God of plastic creatures(We have not yet graduated to a complete plastic free life!!!)

Nachikaet has always been fascinated by animals ever since I can remember. He has always found them more interesting than humans (speaks volumes about the humans in his life). We have quite a large “zoo” at home and all kind of creatures ranging from farm animals to prehistoric creatures dwell in perfect harmony. The amazing part is that he has never “outgrown” these animals like he has with all his other toys. He takes them out at least once a week to assure himself that all his well in his “little kingdom” . Its heartening to see him line them up in military order and conduct a guard of honour.

For all their worth in plastic these little creatures sure have given one little boy many hours of pure joy and fun .Here is a picture of our apartment cleared of all furniture for the “drill”



  1. Anupama,

    Chanced upon your blog from a comment that you left on my blog. It was very nice reading your posts. Will come back again to catch up on more.

    My daughter is also so interested in animals and that is something that simply does not seem to outgrow.

    My daughter has somehow grown out of making this long caravans . I truly miss it :( :D
    I hadn't realised it until now when I saw this pic. Now I wonder where all those animals have gone ! May be I should dig them out and keep them some where she can see them :D
