What is your LO's favourite toy at the moment?

she has some felt and wood play food and a canvas bag. I set it up on a shelf and she puts it all in the bag. Puts some back, chats to her dolls about it, etc. Easily entertains her for 45 minutes.

Now knives must be even further away!
Or her little people and figurines and plastic castle are always good for a 30 minute playtime. Puzzles.
She doesn't have one real favourite toy really.

DS (22 months) has a bucket of clothes peg that are red, white and blue. His favourite thing to do at the moment is to tip them onto the floor, then sort the pegs by colour back into the bucket - first the red, then the white, then the blue. Then he tips them all out and repeat.
