Gift Ideas From The New Baby For The Older Brother

Yesterday I posted about gifts for the older sister and since I’ve got a daughter and a son, I did some research for both and will share what I came up with for the older boy in the house. I’ll admit it, I could give my son a cardboard box and he would be entertained for hours, but I feel the occasion of becoming a big brother calls for a brand new toy that’s sure to be a hit and sure to entertain my little wild man. I’m going to need some help with entertaining him while I recover and take care of a newborn, so I’ll make sure to have some fun and new toys for him to play with. nggallery template=’carousel’ id=’128142′
