In case you were wondering if the sand really is pink in Bermuda. As you can see the white outnumber the pink by at least 100 to 1, so you actually have to look rather closely to see the pink. Meanwhile in the tourist shops they sell pink sand that based on this evidence they either sifted to remove the white or they colored it...

Thanks for all of the advice & stories about culling toys & books. We now have two of these "baby computers" plus my old MAC that I let him type on.
I am ready to push back here too. I am still amazed that people (grandparents & some parents) are so ready to push this type of entertainment onto a child when they did not have it & still learned the things that children need to learn - sharing, reading, group play, manners...
Sorry if that was too somber a thought for a Friday, but I am 1/2 an hour away from donating a bag of books & several baby/toddler toys. I am not 100% comfortable with the process (I wanted to involved Jacob, but I want it done & our family time is limited already...)
Anyone have any thoughts on all of these electronic (or just plain noisy) toys?

Another random vacation shot. I love how his eyes look in this one., a photo by aviva_hadas on Flickr.
Another post that has nothing to do with the photo...
SO alack of responses to my questions yesterday - does that mean that everyone has a stash of all of their kids toys & books from the begining? (If you do, can you send me all of your old Play Skool & Fisher Price toys?)
Am I the only one who plans on culling the art work too?

I just picked him up from camp where he had been napping., a photo by aviva_hadas on Flickr.
This post has nothing to do with this random photo from our vacation...
I need some advice on sorting toddler stuff...
How did/do you go about sorting books & toys for donation?
We are "one & done" & do not have an attic, garage, or basement for long term storage - aka grandkids.
I set some of those wooden puzzles aside because they hadn't been looked at in quite a while & he is getting at least closer to a more challenging puzzle style, but last night he wanted to puzzle again...
I've pulled some books as well - those that are not on our current rotation & are simpler (I had some other reasons behind my sort as well, but they are extraneous to my question.)
