Last week I featured a new line of nursery furniture available at Walmart.com. It's all made by Fisher-Price so you know it's a quality and well-known company making these products! I wanted to circle back and feature some of the other items from the line.  Again, I can't believe the prices on this furniture.  You don't even want to know what we … [Read more...]

Also plays 5 sounds and phrases and is much easier to snuggle with than a regular Thomas Train (which my son has tried to do!). Phrases … [Read more...]
