I made sock bunnies for another friend with a bag (for a girl) had forgotten about that.
Also have moulds for crayons...

grin at jam, I doubt I would be thanked for that.

Made him a taggy blanket at birth so bit hesitant to go down 'soft furnishings' route again.

I can't remember what they're called but one of those bags with a little viewing window in and you have to find little toys and things in it <hopeless at describing emoticon>

Ah, here's one -- it's called an I Spy Bag

we use treasure baskets with the babies at work. Basket full of natural materials like cones, wooden spoons, anything wood ect. Another full of materials and then another with things around the house like sponges, wisks, toothbrush, clothes ect ect.

They love them
