The Three Ninja Pigs

IMG_3641

Are you ready for the three ninja pigs?

An adventure that brings the three little pigs into the path of the Big Bad Wolf, and it seems that each encounter (in Granny’s house, huffing and puffing, Cinderella’s shop) gets the three ninja pigs into more trouble than the Wolf.

But these aren’t our ordinary three little pigs, no way.  A ninja always has a cunning trick.  Maybe the wolf will get his comeuppance…

Fun little picture book, with entertaining illustrations.

Zombie apocalypse…

Or spy village, or pony town (the more terrifying option!)

What do you do if you acquire a cardboard village?

IMG_1638IMG_1639 You let the dotes do a little town planning, a little squabbling over whether the church should be in the centre of town or in the suburbs, then you settle in to get swept along in the mayhem.

This little village has had some bad traffic jams due to escaping convicts (in toy cars), a surprisingly destructive infestation of sparkly eyed ponies (courtesy of Lil’ comedian) and of course a zombie attack from all manner of toy monsters that happen to be lying around the playroom.

We aunties sometimes find that we’ve set the bar high on imagination that we struggle to keep up with, but having props like this has given the dotes a chance to lead the story.  All they ask (demand) is that we get involved!
