Babies are odd little creatures, aren't they?

Nicholas has a basket full of toys and books, yet spent this evening playing with an old train ticket and an empty yogurt pot. He also likes taking everything out of my handbag in search of my diary, which he will sit and open and close for ages. At Christmas, his favourite thing wasn't any of his presents, but a half deflated helium balloon left over from my mum's birthday.
Anyone else's babies have strange 'toys'?

My son loves shoes and shoe laces! he will search out the house to find his dad's work boots and attempt to lick them, eat them, and chew on them. Another one of his "toys" that he loves is the top ( lid ) of a ziplock container. he spends HOURS with it. Forget all his toys he would much rather play with the dogs toys including her rawhides. Yeah children are strange and wonderful!

Some of the things my daughter enjoys are remotes, any paper she can chew up, socks, pulling any clean laundry out of the basket (folded or not). We also have one of those large laser printers and she will play with that to long periods of time. We have to keep it turned off because she kept pushing the buttons and test pages would print out. When I'm working on the computer she will come and play under the desk, pulling on cords and such, we had to put a piece of cardboard up so she can't get to the cords as easily. And she only likes to play with my phone when I'm trying to talk on it, lol.

My daughter loved socks but my son likes remotes and he loves the wheels and peddles of his sisters trike. And he loves the pillows on the couch, he pulls them down then crawls over them and hugs them and lies down on them

If it has to do with electronic stuff my son does every thing in his power to get ahold of it. He loves my laptop, laptop cord, remotes, my cell phone and it's charger, basically anything that has to do with electronics.

my son is obsessed with the remote control! He also loves to play with empty butter containers...the only "toy" he really likes is "Sophie the giraffe", can't leave the house without it!

my boy plays with all his toys but his favorite things right now are empty water bottles, an empty Kleenex box, old magazines and cans off the pantry shelf.

my daughter only notices most of her toys if she happens to stumble across it, but she goes in search for paper, remote controls, any book she can get her hands on and she kept getting into the bottom drawer in the kitchen so i filled it with plastic lids that she can scatter all over the floor, so i started saving some that peak her interest and only let her play with them at certain times, like she has a couple toys that she can only play with while she takes a bath, or i only let her play with the remote while she gets her diaper changed (that one was a necessity or i would be chasing a poopy naked baby all over the place). but most of the time she is most interested in the things she knows she is not supposed to play with!

my son loves empty juice boxes and zippers. they are so curious that they want to explore outside the realm of "toys"
