Middle Eastern Nesting Dolls. I think these are wonderful. One of my close friends was living in Dubai for a few years & brought this as a gift for my boys. Unfortunately we lost the tiniest doll - a camel! - the day we got it. I'm sure it's under a floorboard somewhere...
A coin from the United Arab Emirates (am I the only one who feels weird thinking of the Middle East as part of Asia?)
The incense cones I bought recently. They smelt really toxic (!) when I burnt one so we'll just look at them now I think.
I Ching coins.
A goddess postcard, chopsticks & the tie from the traditional white outfit many boys wear in the MIddle East (I need to ask my friend what it's called because I can't remember) - we have the full outfit in the costumes area.
I also have a great set of cards of children from Asia that C from Sunrise Learning Lab very kindly sent me a year (or more!) ago and probably lots of other bits and pieces that I should gather.
BTW, there is a *back to school* giveaway at Sunrise Early Learning. Go enter!
