Lego Wishes

The little dude showed me his “wish list,” which he constructed today on his own. It reads:

(His name), Lego Star Wars, Indiana Jones Lego.

He got some spelling help by looking at the packaging of some of the toys he already has. My little boy, already writing and getting caught up in the true spirit of Christmas – consumerism!

The item notably missing from his list is a plastic lightsaber, which means we won’t have to disappoint him by not getting one. It seems that he’s digested our discussions about how hard weapons (as opposed to the safe plush ones we currently have) are off limits until his little brother has better control of his impulses and coordination.

Here’s Q-ster and his re-creation of the Temple Idol scene from Raiders of the Lost Ark, improvising from his Star Wars Lego kits. The “Han Solo” mini-figurine stands in for Indiana Jones, totem pole-like stacks of yellow mini-fig heads surround Indy’s guide, and the greenery from Jar Jar’s home planet serve as jungle foliage. He explained that the ridged temple floor represented “boobies” (booby traps) and that the mini-fig heads would shoot blow darts. Not bad for a four year old who hasn’t actually seen the movie yet.

Seriously, it's like you're living in my house.

I am impressed with the Q-ster's printing. Wow!

I have a 4-year-old girl, so over here it's all about the Barbie and the Disney Princesses. I would far, far prefer Lego, to be honest.

Writing, Ah.
vs Lego, where he likes to use his imagination and creates them.

Very nice! We played with a bunch of my brother's old playmobil over Thanksgiving. We did confiscate some of the more offensive items ... feather bonnets, tomahawks--eek.
