PostSubject: BIG Trouble at the Training Tower!   Sun Feb 24, 2013 9:14 pm

It's come to the end of the half term holidays, and my daughter has had the Training Tower up all week.

I never had one as a kid and it's only seeing her using it that I began to understand what fantastic play value it has.
She's used it at some point every single day, and even when she had playmates over, she was quick to show them it and they got stuck in.

These pics were taken at various times over the week. After Dan the coat asked about a Comic programme, I downloaded the 30 day free trial of Comic Life 2. This is my first go (Although I have used Comic life before) and it's great - very straightforward but if you get stuck there's plenty of advice on the net or videos on you tube!
















I particularly liked the last image of the Commander coming down the ladder.

Hannah was over the moon after about three days and I heard her shouting from the hallway 'Da! Da, come quick!!!'
She'd set the Commander up as if he was climbing the ladder, and in an excited voice said something that had me in stitches and I think will resonate with many of us..

'Look! Look - his hands! I FINALLY got him to hold something!!!'

Wonderful upload ! So very nice to see your daughter reliving where we once were. How better than to have a collectable of ours being reborn through our children. Great thread.

lol! He'll have to be quick, Alexander - as supportive as my wife is, having this monster of a play item set up all the time would try even her patience! Laughing

I'm not going to go there!!!!!!


We can always try again during the Easter hols, tho'! cheers

Beautiful story, Jim! Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy

I thought for a minute the "snaps and pops" were the tabs of the tower sections breaking. Shocked I'm relieved it was just the breakfast cereal. Wink

Let Hannah show us the way! Great to see the old toys really being played with!
