Recently, on one of those side trips (without the kids), I had the opportunity (notice I said opportunity - after just telling one of my children how fortunate we are to live in America), to visit our local Wal-mart store. I happened to be looking for a birthday present when I haphazardly came across a nifty little item by Fisher-Price. It was a "Mobile Toy Cube." Now most of you would not consider this a homeschooling necessity, but having a Down Syndrome child whom has multiple therapies each month and being a homeschooling mother with other children, this caught my eye!
Measuring a full 12.25" wide, 13" high, and 12.25" deep, this nylon "toy carry-all" is just perfect for catching toys, workbooks, projects, and reading material that we must carry along to do while we are waiting. The Toy Cube has multiple pockets along the outside that can hold flashcards, coloring books, crayons, etc. You get the picture. It wipes clean with a damp cloth and has a sturdy nylon strap for carrying. All of this costs about $15. If you are interested in this product and cannot find it at your local store, you can most likely order it online from Fisher-Price at www.fisher-price.com. It sure has been a lifesaver or, should I say timesaver, for our family!
