lock and key toy

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I'm looking for a good toy for my 2 year old who's obsessed with trying to open the front door with my keys.. I don't like him playing with the real thing because he's really grinding down my car keys.
I only found one or two online, and they looked rather babyish..
suggestions?

Good thing not to let him play with the real thing. Keys often contain lead.

Would any of these work?

We have this one: http://www.amazon.com/Melissa-Doug-D...6422080&sr=1-2 . My mom thinks it is brilliant, my MIL thinks it is terrible, DS likes it a lot. We got it for him at 20m. We don't actually have any similiar latches in the house. Made in China.

This is what would like: http://www.amazon.com/TAG-Little-Loc...6422202&sr=1-1 Made in the US.

Neither is key specific but similiar om concept.

What about putting one together w/ locks from the hardware store? You can buy several different locks w/ keys there, and I would think you could just screw them tightly to a large discarded piece of lumber from the store's "castoff" box. I bet you could make a great one for under $20 for a bunch of locks!
