Toy Hacking by Linaeve Scroll

INSTRUCTIONS: Take parts from wounded and misfit toys. Re-imagine and assemble them to make a new toy. Ensure that it is played with.

This task was the perfect fit for me.
My husband and I both came to the marriage with a whole stack of old toys, which we compiled into two "treasure chests" that we keep in the living room for when small children come over to play. Some of our toys they like; others, not so much.

FYI: I used some of these toys in my "You are a Mighty King Indeed" task--moat guardians.

So, I dug through our toy chest and chose some of the particularly miscellaneous toys. Then, I put them together into a fun collage that I call: "Cirque Du Soleil Naruto."

Oh! And the green rubber worm toy....IT GLOWS!

As to "ensuring that it is played with": I coaxed Hobbs into having a swat at it. Maybe you will be able to figure out how. However, I also had quite some fun with this light up, acrobatic, colorful beaded masterpiece.

I skipped the writing to view the pictures on my first time through and was delighted to see your cat playing with this amalgamation.

I might suggest leaving out any mention of who ends up playing with the toys. No words can beat the shot of the cat staring at it on the door.

Having an actual toy chest is quite awesome.
