Little Red Riding Hood.

My youngest is a little more than obsessed with the story of Red Riding Hood right now. Which is great by me, as I am currently into painting stories right now. I have always loved making toys for the kids…actually now that I think about it I have really liked making toys my entire life…not really playing with toys. I was always the type to set up a huge train track for my brothers and then leave them to it… or build an ornate Barbie house for my sister and then go flip through a magazine just when she anticipated I would play with her. Perhaps that is the side of me I tap into when it comes to designing new spaces on this house… because I pretty much love building and having a contractor at my disposal more than anything in this world. Anyway…so back to the toys…I love the story of Red Riding Hood as much as Noa. I remember I had one of those dolls as a little girl…the kind where you flip the hood over and it’s the grandma face, and then even weirder yet you flip the whole doll over and there…under her skirt is a big scary wolf face…talk about messing with the head of a little girl! What’s up with that…who thought that was a good idea, “look here under her skirt…. you just pull her dress up and GRRRRRRRRRR a ferocious elderly devouring wolf face.”
As much as the kids are loving these little toys I think I love seeing them playing with them even more. I hope to make a few other fairy tales…. and it seems I may have plenty of time as this storm is heading straight at us. Eek. If you don’t hear from us for a few says we may be in OZ.

    This is so sweet! Looks like she is having so much fun. A great way to use her imagination in playing! I have always loved stuff like that too… setting up, creating toys and games. 🙂 Stay safe, T!!

    so much fun! And isn’t it great to see our kids playing that doesn’t involve a ‘screen’? Happy PPF!

    I love this idea – we have so many toilet rolls floating around our house! And I love that it encourages creative play for the kids. Thank you for sharing x

    I love this, what a fun way to make a story play set! Love the idea of using cardboard tubes, so they stand up!
