toy attachment

Hi! New to forum. I have a 7yo and 16mo. My 16mo has suddenly become very attached to a building block. He refuses to put it down. When we take it away, he pitches a fit. He's normally a very sweet, cooperative child. Even when he is getting into things, we can simply ask that he put it back, and he will do it. He's very loving and affectionate. He loves to eat and loves his milk, so we've recently tried to "force" him to put it down by giving him his milk or food to see if he will put it down. He still doesn't put it down. He is even going to bed with it now. My question is...should I be worried about this strange attachment to, of all things, a block?

No, don't worry about it. When my DD was 3 years old we went on a vacation.During that vacation we used to rent packs and plays for her . In which her favorite was the building blocks. She got too attached to it that when we returned home we had to buy her a new set of building blocks! The craze for such toys is very natural. It changes with age. So don't worry about it too much!

My daughter had a bristle block she called a guitar (???). It went everywhere with us. Then one day she was just over it. I wouldn't worry about it.

No different I suppose than having a blankie, stuffie, or other such item that they cling to - it's just something familiar to them.

I think its cute and would not be worried at all. Why do we think its normal to be attached to a one thing but not another! Its all good!
