Eli 4.0: the List

I helped Eli make a list of the toys he was taking to Shreveport. He takes so many toys that they're hard to keep track of, so I told him we could make a list so that he'd be sure to bring them all back.

Then he forgot the list, but that's a different story.

We started cataloging his "mini-figures" that he was going to take. Here are the descriptions he gave me (verbatim).
1. Little Buzz with long wings
2. Little Buzz shooting laser
3. Emperor Zurg shooting balls
4. LGM's saying "ooooh." (3)
5. Bullseye kicking up happily
6. Jessie standing. She's not doing anything.
7. Woodie waving

For a four-year old, at least a new one, what the figure is doing is part of its identification. If they look happy or sad, that's also part of who they are.

I just thought that was interesting (your mileage may vary).
