Little person and DF... 8 Years, 1 Month ago  
Hi folks,

Whilst setting up for Friday night's game, I left a board and the MBS box on the lounge floor. When I turned around a small, six-year-old, person was looking rather pleased with herself, and had produced "an olden-days house" to use her own words. Pretty darned good effort, if you ask me.

Cheers,
Phil

Man, that's adorable.

I know I would have been in heaven if my dad had this stuff when I was a kid. It's got to be a kid's dream -- plus, they're smaller, so they seem more capable of, you know, jumping in and running around looking at stuff.

At least, that's what it seems like she's thinking in this picture....

Phil, that's fantastic. What a great capture of a happy moment.

Thod and I have had conversations about our kids playing with our DF stuff. We've also posted pics previously of some of the stuff they've come up with. It always tickles me to see the level of creativity kids can produce when left to their own devices.

lol - so far since purchasing my sets I've had very little time to do anything with them...however my 10 year old may have a bright future in (tudor style) home construction! - he's been very psyched about setting up and using this set...

Tell her that it was a job well done.
She should keep a copy print in her cedar chest to show her daughters what fun she once had with grandpa's toys.

phil,

So tell us, when does Anna start running Games? I assume (always a dangerous thing to do!) Daddy is training her to be sweetly devious? Just be careful; kids often learn something to use in one area, then turn it around and put it to (at least in their minds) good use elsewhere!

Or any way, I did.

She looks to be smart as a whip, anyway. Keep up the good work, both her and you.

See ya!

Hi Jim,

No need to train that one to be sweetly devious. She only looks sweet... ;)

Give her a hug and a "well done!" from Sandy and me.
We love other people's kids; we can spoil them rotten, then give them back to Mom & Dad to deal with later, after we've left!

See ya!

He who fights with monsters should be careful, east he thereby becomes a monster.

Always nice to see others who allow their children to use MasterMaze as well.

This reminds me of an experience I had last week. I was on business trip to the US for a week. I picked up my MBS set to get it home by plane and also chatted with a colleague about my kids.

Q: Do you have any pictures of your kids.

A: Hmm - none with me - but wait. A few clicks away at a certain forum I have posted a few as they are playing with MasterMaze.

2 minutes later I could show them proud and smiling having build up some MM of their own.

Okay - next time I just have a photo with me. But good to have a back-up.
