Today, Ivie decided to take her Elmo Laptop to school for Show-and-Tell. This is one of those toys that I feel like we've owned since before she was born! In reality, she probably got it for her first birthday? I can't remember.
Anyway, it's interesting, because while we've had this toy for what seems like ever, Ivie's at the age now where she can actually use it for what it's designed. As a learning tool. Confirming her knowledge of letters, identifying objects like "surfboards" to which she hasn't yet been introduced, and continuing to practice her counting and shape recognition. All with a toy that "responds" with Elmo's voice. She loves it. Clearly!
