All parents know that their kids' favorite toys are not the ones that cost the most or are even the most beautiful. Ohdeedoh reader, Kathy, staved off a potential "toddler meltdown" at a Michael's store with a $5 bag of pom-poms that have since become her daughter's favorite thing to play with.

Kathy writes: Who knew they would end up being one of her favorite and longest lasting toys...Everyday she asks to play with her Fluffies (that's what we call them). She throws them around and puts them in containers and transfers them to other containers with plastic spoons and on and on. She never seems to get tired of them. I hope she will have fun sorting the colors and sizes when she gets a little older.

As Kathy notes, the clean-up can be annoying (and these would not be good in a home with infants or pets prone to eating small items): The only down side to fluffies is you have to pick them up. There's always one that escapes and looks at me from under the couch the next morning. But that's OK. We love our fluffies.

Visit Kathy at her blog, Laowai and see adorable videos of her daughter, Bea, under attack from the "fluffy cannon."
