The super hero roll is perfect for your little guy's little imaginext heros. There is space for 4 mini action figures plus it opens out into a city scape playmat! It is easy to use. Just put your heros and villians in the pocket, fold it in half and roll it up. It stays put with a ribbon tie. The super hero rolls are made of felt that is made of 100% recycled bottles, so they are earth friendly as well as child friendly.
Jayne plays Batman
The city scape is entirely hand embroidered so every roll is an individual. The signal in the sky is custom made with the monogram of your choice. Jayne was so excited about it, asking me when it was going to be ready. I gave it to him this morning and he had the biggest smile. He even figured out that he could match up the car roll road with the city street, something I did not do intentionally! Now him and his Daddy are playing batman on his new roll. We will be bringing this bad boy with us to the wedding we are going to this weekend!
The Cat Returns is one of my favorite animated films. The end song, Kaze Ni Naru, is one of my favorite parts and gave me the longing to play the ukulele. I found just the uke for me here in Montreal. It is part musical instrument and part souvenir of Quebec. I am not terribly good at it yet, but I am starting to get this song down. Once I have it figured out, I will either attempt to learn the words so I can sing along, or move on to another great song. In the meantime, here is a great cover of the song by someone who has been playing a lot longer than I have.
In Montreal adult coloring books are everywhere. When we came back to the states a couple of months ago I found they were popular here too. I really enjoy them and am very particular about what I pick. I like a lot of fine details mixed with whimsy.
Cats in Paris by Won-Sun Jang is simply beautiful. It begins with a sort of tour of Paris, with cats of course. There is a bit of narrative in this portion as well. The art is beautiful but not quite the page covering design work I personally love. The rest of the book makes up for it though. There are patterns and intri'cat' designs. The artwork throughout is beautifully done and a joy to fill in. I am so happy to be able to while away my quiet moments with this book.
