That DS can climb on- ANY suggestions?<br><br>
Anything FS? Will pick-up ANYWHERE in Michigan or pay resonable shipping.<br><br><br>
Looking for like littletykes climber cube things w/ slide<br>
Littletykes climb in and play tugboat<br><br>
Or the like<br><br>
ALSO- ISO like foam pad things that come 4 in a pack- each piece is square and they are like $12 for 4 squares(I found them at Target- they are Red, Green, Blue and Yellow squares) and they attach together and you can add more to make larger mat- Need quite a few of these

$50. I kind of figured you were looking more for the climbing gear. Just thought I'd check! Good luck! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin">

Regarding the foam squares - Sam's Club had these for a great price for a while; do you know anyone with a membership who can take you shopping?

I picked up a huge pack of the foam squares at Marshall's for a good price. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

Sam's Club is 1.5-2hours from here<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"><br><br>
and I have NO idea where a Marshalls would even be- AT LEAST 2 hours away tho<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/rolleyes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="rolleyes">:<br><br>
How much were they- do you remember? For how many squares?<br><br>
Here is one- but it isn't the ones I saw- this looks like it might be a cheaper avenue..the ones I saw were primary colored and like 12" square, w/ grooves on all 4 sides to attach more squares....<br><br><a href="http://www.target.com/gp/detail.html/sr=1-3/qid=1063659813/ref=sr_1_3/602-5982961-9642210?asin=B000067QXC" target="_blank">http://www.target.com/gp/detail.html...sin=B000067QXC</a>

It's been over a year, but I did see some there in the last 6 months. It was like an alphabet puzzle, the letters came out, but it still made a nice padded surface - I actually used it to do pilates it was so cushioned. The squares are around 12" x 12 ".<br><br>
It couldn't have been more than $20. It is thinner and lower density (ie cheaper, lightweight) than other mats.<br><br>
Depending on what you want to do, the Target one is probably better for actual cushioning effect.<br><br>
Most of the high end kids catalogs like onestepahead have some variation on this. Just don't know where to get it any cheaper. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad">

About the Little Tikes stuff, I've got anything you can think ofand got everything at yard sales (or thrift stores). Yard sales are your best bet: I got the HUGE 8 in 1 playground for $50, a playhouse for $15...table and chairs for $2!<br>
Sometimes I even buy it to sell it on ebay! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br><br>
Good luck!

I have two sets of the foamy things that "snap" together - they are all pink/purple/yellow/green with crowns, stars, etc that also snap out of them.<br><br>
I think I have 12 squares that are maybe 8" square each?<br><br>
We needed them for the hardwood floors in the old house, but have no need for them now.<br><br>
Maybe $20ppd?
