Toy Box: $2 Toy That Makes a Two-Year-Old Happy

My son's birthday party isn't for another week, but the other night he opened a few gifts and it was the present topper that occupied him for hours. A fan of all things in flight — rockets, airplanes, helicopters, jets, hangliders, even birds — he was smitten with the tiny matchbox airplanes, or "big jets" as he refers to them, that my mom found for $2 each at Target. He fell asleep with them in his hand and woke up to soar them in the air some more. If you've got a lil aviator, check out the Matchbox Skybuster 10 pack ($22) it's reasonable priced and might even come in handy on an airplane.

Matchbox cars and airplanes have become a staple in our lives for a couple years now. Every time I go into a store that carries the planes I have to check to see if they have a plane we don't already have. They are absolutely fabulous and our son LOVES them so much and gets more excited at these than most other gifts.
