|No amount of air power, human or electric |
can actually get this thing to look
so round and circular.
It should come as no surprise that after a few months of me chasing after the balls, the whole plastic extravaganza found its way to the crawl space.
That is until, for some reason unknown to me at this moment, I decided that The Baby would LOVE it so I pulled it out. I got smart and used the electric air pump this time because I did not want to pass out and miss the look of joy on The Baby's face. Of course, after 15 minutes of hearing the roar of the air pump, The Baby wanted nothing to do with the strange yellow mass groaning (the pool, not me) on the kitchen floor, and Little Diva had increased the volume of Abbie's Flying Fairy School to near tarmac decibels. Yeah, this was going well.
But I was determined to HAVE FUN today, so I got the thing inflated and poured in the bag of balls. For a moment, it was still. The Baby was curious. Cautious. She climbed in and tentatively kicked a few balls around. She smiled with interest. THEN, Little Diva decided to show The Baby how much fun she used to have throwing the balls all over the house and chaos ensued. Within seconds, my living room looked as if a gigantic rainbow beanie baby had exploded. I futilely started singing the Clean Up song, and putting the balls back into the pool, hoping the girls would follow my lead. They did not.
Eventually, I got everyone redirected, and managed to get the thing collected and out of sight. Well, actually, I just moved it downstairs to the play room. By the time I find the rest of the balls, and get it put away, The Baby will probably have outgrown it anyway.
|This set only has 70 pieces|
I guess I will go look for the set of Lego Quatro blocks now.
