Toy Story IV

The Octonauts Explore The Great Big Ocean In the beginning Jai had a fascination for Octonauts. So we acquired every plastic figurine, ‘Gup‘, and related underwater construction.

Then he discovered Thomas the Tank Engine. For a while we had almost every available aluminium train in the series, most which magnetically connect end to end. That included a boat on a carriage and the fat-controller in his car, both non-magnetic!

A year ago Paw Patrol was spotted on ABC iView. Thanks to his grandmother every character is a stuffed toy in Jai’s bed AND she created a large Paw Patrol patterned pillow case. It is still his favourite and carries him off to dreams of firefighting dogs each night.

Dinosaur Bones ABC4Kids have a new show which has captured Jai’s vivid imagination.

Andy’s Historic Adventures.

It is fun to watch him make dinosaur bones out of duplo, a tall T-Rex with his teepee, and a Time Machine with a milk-crate and training-clock. I have also created Andy’s techno-tablet using plastic lid and stick-on velcro!

The only suffering we have to endure is involuntary coercion to be Museum staff!

To date there have been no AHA franchise toys and books added into toy collection. Whew.

I only hope our boys can part with all these toys when the the day comes. There’s only so much toys a house can hold and a parent can endure!
