But, you see, at the age when they were into farms and playing with little plastic farm animals, my children would not have been able to handle most of Charlotte's work. This farm construction is an excellent example. See those peas? They would be mixing it with the weeties within five seconds of play. The sand would be all over the lounge room floor in minutes and that poor little piggy would be wondering where all his dirt went before realising that it was down the throat of a child and he was about to follow suit.
So, whilst I'm admiring of these kinds of creative play constructions, I do wonder who gets to do the actual playing... it's the mum building it, isn't it?
