The kids had a unique opportunity this week. One of our Neighbors, Jeff Freeland Nelson, owns a wonderful toy company in St. Paul called Yoxo. This toy is very creative and comes as a kit of pieces you can construct into anything you want. You can also use your own paper towel and toilet paper tubes, and cereal boxes to add even more pieces to your Yoxo collection. This toy is perfect for stimulating imagination and creativity.
When we arrived, the only thing on this rug were bins of Yoxo pieces. Check out all the cool things these kids made!
I also love how extremely environmentally-friendly this toy is!

The kids had a great experience playing and being on the news. :) Each child got to take home anything they made. You can watch the news segment here (both kids got close-ups!) and make sure you check out the Yoxo website here. Yoxo would make a fabulous Christmas present for any young mind! Thanks, Jeff, for letting us be a part of this and for the toys! I think Ethnie has made at least three different things with her pieces. Emmett is keeping his as a rover. :)
