-Sand/water table though it might be getting too cold for that soon
-Homemade play-dough (recipes)
-Plan Toys concertina (super annoying but he adores it)
-simple inflatable balls to roll around the house, throw at things, toss into buckets, etc.
He has a ton of fancy expensive toys that he's been given over the last few years, but they tend to be neglected in favor of the simple things--playdough, blocks, balls, and weird stuff he finds outside. For awhile, his absolute favorite toy was a half-full plastic water bottle. Such fun to roll around and slosh and shake!

Two cats, two dogs, complete chaos.
Very recently ds is starting to show some interest in dolls (up until now he has looked at them quite warily) & if that continues I'm going to look for an anatomically correct boy doll.

Typos+weird words=typing on my iPhone
One thing we don't have is basic blocks, like the bigger standard unit blocks. But I wonder if he'd play with them. He'll play with the duplo all day long right now. I'm sure I'll end up adding to the collection.
