A couple of toy posts lined up for this week:
The Young One has started a collection of these pocket-sized babies called Paciocchini. Cute, no? Evidently they were popular some years ago and are again breaking in on the scene: how retro! Each one has a name and an identity card which lists his or her likes and dislikes, interests, etc. Also, a diaper is included with each toy, but in our case the diaper is quickly broken (velcro) or lost, leaving the baby forever bare-bottomed.
I often think how lucky these little babies are to be of Italian heritage; certainly if they were American the boys would be neutered or all babies would have permanent diapers of some sort, which would make for some nasty rashes, doncha think?
