when little sophia came to visit us a couple of weeks ago with her grandmother, sandy, she taught us a thing or two about serious playing ...
question one: how do you know when you've had a really good play?
answer: when you've tried out every single toy at your disposal and made a really big mess.
question two: once you've had a good look at all those toys, how do you decide which is the ultimate one to play with?
answer: that's easy, silly. it's the hippo. of course. and then you have to ROAR like he does.
question three: seeing as - what with all that playing and roaring and mess-making - you're going to get pretty tired, you'll need some kind of sustenance. what is the playing fuel of choice of a little blue eyed hippo-imitator?
answer: hot chocolate!
we look forward to seeing sandy and sophia and all their friends again (and the hippo has been asking when his new bff will come for another playdate).
