The boys have some Fisher Price Little People toys (go ahead, hit the link, you know you need to hear the theme song). Well, some is probably not the right adjective. You'll see in a minute. What I mean, is that like most kids these days, there are some Little People toys in the house. In all actuality, Mom is the one that likes Little People. Oh, the boys play with them alright, but Mom is the one down at the local thrift store buying dollar goodie bags hoping to find and rescue miscast Little People. Just ask my good friend, Debbie, about that and yard saling.
At any point, it had been a while since we'd played with the Little People toys. To steal a phrase from one of my other good friends, Patricia, we set up our "Little People Village" this afternoon on top of the pool table. In all honesty, the construction set and the airport runway just won't fit even with that much space to lay it out. However, I got most of it laid out while the boys had a good time playing. The car garage, house, and farm remain the alltime favorites at our house.
We have a lot of the holiday and special occassion sets too. I guess my very favorite set is the Christmas one with the candy shop, reindeer, and elves.
Here's to the little kid in all of us;-)
