Best learning toy? An empty yard with no grown-ups in it and for indoors a basket of paper, pens and other art supplies with no adult interference. Best jeans? 501s. Why? Because they are cheap, come up to my waist and are available in different lengths. I am not big on make-up, but have become very fond of this eyeliner from L'Oreal that has a tip like a felt pen. Very easy to use, which means I actually bother sometimes. I am opposed to the snack thing. Diet snacks that are pre-packaged can't easily be up to any good. I am not really in favor of dieting either.
