We ordered Elliot and Sylvie a tacky (but kinda cute) plastic playground for their play yard. The freight truck delivered two gigantic boxes to our house last week, and Elliot had the biggest roundest eyes of amazement when I told him it was his birthday present! Handy Daddy put it together that evening with lots of "help" and we had two very eager slide testers. They are impressed!
It became meltdown central towards the end of construction as it was getting mighty close to bedtime.
