Being a Grammie who takes care of a little granddaughter every day, I like to bring over new toys to play with when I go to her house.
After all, looking at the same ones day after day gets boring for baby and for Grammie, too.
Well, one of the all time favorites is a little type of Noah's Arc.
You push the animals, like a lion and a birdie and they make sounds.
The toy includes giraffes, too!
The elephant has a sound like "oh-OOOOOO-wahhhhh," "oh-OOOOOO-wahhhhh," with the emphasis on the oooooo's.
The toy also plays several songs and lights up. It's a hoot.
The problem is, even when no one turns it on, it continues to make noise. (Lots of noise.)
Coming in from the car the other day, I'm sure the neighbors wondered what the racket was:
If anyone asked about the noises, I was prepared to answer, "Oh, just an elephant in the bag."
"Oh-OOOOOO-wahhh," wailed the elephant and Grammie had a good laugh.
