What did we bring the boys home from New York as a souvenir? Why lollipops with a real scorpion embedded in the center of course. Who wants a simple Tootsie roll pop with boring old chocolate in the middle anyway?
We discovered The Evolution Store at FAO Schwarz but would have loved to visit their stand-alone store in SOHO. FAO Schwarz displays a fantastic subset of their products including insects in resin, anatomical models, fossils, etc., It was a homeschooling mom's dream, and I wanted to buy one of everything. It was also a nice antidote to walking past all of the girly stuff in the toy store :)
My husband didn't want to bring home a suitcase full of anatomic models like this one...
...but we did stock up on fun things like this:
Kal-El has always wanted an "bug birthday party" with "real bugs" for the guests to eat.
The bugs in resin are gorgeous:
...but the prices made me really grateful for $23 dollar set I picked up at Toys R Us.
Anyway, It is awfully fun to brows The Evolution Store website. I am not receiving any compensation for this post, I just wanted to share some neat links.
