Mars and Venus in a Family Room

On Christmas Day we went to my brother in law’s home. He has a little girl and her little friend and her family were over as well. So on one side of the family room were two little girls playing the Littlest Pet Shop, there were scads of these plastic critters (Have y’all seen them? They all look like they’re depressed or strung out… that they either need a shot of prozac or need to be put down. Good Grief.) and on the other side of the family room were my boys making Bionicles.

Bones got them out today and set them on the kitchen counter. Too bad the Bionicles weren’t real robots. I think they’d have eaten all those freaky Pet Shop animals.

Kind of Micronautish.

Your right. The problem is... we end up with these things built and... then what? I told my husband we need to keep the directions and then take them apart, put them in baggies WITH the directions, and then stow them or give them away.

Bionicles are taking over my house...

I will make sure I tell my girls that they play with freaky toys. Cause your boys don't. hehehe

Did I ever tell you about the boy vs. girl tea party we had at our house? If I didn't, I'll email it to you. Long story, but definitely delineated gender!

Your kids need one of these.

Elisson - I'm sure someone probably Photoshopped that, but just in case it actually exists I WANT one! I know just the girl who needs it for her collection. Now, what do you have in the way of Care Bears and Strawberry Shortcake?

Thanks for the laugh. My daughter just outgrew those little critters and they could get a little disturbing. Sure they entertained her for hours but there was something slightly creepy about their big miopic eyes.
