Baby T-shirt. She is a very, ridiculously generous friend, I have to say).

Manhattan toys are priced reasonably (more expensive than Fisher-Price, I think, but still affordable, I think the one above retails for about $18). The colours are pleasing (I am not a big primary colour person), and the toys seem to intrigue the little ones. Mind you, so does a wooden spoon, but that doesn’t make for a fun baby gift, really.

In Toronto, they can be found at many places, including Playful Minds, and the always beyond awesome KolKid on Queen St. 


What Cillian did yesterday: Was bored out of his mind because we were trapped in by the rain for three days straight. So, played with measuring cups and a wooden spoon. He has a sore on his cheek that he keeps rubbing, so we bought Polysporin and Bandaids, and slapped a Bandaid on his cheek so he wouldn’t rub it at night. He looked like he was in a barroom brawl.  Then he kept us up most of the night, crying at 1am, wriggling like a lunatic at 3, 5:30 and 7:30. Oy. Thank goodness it’s going to be the weekend.
