Luke has owned trains since the day he was born. In fact, when he was still in my womb, one of Oklahoma's most famous train connoisseurs, my nephew, Brody (4 years old), gave Luke his first train. However, for some reason, it was not until Luke turned 15 months old that it started clicking that they were pretty cool toys. AND NOW, all day, every day, we hear ALL about Choo Choos from Luke. Luke ADORES trains!
Because I made the mistake and showed him some trains that I recorded on DVR on television (Thomas and Chuggington), now Luke locates the remote, points it at the TV and exclaims loudly, "Choo Choo! Choo Choo!"
When we go to Walmart, Target or Toy Stores, somehow, Luke has this special super-power vision, that enables him to see Choo-Choo trains from 3000 feet away. He points and exclaims, "choo choo.....choo choo....choo choo" until I also see them and we go right up to them so he can touch them.
I decided to take Luke on adventure to a local toy store last week--Kaleidoscope toys. It looked like an extremely fun toy store and, based on what I read online, they have some unique toys and some excellent learning tools. Well, I didn't really get to look through the store since Luke noticed an awesome train display. And that was it. It's almost as if I heard angels singing----wait---that was Luke making his famous sound of excitement---"EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEeeeeeeeeeeeeee." We were done looking at that toy store, because I knew we would be stationed by the train display for the rest of our time there.
Thank you nice toy store employee lady for letting us come and play with your trains. We really did have plans to look at the rest of your store.
