MU Picked · Toys To Inspire Self Play
Likely because Bodie has had one on one attention for most of his first two years, he's still quite accustomed and expectant of a constant playmate. While I relish that I'm his favorite human in the world for as long as that lasts, I've spent much of the second half of this year expanding our activity set to inspire more independence. The idea of Bodie being able to occupy himself for a whole fifteen minutes with intermittent check-ins still feels like a reach so I called on Natalie to pull this list as we prepare for vacation. As a reminder - Natalie Gentile went from nannying a pair of little ones to teaching in a New York City preschool to becoming a mother and founding a Brooklyn based business called King Kidlet. Based on her experience in classrooms and at home, she compiled her favorites to inspire self-play. You can shop her whole list below or see more in M.U. Picked.
