Well, it’s that time of year again, the time wherein we start pulling out the decorations of our minds and gearing up the imagination for Xmas, which we all know is right around the corner. So given how much fun I had last year, I’m gonna ty this madness again. 110 toys until Xmas over the next 110 days (the math probably doesn’t work out, but who’s really counting?) Nobody like the bava, and it’s time we started having a little fun around here. What’s more, serendipity plays some real role in one’s impetus to return to the web and fill it with our personal goodies. And this bit of inspiration came today in the form of this post on the “Coffee for Two” blog.
The description and image of the legendary old gold toy Fuzzy Pumper immediately returned the rush that was an everyday experience with the 110 Days to Xmas posts last Fall and Winter, and I just couldn’t resist. It also goes to show me that I’ve only just begun to scratch the surface of this archive of my imagination. And damn, Play Doh toys that grow hair, doesn’t get trippier than that. Check out the video to see just how truly crazy such a toy can be. This is a classic, and great way to kick of the new season.
109 to go….
I always wanted one of these sets. Unfortunately, my mom thought play-doh was a plaything of the devil. I guess she spent too many hours pulling tiny balls of dried up dough out of our shag carpet.
As a parent now, though, I went out and bought a play-doh set when Madigan was WAY too young for it — really, I just wanted to finally get a chance to get my fix.
It wasn’t nearly as satisfying as I had hoped.
