More than $9 worth
Recently I took my little guy for a trip on the train to the BrisStyle Indie Twilight Markets in the Brisbane city square. It was a great way for us to fill a Friday afternoon and early evening. The colourful pavement lights, the statues in the city square and the train ride home in the dark were a big hit with the four year old and of course I got to check out the lovely crafty offerings.
The cube kit sat in the sewing room for a few weeks and we got it put together over the weekend. We bought stuffing, little fingers pushed in volumes of the stuff to fill the cube, in went the little rattle ball (this was a very exciting bit) and eventually when all was ready I sewed the opening closed.
And the story? Not one to resist a linguistic challenge my husband has worked it all out. Its not really a story, more some statements about the pictures - things like "Hello Elephant, what are you doing?", "Balancing on the ball!", "How clever!".
This soft cube has been belted all over the house, tossed, caught, thrown in faces, almost knocked glassware off the bench...all this entertainment for the three of us for $9 was a real bargain.
