I found a great deal at the thrift store a couple of days ago--Tinker Toys! It wasnt a full barrell, but there were enough to have some fun with, so I got them. But at our house we use a word similar to "Tinker" to describe that funny sound that comes from our daughter's diaper on occasion. The word we use is "stinker." So here is the conversation that transpired when I introduced the Tinker Toys to Luxie:

"Oh!" said Luxie.
"We can build with them. They're called Tinker Toys"
"noooooooo!" (with a "you're so silly mommy" sound.)
"Yes! They are called Tinker Toys"
"nooooooo! dees not tinker (her pronounciation of stinker) toys!"
"Not 'stinker' toys, Tinker Toys" I said.
"Not 'tinker' toys, TINKer toys!"
