The Boy is currently playing Hide and Seek. He usually plays it with Mr. TheBoyandMe, but he's found some new friends to play it with. Thing is, they're almost as rubbish as him at it, because just when he's looking for them, one of them chirrups "bye-bye!" and gives the game away.
Trust inanimate objects to not know how to play properly!
Before I introduce his new friends to you, let me explain that I hate noisy toys. Hate and detest. And so when I heard that TRU were sending me three such toys, I almost wept. And then I reached for a very strong coffee.
What are they?
They are The Sing-a-ma-jigs.
Weird looking things aren't they?
However, they are one of the hottest toys for Christmas and within thirty seconds of getting them out of the box I completely understood why, and all three of us have fallen in love with them. Yes, even Mr. TheBoyandMe. And I don't know if it was some coincidence that TRU sent us three, but it's just as well because we have one each. Mine's the one on the right.
The Sing-a-ma-jigs are soft toys about eight inches high. When you press their tummies, they change the shape of their mouths and 'sing'. And they really do appear to sing a range of musical notes, each Sing-a-ma-jig is at a different pitch. There are three functions (which are changeable by pressing their left hand); singing a song, chatter (jibber-jabber) and harmonising with each other. I don't know how that one works, but it does appear to!
We love them and even though I hate noisy toys, I love these. After all, they're not noisy; they're musical!
