    When my nephew was about 15 or 16 months old, his favorite toy wasn’t believe it or not an Altoids Tin with a couple pennies in it. He loved to rattle it in the car. Why is it that kids seem to enjoy stuff like containers and remotes more than all those pricey toys out there? It’s just one of life’s great mysteries I guess!
