This week’s Tablet magazine column is about the transformative power of toys lost, found and reinvented.

The tale of Ah-Ah:

And the rebirth of Maxie’s stuffed lovie, Isabel Montina.

(Here are three pictures of baby Maxie with Isabel Montina, as I cannot CHOOSE ONE. I am her MOTHER and I am PARALYZED by her ADORABILITY. )

Look at the punim. And the Jewfro.

    Greetings from California! I’m bored to death at work so I decided to browse your blog on my iphone during lunch break. I enjoy the knowledge you present here and can’t wait to take a look when I get home. I’m amazed at how fast your blog loaded on my cell phone .. I’m not even using WIFI, just 3G .. Anyways, amazing site!
