imaginary london. incredible toys
In search of toys online, I somehow came about two compelling, if competing sets of wooden London landmarks, and snatched them with much curiosity. Laid out on the table yesterday, the partially duplicated London fell under the scrutiny of the team and came out quite scuffed. Everything seems to be the matter (take the seemingly random selection), but proportions and visual representation are way off. Big Ben and BT Tower are only recognisable by a stretch of the imagination. And that’s the best description of our wooden London, and how we play with it—building imaginary cities. Make sure you have a go next time you visit :)
Meanwhile, some toys were found, as well, and prove a success. Except John would rather juggle with six balls instead of three, so we have to get that sorted. And this image, while colorful, leaves out the most exciting addition: Quoridor, a brilliant strategy game discovered by my sister nearly two years ago. Since I brought it to the office, hardly an afternoon has passed without at least one quick and heated game. Next up? Chess. Because when we expand to the floor below soon, the current Plan room will turn into a Play room. Arriba!
