For the Birthday Boy!

The birthday book making continues unabated! Although we stretched the word book a little bit in this case, I think. Still, it came out fantabulous, if I do say so myself. Presenting two magnetic animal sets:

underwater page

Everything except the boat and seaweed is separate on that one - and you can see the always awesome sight of a killer whale eating a giant squid.

safari page

Here, everything except the river and mountains is separate - keep your eye on that mountain-scaling turtle. I hear those suckers are fast.

safari page (showing magnet back)

This one is just to show that even the scene itself is separate from the board, so in theory we could make even more backdrops in the future.

All the underwater animals we made, and the barebones background.

And now, all the safari animals and their background.

Stay tuned - a tutorial is totally coming up next!

On the bottom picture, middle of the first column, there's a little monkey - Lara drew that one!

These things are awesome and incredibly popular already, the kids saw them early and won't stop playing with them.

I'm obviously biased but there's no magnet toy thing nearly half as cool as this! They're super thin but durable, ultra cute, and easy to manipulate, stick on and off, and the whole thing is convenient and bright and happy!

Oh he's so cute playing with this! His best reaction ever - you see the underwater animals, top row, next to the eel, there's a narwhal? Jakey saw it an without missing a beat picked it up and said "rhino-whale."
