Asher received a very nice surprise in the mail from his Aunt Sisi. It was a Thomas (aka "Tah") the Train flashlight. It was a well thought out gift since his new infatuations are with Elmo, Mickey, and Thomas.
Well, so far he's a little unsure about the new toy. It chugs and choos and whistles. I suppose that's a little scary to a 17 month old. So once you get the new Thomas out and turn it on Asher goes running for the hills. However, he flocks to the FedEx box it came in. He LOVES it! He can stand on it, jump down from it, reach up on it, and push it like a car. It's loads of fun!
So, Sisi I'm sure he'll warm up to the Thomas flashlight like he does so many of his other toys but until then we're going to have a blast with the box. Next time just an empty FedEx box will suffice:)
