A friend recently pulled some puzzles out while my son was visiting, and that has inspired a renaissance of puzzle work at our house. I love this cool little double-sided puzzle from Crocodile Creek. The smiling puff of smoke strikes me as a bit of dark humor: "Hi! I'm just a friendly little cloud of pollution!"
This blanket is currently serving as curtain in our room because we are too busy and too broke to buy anything that might qualify as "real curtains." I like the cool, happy light the hippo brings to the room. He was a baby gift we received from a friend when our oldest was born, inspired by this little ditty. (Consider yourself warned: it's quite the earworm.)
