Alternative marketing

Corin's two favorite things to do with the dollhouse we got him for Christmas, to go with his Playmobil vacation family and rescue workers: 1) set various room on "fire" to put out (OK, that goes with firefighter and police officer figures) and 2) make the dad get in the bathtub, then ring the doorbell and run out of the room while I make him run down the stairs to answer the door. These scenes have never appeared on the packaging to a dollhouse in the history of the world (although I have fun imagining such a box).

Alistair has started getting his tongue into his noisemaking, so his "aaaaaah"s are turning into "blah blah blah"s. Fun!
