My kids are always playing “laboratory,” where they collaborate on a grand experiment–real or imagined–resulting in one or both of them shrieking, “It’s aliiiiiiiive!”
Never let it be said that we lack imagination around here.
So when our top secret package arrived from Laborastory, they were beyond thrilled. The enclosed kit allowed them to design their own Morphadoodle, a unique creature they could both draw and describe, send it off, then receive a lab report on the creature’s progress. A few weeks later the mad scientists get their very own 15″ hand-sewn critter made to spec from their submission.
If that wasn’t cool enough, that Morphadoodle then joins the rest of the Morphadoodles online, because you can’t keep all that creative genius to yourselves.
Perhaps it was actually I who created a monster here–I’ll never be able to top this one at Christmas. -Mir
