When Oscar and Edgar were babies, it was largely up to us, their parents, and our generous friends and family members to choose the toys they thought would be best for them. And anyone who has ever seen their collection of toys can testify that they do okay. However, with the exception of the Oscar Wilde and Edgar Allan Poe action figures, and possibly their Queen Elizabeth I rubber duck, the selections are largely conventional–educational, thoughtful, and wonderful, but conventional.
As our resident toy experts, Oscar and Edgar understandably feel as though they should have a say in what toys we select for August. And their choices are anything but conventional. No fluffy bunnies or black-and-white rattles. Oh, no–not for August.
This was the selection Edgar recently made for August.
An inspired choice to be sure. And I have a feeling things are only going to get more interesting from here!
