What Rachel Wants to Buy This Week - Episode 33

After a few weeks of zaniness, here we are again with a regular old edition of What Rachel Wants This Week! I almost can't believe I've done 33 of these so far. Just goes to show you how much cool stuff there is here that I want to buy... ;)

Charley Harper Flash Cards and Floor Puzzles by Ammo Books
Located on the New Titles table and outside the Baby Room

Anything involving Charley Harper is bound to be a staff favorite here at Curious George, and this set of alphabet flash cards is no exception! Staffer Natasha suggested the set should make it onto the blog this week, and since I'd planned to write about it anyway, I happily obliged. Harper's minimalist wildlife art is vividly reproduced on twenty-six 8" by 4" sturdy cards--and when you turn the cards over, they become pieces for two different floor puzzles featuring more of Harper's art! These flash cards are not only great for kids just learning the alphabet, but also great for art-loving adults to frame and hang as decoration.

Western Fun Dinnerware Set by Pecoware
Located in the Baby Room

I love fun plates and utensils, like Food Face from the Chrismukah edition of What Rachel Wants, so of course I can't resist this five-piece set. Decorated with retro-style art of a cute child cowboy and his pony, a tepee, and Western landscape and gear. There's a plate with three sections, to keep different foods from touching (I hate it when things touch that really don't go together!), a bowl, cup with a handle, fork and spoon--everything required for a cowboy or cowgirl meal. :)

Bingo Fun for Everyone! by Schylling
Located downstairs in the Chapter Book Room

Bingo is one of those games that just never gets old--and Schylling proves it with this great game set, complete with a mini ball cage, a master Bingo card to hold the balls as they're drawn, and a full complement of cards and colored chips, so you can play over and over again. Whether it's for a party or just a game night with a big family, this classic set is the perfect way to bring Bingo fun to your living room, or your kitchen, or MY living room....

Like Porky says--th-th-th-th-that's all, folks!
