Favorite find of the month

A common problem as a child life specialist is having your toys “walk away”. Being that I’m still fairly new, I haven’t found a grand source for toy donations so the toys that I do have to lend out to patients, I take extremely good care of.
One of my more popular toys is my “little people playsets” – you know, a plastic castle, home, or scene that comes with little characters to play in. Since the playsets themselves are fairly large and have “pediatrics” “please return to child life” “Peds ER” written in sharpie all over them, they rarely* walk away. The “little people” however disappear before they even come out of the box! I’ve been wanting to find a good solution to this that didn’t include spending millions on a lifetime supply of “little people” nor stopping use of the playsets all together.
Earlier this week I made a trip to Target where I found these cute Mystical Ponies! Each pack contains 20 and costs $1 (LOVE TARGET’S DOLLAR SECTION!) For boys, I have dinosaurs/ toy soldiers (not pictured) which also came in packs of 20 for $1. I stocked up on these little figurines & now if they’re taken, I have backup!
