Cathy pound a ballNow that the holidays are winding down, it’s time to sort through the gifts that were received! Dominic got some awesome presents at Christmas, but one of his favorite toys from years gone by, is a “pound-a-ball” toy.  It was given to him by a friend whose two children had outgrown it. Lucky us, right? There are so many cool things about the toy that I don’t really mind the constant banging. 🙂

He can now match the balls to the colors of the holes on the top of the toy! That is awesome, because he used to not be able to do that. Dominic watches very little television and instead prefers to play with his toys. 68627If you asked him right now what he thinks of the “pound-a-ball” toy, I guarantee his response back would be, “good!”

Cool!! As a busy mom, I love it when a toy will keep him occupied for more than five minutes!
