|Walking |tour cards!|
My latest purchase was a deck of cards called "City Walks with Kids". I LOVE it! Each card contains a small walk, designed with kid interest, kid attention, kid needs in mind. One side contains the 'map' you need, the other side, a short comment on what to look at, what to see, where to eat, etc. Perfect.
But all the beauties of Eros paled in light of the wonders promised at Hamley's, London's largest (and self-proclaimed "Finest") toy store: it was 7 floors of wonder and delight. Duncan explored them all!

It was a bit of a surprise to come across a large display of Yoyo's named after Duncan, proclaiming to be "#1 in the world". He agreed! :-) After a full 1.5 hours of exploring, we escaped with minimal damage: magic plastic balloons (matching my hair!), a flying UFO, and a new backgammon board. I can tell this is one store Duncan will be wanting to return to again and again.

Anyways, the store is a "purveyor of fine foods", and the chocolate display on the first floor was just too much for Duncan to bear! He claimed it was torture to be made to wander the aisles with a mother who wanted to look, but not buy. Pure torture!
