  2. Incidentally, the 16 year old that lives in my head had had a nice giggle over how dirty that sounded.

  3. Boxes are awesome. Husband got lots of gift boxes from work and my girls could care less about the contents, they having been doing pitched battle over the boxes though.

  10. The last one is very Wizard of Oz, with the box falling on her, and the only thing visible are the stockings sticking out the side.

  12. I made a little house out of a box for my granddaughter this year. She had a blast with it. If I only knew about this beforehand, I could have saved a LOT of money on toys!

  14. Last year my 3 year old would have been happy with a box... alas, this year he has discovered the joy of product...!

  15. Of course the box is the best part. Just ask any kid with a huge new backyard and a whole house full of empty moving boxes.

    That was us 29 years ago, those boxes got played with right through spring, summer and autumn, then they disintegrated in the winter rains.

  16. Aspie Mr 9 has an old moving box he commandeered. It's one of those giant ones, a bit like this one. He's put his fave blankies, pillow, teddies, torch and book in there and he goes in there whenever he feels overwhelmed by things. It's his 'calming box'. (His words). Not to be outdone, Miss 9 grabbed a box of her own which she made into a little home with doorway for her and the cat.
    I love imaginative play. Who needs x-box's, DS's, wees etc when you have a giant box to play with? (Tee hee, giant box...)

  18. @ Steve - "the joy of product". I like that.

    @ Bronnie - there are days when I would love a calming box to crawl into!

  19. I keep trying to convince everyone that the kids don't need _toys_, just boxes. No one listens.

  20. I've had this open for almost a week now, waiting to comment, but it seems my computer has been for purely for the purpose of distracting a recovering 4yo (tonsilitis). Perhaps if she had her own box I could get my computer back? :) Glad to see you are never too old for a box :)
