My kids get along for the most part. Natalie and James make forts, do art, play cops & robbers, build sand castles, play iPad and watch movies together. They do not typically sit and play with toys together.
You see, James prefers to shoot, explode, kidnap, throw or trap action figures.
Natalie prefers to sing, dance, get married, tuck in, snuggle, kiss and be sisters with action figures.
James “ruins all the fun” while Natalie “won’t let me play.”
So, when I saw this today, it screamed unique.
This was a ten minute arrangement with Natalie convincing James that the ponies she didn’t want were super strong (in an attempt to encourage a trade). Then, the playhouses and ponies were divvied up and placed on opposite sides of the room; Natalie dictating that James lived in his city, she in hers. But, for ten minutes I enjoyed this very unique play experience.
