Characters.

Finn has never met a character he didn’t like.  He’s got all of the Scooby gang.  Every Marvel superhero and a Batman, just because he can.  Close to every Cars character from both movies.  Thomas and all his friends.  And every member of the Toy Story gang.  Throw in some Angry Birds for good measure and you’ll get a picture of what it’s like at our house.  I am just waiting for him to discover Star Wars.  He likes all of his guys and plays with them daily creating all kinds of worlds where Iron Man and Hulk defeat the ghoul from Scooby Doo while riding on Rex from Toy Story. 

His imagination lately has totally blown me away.  I can see him being a writer.

I find Velma hiding out in the fridge while getting ‘frozen’ so the gang has a mystery to solve.  I see Spidey casting a web on my kitchen counters.  I step on Captain America regularly when getting out of bed in the morning.  Lightening uses my buffet table as a track.

Tate’s favorite toys are {not surprisingly} Finn’s. She steals anything she can get her hands on. Velma is, by far her favorite, she holds her in the car, while picking up Finn at preschool, even while nursing. There is rarely a time when she’s crawling that we don’t hear a click, click, click across the dining room floor and notice she’s got a slobber filled Spidey or Scooby or Iron Man.

We are a house full of characters.

My 25 yr old daughter collected characters at the same age and spent hours entertaining herself in imaginary games with her "figgers". She couldn't say "figures", as I referred to them, so they became her beloved "figgers". They are safely tucked away in the attic where they await the children she will someday have and I can hardly wait to pull them out and say hello to the cast of characters that filled her early childhood. There's a lot of Disney in that box along with Wizard of Oz, Little Ponies...etc. What great memories!

Oh, girlfriend. I hear you on this one. At least it sounds like Finn shares - Eli isn't there yet and there's loads of tears at my house as a result.

Love the photos with this post! Your comment about Star Wars brought back memories. My son moved onto those and loved them. Then he started in with the Star Wars legos... but that's another collection altogether :)

My girls are the same way with their legos.

We have lots and lots also:)) But where do you keep them? Is he good about picking them up? We always have cars, trains, and monster trucks everywhere.
