Sticks and Stones

Have you seen this? What a perfect addition to the Toy Hall of Fame. It may create a problem for parents however:

Parent: Do you think toys just grow on trees ?
Child: Well, yes actually, they do.
Come to think of it, it may pose a greater danger to children. Besides the obvious concern of poking your eye out, any child who has that conversation with their parent is going to get smacked for being a smart ass. Possibly with their own stick.

I know that Hollis for one is a big fan of The Stick. We have several models currently on our back porch. He also manages to snag a new one every time we go out. Spoiled, I know. Thankfully, The Stick is also compatible with several other toys we already own such as: The Ball, The Hole and The Leaves. It is especially entertaining when combined with another periennal favorite, The Box It Came In. No Target for me this year, one big box full of sticks and Santa is finished!

For those of you not familiar with the workings of a three year old boy, that is three boxes used together to create a ramp for cars to race up before landing inside the largest box. The point of the game, obviously, is to get as many cars into the box as fast as possible.
