I really like the cookie cutters. I don't have any cookie cutters yet and I think my 2 year old would love them.

I really like the collapsible colander. Who wouldn't want something that doesn't clog up your utensil drawer? I have collapsible measuring cups, and they have been really great; I use them all the time.
