The kind and lovely folks at B.Toys sent over some new toys for EZ E and Kicky to play with. I've mentioned before how much we love B.Toys and this recent gift was no exception. We were having a particularly bad, scream-y day when the UPS driver pulled in the driveway and handed over a box containing the Ballyhoo and Car Go Cargo. The kids and I were thrilled (thank you for your impeccable timing, B.Toys).
My favorite kind of toys are the ones in which our kids see unexpected playing potential; those are the toys that inspire creativity and those are the toys have staying power at our house. The kids played with everything as designed, but then the Ballyhoo became a cave for EZ E's "guys" and Kicky loaded up the Car Go Cargo with all of her teeny tiny animals, stuck her ratty old Mandy doll on top, and spent forever driving it around the house. That's what I mean by unexpected playing potential and that, my friends, is clever design. Thanks for all of that, B.Toys!
