Nerdy Mom Plays With Kids’ Toys, Vol. 6 – Tender Moments

Posted on January 13th, 2017

Happy Friday, lovely di-hards! Minnie could never have guessed that being lost at sea would result in a very special connection with a misunderstood sea “monster”. After all, he’s really just a creature looking for love, like you and me (but more scaly). Sometimes, if an orphaned mini counting-bear comes along at the right point in […]

The 2016 Review + New Year Questionnaire

Posted on January 11th, 2017

Happy New Year! Isn’t it nice to have a new start, after the year we’ve had? Time for the semi-traditional New Year’s Questionnaire. This year, I’ve decided to take some liberties with it. That is to say, I deleted or modified the questions that were annoying me or seemed repetitive. No time for baloney in 2017! […]

Antique Children’s Book: The Epic Animal Cutes Conclusion

Posted on November 26th, 2016

Here we go. The conclusion of Animal Cutes – and finally, some hope for our ugly friends. Puppy knows. Like the sunflowers among which he frolics, his time in the sun will nourish him in health as he becomes an adult dog. He also knows he’s actually the love-child of a Mastiff and a St. Bernard, so […]

Antique Children’s Book, Part 3: Kangaroo, Elephant, and Pig

Posted on November 24th, 2016

I know, the last instalment was kind of intense… Not as whimsical as they look, these Animal Cutes. I’m afraid Part 3 also contains some sinister activities. Poor Miss K. Look at her face. She is clearly fleeing in terror. My sleuthing tells me that the backwards K on her shirt symbolizes, in baseball, “a strikeout looking […]

Antique Children’s Book, Part 2 – Sailor Hippo, Tommy Duckling, and Ostrich

Posted on November 23rd, 2016

Antique Children’s Book, Animal Cutes: The plot thickens. If you thought the questionably cute critters in Part 1 were subversive, get a load of Part 2. Hoo boy. So many questions. Why is the hippo a sailor? Why is he old and illiterate? Why is he trying to look wise? I have a notion that “Old […]

Antique Children’s Book, Part 1: Kitty, Polly Parrot, and Cubby Bear

Posted on November 21st, 2016

We’re taking a break from Nerdy Mom for today, to introduce you to the Antique Children’s Book my parents found among their inherited things. It is surmised to be a book that belonged to my mom’s dad when he was a child, so it’s getting on towards a hundred years old. And it’s more than a […]

Nerdy Mom Plays With Kids’ Toys, Vol. 4 – Relationships

Posted on November 20th, 2016

We all know from Toy Story that these characters don’t just lie still in the dark. They get up, have adventures, bond, and then cleverly put themselves back in a “just-got-dropped-here” position. Some of these friends have really become close over the years.         *** Related Posts:No Related Posts

Nerdy Mom Plays With Kids’ Toys, Vol. 3: Romance

Posted on November 19th, 2016

Romance is in the air in our rec room! Today’s post is extra-nerdy, and kinda inappropriate. {I do have quite a few of these photos to help get me through the month… And also because once you start seeing the possibilities, making toy portraits is rather addictive. But I promise to write something worth reading […]

Yes, there’s more. It’s only natural that these friendships between toys develop.     *** Related Posts:A Smiley Video for a Happy Frozen FridayBuying a Baby for the Birthday Boy
