I’m not exactly sure what this is, but it was part of the garbage we’ve been moving out of the garden at The Blueberry Muffin. At least I thought it was garbage. I had dragged it to the side of the road for pick up.
“No, no,” says #1 Son. This will make a great sniper pit for Little Bear. And so he drags it home. And sure enough, when I drop by after work today, Little Bear is in his pit, nerf gun at the ready, defending his terrain from imagined enemies, battle lines drawn in the grass with sticks and chunks of wood and random pieces of garbage.
But a child’s imagination is fluid and has no boundaries. Half an hour later, I hear squeals of delight and amuse myself watching from the back deck as they push this giant hamster wheel around the garden and through the neighbour’s empty lot. Then, of course, Dad has to get in on the action and they try to roll him about. Not so easy. A fun afternoon.
Anyway… not sure what this thing is. No brand name toy for sure. No Toys r Us special. Not even a Walmart version but definitely …
