Save the Halloween costume ads for on-the-go baby entertainment

Alex has found that the Halloween costume ads make great portable entertainment for her baby:

My 16-month-old has loved a bunch of Tom Arma babies-dressed-up-as-animals board books practically since birth. When the costume ads came in the mail, I pulled out the pages with babies on them. It's like a whole board book on one sheet of paper! I have even asked her to tell me which picture to read and she'll point at one. I am definitely keeping this folded up in a pocket of my mini diaper bag.
