Where do toys come from?

If you were to ask my children where toys come from, I’m almost certain they’d say “Mama.”

Press further, and you’d discover that my kids think mama makes all toys.

I know this because I get the Constructive Playthings catalog, and, like children have been doing for at least a century, my children use it as a “dream book.”

But while other children might recognize the catalog for what it is and might ask their mother to buy them the toys found within, my children come running to me:

“You should make THIS (pointing at one toy) and THIS.” And then they’re flipping through the catalog like mad, pointing at virtually everything, singing together: “THIS and THIS and THIS.”

They have limitless faith in my abilities.
