Lots of Movin Around Around Here

The Living Room has been turned into the playroom! In addition to the books that were already there, there is a train table, dolls, a doll cradle and doll high chair, puppets, silks, play kitchen, blocks, and toddler toys.

On the left bookcase - wooden rollercoaster (thrift store $1) and sensory puzzle and locks puzzle


Doll basket - I crocheted that blanket over twenty years ago, long before I even had any children. Makes me smile when I see it in there. There is also a wooden high chair and wooden cradle.


Silks. We used to have some authentic Waldorf silks, but they eventually ripped. My mom got all of this silky material for practically free, and sent it to me.


The train table. Purchased this about 5 years ago. Love it. It has two drawers on each end. I also slid two of the baskets from our coffee table. (The baskets have always held toys in them. The coffee table had 3 openings for 3 baskets.) Moved this train table where the coffee table used to be.

Wood Thomas the Train pieces

Mega blocks in the other drawer.

Puppets and toddler stacking toys in the baskets


End table with another basket in it (coffee table matched this end table. It was shorter and had 3 openings.) Toys next to end table and couch.

Soft toddler toys inside the basket

Toddler balls and Jack In The Box


Fisher Price Aquarium with plastic balls

Toddler toys in the bottom shelf of the right bookcase - smaller rollercoaster, Fisher Price Piggy Bank, Dust Pan/Hand Sweeper,Wooden Car, Stuffed Rabbit Pull Toy, Hammering Toy, and Nesting Cups.
Above these shelves, there is a shelf for toddler books, and a shelf for preschool/early reader books.
