suitable toddler's gift

So, after an emotional let-out yesterday, I went shopping! :-).

Well, technically, I needed to shop because I wanted to get a birthday present for Ash's playgroup mate who will be turning 2 this Sunday. The mom had told me last week that she'll be celebrating her daughter's birthday today, I thought I'd better be gettin' something for her. I was thinking....loose diamonds maybe?!

But...the following is what I got :

numbers puzzles

It's a wooden numbers puzzle from ELC at the Curve. An educational activity suitable for ages 2 to 6 years. There are 2 sets of flat puzzle blocks; the numericals with corresponding picture numbers. You are supposed to find out which number goes with which picture and attach them together like a puzzle.

You can actually see what it looks like from the illustration above.

I love ELC but the price is really a turn-off. In my life-time I only bought anything from there twice; this being the second. I bought a wooden pull cart with 8 shaped blocks for Ash the last time and it set me back more than RM50. I can't remember the actual price.

As you can see, the original price for this box of 20 puzzle pieces cost RM79 but they were on sale. So, I got it at a 50% discount! Great huh! :-). The whole place is having this big storewide sale. If you want something from there, you'd better get them this weekend. Such was the deal that I bought one for the girls myself..heheh...Couldn't resist now, can I? :-D.

Shireen, a good place to get education toys at very reasonable price is to go directly to the supplier to kindi. I know one at kajang. worth visit, as they have all sorts of good toys. details here:

The ones at malls are just simple overpriced.

Bumped into your blog by chance. Coincidentally, we bought the same Wooden Magnetic Numbers too; have been eyeing it for a while and grabbed it during the sale. Too bad the Alphabets are sold out.
