The Tooth Fairy left 5 new Hot Wheels cars here this week.
This rekindled The Ball Player’s love of toy cars. So he brought them ALL upstairs to play with today.
I don’t know if this collage of pictures better illustrates how boys play vs. how girls play, or first born vs.middle child. Either way, they did have a lot of fun together while the baby napped.
Side note: With the special Thirty One ran last month we ordered a few red junior duffle bags for “organizing”, well concealing, some of our toys. I think the boy will be quite pleased when those arrive and he no longer needs to use this hot pink large utility tote! 😉 I’ll be happy to have my favorite grocery tote back!
If you’re curious, the final count was 157 cars! & I’m sure there are some more in the baby’s room, but I’m not letting anyone go in there to check while she’s sleeping.
I have been asked why I still buy these when he has so many already. The answer is, it’s something we already own, so there’s no problem finding a place for it when a new one comes in the house. He knows right where to put them.
Also he loves them, and I’m sure one day he will play with these same cars with his children, just as his dad plays with him. And yes, some of these cars are almost 30 yrs old.
Hot Wheels and Matchbox never go out of style.
