I love em. I love whales, fish, cars, horses and monkeys. Although, I have a 12 year old boy, I have never had the opportunity to play with any of these toys with him. When he was 1, it was everything to do with Pooh and his gang, then it was Blues Clues(I can't get used to Joe), then we hit the Thomas the tank engine phase. We haven't left it yet. He has been slowly moving on to some older interests(yay!), but he still has such an extreme fascination in trains and Thomas. As much as I love hearing about Tyler's movie or book idea for Thomas, I am ecstatic to see Michael exploring all these great new areas of play that I am not used to. Or as everyone keeps saying, boy stuff. It's going to be fun.
