toys. always the hardest gift guide for me to put together. i guess because i know lots of kids just want dora, spiderman, and thomas the train for the holidays. don't get me wrong, my son flips his lid for these characters, but i still like to encourage toys that are imaginative and, of course, beautiful. here are some favorites this season that will still excite your tot and yet, mama might want to display it on her string bookcase!
