A month or so ago, I bought a plastic container with five pink bar erasers, one white one, twenty-four pencil tip erasers, and ten pencil grips. They're in really bright colors, two kinds of reds, two kinds of blues, orange, and yellow. Ever since I brought it home it's become Jet's favorite toy set. He can count them, line them up as a choo-choo, tell me about the colors, stuff them into his trucks, slippers, and other toys, and basically do a thousand and one kid things with them. He loves 'em. We even bring them with us when we go out to eat and they'll keep him occupied for at least the meal...

Probably the best two dollars I didn't spend on a kid toy.
