Battery update

In case anybody remembers (and cares) about our Battery Free Until He's Three goal, here were the battery added toys added during year two:

- A ride-on dump truck (from BT's mom)
- 2 garbage trucks (one from BT and one from his mom)
- a roaring tiger flashlight (from mama)

As a reminder, here is where we were at with batteries last year. I still think we're doing ok overall keeping batteries (and toy noise) to a minimum. Hank's favorite toys are a barn set, Duplo Legos, and a wooden train set from Ikea.


No new faves

I really love this battery free idea. How have the responses been when you have let people know? Just wondering if there have been any awkward reactions.

so funny that you have to ask people for battery-free gifts, maybee in holland we are a littlebit backward, but we normaly don's give small children toys with batteries. hope people get used to it where you live and i think it's great you take action!!
love, riet:)

I admire you're effort of the battery free years and I hope that you can keep it as long as possible. Someone has to start this...... Good luck.....!!!
