I used stainless steel wire (dumb, I know) and colored beads for the top. 


Question:  Why was it dumb to use stainless steel wire?  (Just wondering).

I really like this concept.  I prefer yours much more over the ones in waiting rooms...those are tiny and many don't seem to stand up too well to what little kids do to them.  (Or perhaps it's just the ones that I've seen!)

I'm sure she'll love it.  The pizza pan/magnet surface and the chalkboard make me happy Smiley

Because it was harder than heck to bend.  I had to make a wood form to bend it around, and it still took some force to get it there.  Or maybe I'm just weak.

This may not happen, since I have had major surgery on my shoulder.

I am envious of your wordworking/engineering skills - what a great toy for a toddler.

Are you kidding me? She will LOVE it! You rock, and so does your toy. I wish I could make one of them for my son.

So cool, I'm sure it will get lots of use from the recipient and several toddlers after her.  It's definitely one of those things I would want to have around even when my kid outgrew it because you can tell how much love was involved in the making of it.  Wonderful job.
