Our pirate playroom is coming along. The boys have fully embraced playing in the space, thanks to us moving all their legos in (and banning them from returning to the rest of the house). Those little suckers hurt when you step on them. Now we only have to risk it when we are on our [...]
This is the story of a toy that no longer appealed to our kids…that almost ended up in the donation pile…but was spared by a last-minute makeover.
