I felt like I was in Whoville, as I was surrounded by gift wrap and brown paper packages, and some tied by string!
Armed by AA and AAA, we hunted screwdrivers to remove and/or place energy stores for the baubles and bangles that were needed to make each one move.
Had 3 lights that you can hook anywhere to provide temporary but bright light. Useful for a closet, or my grandson hiding beneath the covers with his favorite book (yes, he does that). One we tossed as defective (yes it happens). Cannot return as it came too late for last years Christmas, but impossible to return as it appears to be from some remote country with an alphabet I cannot read. But that’s a stuffer. The real gift I’m hopeful will take this young magician places, last year it was cards, this year–juggling balls!
I always wanted a jewel box with the ballerina that spins and plays music, my girls each have one, personalized (oh what they think of these days)! Completed with a piece of jewelry.
We have Legos and Transformers, and books and memories built with portraits.
The most fascinating was the automatic card shuffler for my dad.
Not to forget the candy! Nuts for one, trail mix another. I skipped my Chex Mix this year, a Weight Watcher no no.
Wading through which roll to unwind, cut and tape was undaunting, but at the end we found our kitchen table, and it has been transformed back to its original form, a place to dine.
We are ready for next weeks undoing!
