GeekDad writer Jonathon Liu recently posted what he thought are the Top 5 Toys of All-Time List.
Taking the number one spot is the "stick", yes the plain old, maybe slimy, dirty, thing that falls off of a tree, stick.
Next up is the "box" - admit it who hasn't made a house from the washing machine or oven box?? I know I did.
Number three is "string" - remember Cat's cradle or how you tied up your little brother with it. Don't even mention what you can do to your cat with string.
Next is "the cardboard tube"- which was really a telescope or the extra long types could be swords or lightsabers (Star Wars fans only)
Coming in last place is "dirt" - yes, Mr. Liu chose dirt as one of the Top Five gifts of all time. I'm not sure even your mother wants to agree with this one. She'd be the one having to clean you up after your done playing with or in it.
Check out his full post for more ideas on how to put these basic "toys" to use in your home. Think of all the money you'd save and how much you'll save on garbage and recycling with these gifts. We'll after putting #5 to good use, you'll need to fill the bath tub! Why not it would be worth it.
If none of the above work for you or your family this Christmas, please take a look at the wonderful gifts we have at The Catholic Gift Shop. One of my favorites this year is the Holy Family Necklace.
What's your Top 5 Toys of all time? I think the cardboard box was one of my childhood favorites.
