Meet the New Fisher-Price Friends & Treehouse CONTEST!

Building a Sofa Fort & Camping Out Together!
I rose early the other day, knowing that my kids had a day off school.  I find that my day goes more smoothly when the kids wake and immediately get dressed, wash their hands, face, teeth and brush their hair.  If I can get that down pat quickly, then breakfast is a breeze, and I'm off to a great start.

However, that morning I was greeted by a happy surprise: my daughter was up and helping her little brothers get ready for the day!  When I walked into the bathroom, she had helped the youngest guy get dressed, had finished his hair, and was starting on his teeth!  I wondered why my daughter was up so early, and organizing her brothers, no less!

It turns out that my daughter had a big day planned for her brothers!  In the attic, she had taken our sectional couch apart, and was building a fort!  In my daughter's mind, she was building a "camp" for her brothers, complete with beds, toys, books and even bottled water.  It was very well-thought out, and the kids played "camp out" for the entire day, fully absorbed in their imaginary play.  They even asked in they could spend the night in their "camp", that's how much fun they had together!

To me, this was a clear lesson of what you can achieve when you take the initiative, and I'm proud of my daughter!
The New Fisher-Price Little People Gang!
Great news!  Did you know that Fisher-Price has just introduced FIVE new Fisher-Price Little People?  Starting from Miss Hugg (on the left), they are Tessa, Eddie, Mia, Koby, and Sofie.  My kids think that the characters are cute, and I like that care has been taken to add diversity to the friends.  I also like that the newest Little People have been built longer and thinner than previous ones, making it easier for kids to grasp them.  Find out more about the newest Fisher-Price Little People.

My youngest two boys immediately identified best with "Eddie", and pretended that Eddie was driving a toy car.  My youngest guy pretended that Sofie was walking to school, which I thought was cute because he walks his siblings to school each and every day!  One of my guys put all of the Little People to bed with him (actually inside the covers) last night.  What a cute age!
So Happy Together!

My 4th born child is like Koby, the dark-haired joker!  Like Koby, my son is always smiling, being silly, and you just feel good being around him with all his cheer.  Click on the video below to see Koby!

Meet Koby!

My 3rd child is quite similar to Eddie, the fair-haired athlete.  My son will just not walk, if he can run to his destination!  He can also navigate all the playground equipment like a professional gymnast, and loves challenging himself physically.  See the video of Eddie, below!

    1. Amy, you have great eyes! Yes, I signed up all 5 kids for the programme and they each made their own truck. They love the ones they hand-built and play with them regularly.
